It was a fabulous evening celebrating the arts in Harlow. The exhibition runs for another 5 weeks, it’s well worth a visit, take your purse/wallet along and support local artists

Support your local Artist, now that is interesting. The gibberd Gallery charge a fee for each individual Art piece to be entered into this show if chosen. The Gibberd Gallery must be the only Gallery that i know of who actually charge an entry fee with acceptance to the RA Summer exhibition. This gallery and many more galleries have funds to pay for professional Artists to exhibit their work. As for the crackerjack prize giving.. the longest short talk and grabbing the mic says it all. Furthermore! As for naming Harlow as the sculpture town?.... Harlow has always been known to be the sculpture town eversince the likes of Henry moore came to town, and what a fine collection of contemporary work they are indeed, however! there has been a new sculpture recently added which has been placed in the wrong location and has contaminated the landscape view. THE OWL WITH HOBBIT FEET is just an eyesore.... What garden center was it purchased from???
