Rose’s association with Jerwood is long standing. She was shortlisted for the fourth Jerwood Painting Prize (1997) and went on to be shown in Give and Take at Jerwood Space (2000), and in the Jerwood Drawing Prize (2002). Wylie has most recently been awarded the 2011 Paul Hamyln Prize for Visual Arts.

Liz Gilmore, Director of Jerwood Gallery says:

“We are delighted to celebrate Rose Wylie’s contribution to painting through our inaugural show. Rose sets the direction for all our future exhibitions: to recognise creative talent and nurture what is most significant and important to both artists and visitors. The contemporary programme will complement Jerwood’s Collection of Modern British Art, which itself is live and growing and a source of inspiration for artists today. We are delighted to host the first retrospective of her work in the UK”.

Big Boys Sit in the Front opens Saturday 17 March and is on until Sunday 1 July 2012.
