Talks and Tours led by artist Lee Grandjean in celebration of International Sculpture Day
Saturday 29 April 2pm – 4pm
LEE Grandjean invites you to join him and Harlow Sculpture Town Tour Leader Jenny Organ for a special afternoon talks and tours. The event will start with Lee leading a tour of his exhibition ‘Seeing Things’ in the Gibberd Gallery. Lee & Jenny will then take you on a tour of the key sculptures in the Town Centre that came to Harlow in the 1950s-1970s. These include works by Henry Moore, Elizabeth Frink, William Mitchell, Ralph Brown & Auguste Rodin.
Lee Grandjean spent his teenage years in Harlow in the 1960s. He lived in a flat overlooking the monumental sculpture ‘Contrapuntal Forms’ (1951) by Barbara Hepworth. His exhibition ‘Seeing Things’ is a major retrospective of his work over the last 30 years and his first solo show in Harlow. Lee was a senior tutor in sculpture for many years at the Royal College of Art and received an honorary fellowship from the RCA in 2011.
As well as giving you a special insight into his stunning exhibition ‘Seeing Things’ Lee will share memories of his life in Harlow and his reflections on some of the town’s most famous sculptures.
