HARLOW is now the location of perhaps the finest collection of truly public sculpture in the United Kingdom (acknowledged as such by the Marsh Prize 2010) and includes the work of famous sculptors such as Henry Moore, Barbara Hepworth and Rodin.

To complement this Harlow Art Trust and Friends of Harlow Sculpture and Gibberd Gallery launched the 3rd edition of the HARLOW SCULPTURE MAP showing all 84 pieces of public sculpture at a gathering in the Gibberd Gallery on 22nd August 2014.

All the sculptures can be visited by following the various trails which are shown on the map and also can be downloaded from the Gibberd Gallery website www.gibberdgallery.co.uk

The Friends (FoHS&GG) are a voluntary group whose members play a vital role in supporting the Harlow Art Trust in promoting and caring for the sculptures and the Gallery. They work alongside partners to provide opportunities to appreciate and celebrate these exceptional collections with Guided Tours and Talks.

At the Launch on Friday 22nd August, in the Gibberd Gallery, the Friends drew the prize winner of a raffle for a Painting created and donated by Jackie Chakravarti. The winning ticket number 0077 was drawn by a ‘lady in pink’ (Jane Whittle) and the painting was delivered to the lucky winner, Marion Farningham, that evening by Lin Hilton, who had kindly organised this; the first raffle by the FoHS&GG. Do look out for our next raffle which again will be an original painting by a well know local artist.

The proceeds will go towards the conservation and reframing of one the watercolours in the permanent collection of Sir Frederick Gibberd which he gave to the town, now housed in the Gibberd Gallery for all to enjoy.
