Rachel Howard’s work You Can Save Me will be on view as part of Look Back Now: Jerwood Gallery is 5. Acquired for the Jerwood Collection, the painting was part of her 2015 solo show At Seaa significant body of works which drew parallels between the sea, memories of childhood and ideas of being adrift. 

Elsewhere, new works by Howard feature in a group exhibition, which provides a snapshot of contemporary drawing practices. Opening on 2 March, the Drawing Biennial 2017 focusses on work on paper by leading international artists of different generations.

The Biennial will culminate in an online auction in the exhibition’s two final weeks with proceeds going to support the organisation’s ongoing programme.

Also opening this month, Rachel Howard’s first work to combine painting and sculpture features in Sette Opere per la Misericordia or Seven Works for Mercy - an exhibition curated by Mario Codognato at the Italian Cultural Institute, London.
