I was privileged to be able to attend the private view of the Harlow Open last night in the Gibberd Gallery at Harlow Civic Centre.
The Harlow Open is a chance for local artists to enter pieces of work for display, only the best works make it, and I have to say the standard was very high this year.
There were a range of artistic styles on display both in paint and textile work.
The Open also gives some of these budding artists a chance to sell some of their work, although some works are not up for sale, there were many at very reasonable prices.
Wandering the gallery I was struck once again by just how much talent there is in Harlow.
If you get a chance to pop into the Gallery in the next few weeks, please do – it will be well worth your while.
