JCR Art Online and Collection Favourites

PMB | ART are pleased to present a collection display showcasing star pieces from the collection, alongside highlights and favourites selected by the curator, governing committee, JCR students, and the gallery invigilators. Delving into the collection, this display includes paintings, sculptures, photographs, prints and drawings. Explore the breadth of the collection from those bought during the first few years of its inception, to the student artworks which are loaned out to JCR members for their bedrooms.  

We are also delighted to showcase the winners of the 2020 Pembroke JCR Art Prize. This is an annual competition run by the JCR Art Rep and open to all Pembroke students. We hope that this competition gives everyone the chance to engage with artistic practices, no matter their subject of study. Along with the competition, the JCR Art Rep also runs a series of life drawing classes, alongside special arts events.

The exhibition is on display in the Pembroke Art Gallery, which Pembroke College generously allows the Collection to be exhibited in. With track lighting, hanging system and environmental controls, the purpose built space allows us to display paintings, drawings, photographs, digital media and sculptures. We are always looking for ways to display our collection in interesting and engaging displays, and to improve the gallery space in order to keep our collection safe.

Our Collection Favourites

The students on the governing committee (current and from last year) and those who invigilate the space, as well as our Curator and History of Art Student Placements, have selected their favourite artworks and written short captions explaining why these works appeal to them. Not all of them could be included in the exhibition, but you can read about some additional works on our Blog.

Each year the Pembroke JCR Art Rep runs an Art Competition for the Pembroke College undergraduate students.  Any artform is allowed to be entered, and a small stipend is available for materials and framing. There is a small cash prize for first, second and third place. This year we chose to display them in the gallery alongside works from our collection.

You can take a virtual walkthrough of our Collection Favourites on the JCR Art Collection's website.
