New Exhibition: Jools Holt, Jersey Icons

Jersey Library Gallery

The work of Jools Holt focuses on the sites, buildings and structures treasured by Islanders and appreciated by visitors alike. She attended art college at the North East Wales Institute - Glyndwr University during the punk era inspired by the creativity in the music, clothes, attitude and images of the time. Using 'Artography' a combination of photography and mixed media to create her art, her pieces emanate an authentic hand created feel with a professional finish.

Jools is currently exploring ways to transform traditional Jersey monuments, relics and features into modern day icons so that they can reappear today as part of contemporary living in prints, canvas, block images, cards, postcards and paintings.  This artwork is a process incorporating photography, painting, software and collage resulting in more than fifty images that are part of her 'Jersey Icon series', a contemporary take on traditional Jersey views, places and anything that could be described as iconic. 

The work of Jools Holt is available from The Harbour Gallery, St Aubin and via her website

Free admission: no booking necessary.

The Golden Age of Murder - a special talk by Martin Edwards

Classic crime fiction has an enduring worldwide appeal. This talk examines the story behind the seemingly artificial world of country house murder and bodies in libraries, and explains why the books of Agatha Christie and her colleagues said more about the real world than is usually supposed.

Martin Edwards, eighth President of the Detection Club (whose predecessors include the Queen of Crime herself, G K Chesterton, and Dorothy L Sayers), series consultant to the British Library’s bestselling series of Crime Classics, and author of the multi-award winning The Golden Age of Murder, will guide you through this fascinating area of literary history.

To reserve your place at this free event, please visit Jersey library or contact us on +44 (0) 1534 448700 or by email.

​4.30pm to 6pm
