THIS year’s Harlow Art and Sculpture trail is due to run from 25th June to 9th July, throughout the town. The Harvey Centre is confirmed to be hosting a number of exhibits in its stores for the first time. Stores taking part include Bell and Co, Marquee Models, Harlow Mobility, The Phoenix Resource Centre as well as a currently empty unit on the first floor of the centre. Other locations throughout the town that are participating include Gibberd Gallery, Central Library, Ecco, Natwest, Eastgate Gallery, Flirt Studio, Firebird Radio, Gatehouse Studio, 91 Barbers, Razed Roof, Wheel Power, Mirra Beauty, Barnes & Co, King Du, and The Playhouse Theatre.

The trail is in its third year and forms part of the Essex Summer of Arts Festival which is the county’s biggest annual visual festival, showcasing the talents of its artists. This year the Harlow Art and Sculpture Trail is set to be bigger than ever before, with 21 talented artists exhibiting their work across the town.

The organisers are also dedicating one venue to the young artists of Harlow for the first time this year, so if anyone knows of a promising young Picasso or budding Rembrandt who would like their work included, they should get in touch with Amanda Westbury from Gatehouse Arts at [email protected] Any artwork will need to be delivered to the Gibberd Gallery or The Phoenix Resource Centre by 20th June.

As part of the trail, visitors wishing to get a ‘behind the scenes’ insight into the trail can also meet for a FREE tour at 11am on July 9th at Eastgate Gallery. This approximately one hour tour of the Gatehouse Arts Studios also includes the chance to meet some of the artists.

Bryan Young, Centre Manager at The Harvey Centre says, “We are thrilled to be participating in this Year’s Harlow Art and Sculpture trail and look forward to welcoming visitors from across the County to enjoy the talents of our community. Art and sculpture are such a poignant element of the town’s heritage, it’s only fitting that we celebrate this during the Essex Summer of Art.”
