I regularly visit this venue. There is always something to see. There is the main gallery of pictures on the perimeter with regular exhibitions in the centre. I think the exhibitions often show the work of local and of amateur artists. The general standard of art, crafts and sculpture is very good and really interesting. It is very diverse.
The venue is free. Perhaps a donation box or a token entry fee should be in place to raise funds to enable to keep this valuable asset going.

The core exhibition was donated by Sir Frederick Gibberd, the architect of the New Town, although quite small it features his friends and contemporises from the time the New Town was born (1950's), some now famous, add to that regular travelling high status exhibitions and you get a delicious piquant taste of recent art in a bite sized portion. Opening hours are limited so check in advance. Situated in Harlow Civic Centre its a gallery full stop however there are many cafes and other food outlets nearby.

Exhibits are changed frequently & none are ever the same. Previously theatre designs from V&A museum-without the expense/hassle of going to London. This week fantastic portraits. Regular kids activities. Next Saturday portrait artist will be painting from a live model and anyone can join in and create their own masterpiece. Friendly/knowledgeable staff & volunteers-don't forget to quiz them on the Moore, Rodin & Rubinstein works of art dotted all over Harlow. Recommend especially on a wet day! Check for opening times at weekend & for special events. Open during working hours of Civic Centre in the week.
