The Turner Contemporary Centre
In April 2011 the Turner Contemporary Art Gallery opened in Margate. This project is a long-held dream of John Croft, Chairman of the Margate Civic Society. He wanted to pay homage to the connection the nineteenth century painter JMW Turner felt with Margate and who described the Thanet skies as the “loveliest in all Europe”.
JMW Turner 1775(?) – 1851
Commonly known as “the painter of light”, John Mallord William Turner is considered Britain’s greatest landscape painter. Working in watercolour and oil, he created semi-abstract works full of light and atmosphere. After travelling in Europe he painted mostly in the East and South East of the UK. His last words before he died were, “The sun is God.”
Shows at the Turner Contemporary
The Turner centre is situated on Margate’s seafront. Besides being a monument to one of Britain’s greatest ever landscape artists, the Turner Contemporary hosts modern artists, shows and cultural events. One well-known contemporary name featured by the gallery is Tracey Emin, who works in multi-media, including: watercolour, photography, neon and fabric.
