Opened in 2004, the Gibberd Gallery, on the Mezzanine floor in the Civic Centre, holds a Frederick Gibbered Collection of watercolours and drawings alongside a varied programme of temporary exhibitions. Sir Frederick Gibbered donated many works containing pieces by some of Britain's most influential artists to Harlow Council.
Overlooking the picturesque Water Gardens and its sculptures by Rodin, Frink and Moore, the free admission gallery has a permanent collection of over fifty important 20th Century watercolours including Piper, Bawden, Nash, Blackadder and Victoria Crowe. Temporary exhibitions are displayed on the central walls of the gallery and the changing exhibition programme is an eclectic mix of work from both local and world renown artists.
Run in partnership with the Harlow Arts Trust the gallery holds regular exhibitions including sculpture, an Open, talks and workshops. The Friends of Harlow Sculpture and Gibberd Gallery are an active group, who can offer organised tours of the sculptures and also have an exciting programme of trips and events.
Monday to Friday, 9am to 4:45pm, closed Bank Holidays.
Special openings some Saturdays: listed on the events calendar
