Harlow Arts Trail
The Harlow Art and Sculpture Trail is a celebration of the visual art

The artworks can be found in the windows of shops, businesses and Galleries.The shops taking part in the trail are: Nat West, Nationwide, Phoenix resource centre, Gigi, Harlow mobility, marquee models, Tesco & blue inc.

The trail has been organised by a partnership consisting of Gatehouse Arts, The Gibberd Gallery and The Harvey Shopping Centre.

As part of the trail there will be a special exhibition in the Eastgate Gallery entitled “Trails” running from June 4th through to July 4th and guided studio tours on the 27th/28th June at 1 and 2pm.

There is also a chance for a cuppa at the Hunt and Darton Café, a pop up social and artistic hub where spontaneity and performance meet great food and art.

All the art trail exhibitions and events are free so pick up a venue guide at the gallery and other participating venues.

Gatehouse Arts marketing co-ordinator Claire Jones said ” Last year was the first Harlow Art trail and we had a lot of great feedback from both the artists and participating businesses. This year we have included a themed exhibition curated by and showcasing the work of Local artists and makers.”

Karen Clempner, Essex County Councillor Harlow West Division said

“The Harlow Art and Sculpture Trail is a fantastic opportunity to showcase Harlow’s rich artistic heritage. Whether it is the legacy of great 20th Century Sculpture, one of the largest collections of public art in the country, with works by Henry Moore, Rodin, Hepworth, Fink and Mills amongst many others, or the vibrant contemporary arts scene. I am looking forward to revisiting many artistic favourites, and discovering some great new art.”

The Essex Summer of Art/ENAS event is brought to you by Essex County Council’s Cultural Development in partnership with firstsite, Essex Network of Artist’s Studios, and Visit Essex.
