On Friday 15th December 2023, we are delighted to welcome the Bailiff to officiate at the unveiling of our 150th Anniversary Commemorative Artwork. We kindly ask that you make your way to the Members’ Room, 7 Pier Road, no later than 12.45pm, in readiness for the main event.
This will be followed by some festive refreshments and snacks, rounding up our anniversary year with this last event.
A local illustrator and designer has been selected to make a special public artwork to celebrate the Société Jersiaise’s 150th anniversary after an open call out run by ArtHouse Jersey.
Having received a number of applications from professional artists with connections to Jersey, the Société and ArtHouse Jersey have chosen a design by Lauren Radley which is inspired by the iconic blue and white tiles from Delft in the Netherlands.
Lauren’s design will consist of 150 individually illustrated tiles each bearing illustrations representing local history and referencing the Société’s work over the last century-and-a-half. The tiles will also feature text in Jèrriais to signify the linguistic heritage of the island.
The artwork has been generously sponsored by the Government of Jersey with the Creative Island Partnership.
