The Gibberd Gallery is a purpose-built contemporary exhibition space in the centre of Harlow on the mezzanine floor of the Civic Centre. It is home to an important collection of British watercolours which was donated to the town by Sir Frederick Gibberd in 1984. We also run an exciting programme of special exhibitions featuring a lively mix of local and national artists attracting a broad audience.
Each year there is a 3D focus within the programme, reflecting Harlow's status as a sculpture town and drawing attention to its significant sculpture collection. Activities often accompany shows, including talks, demonstrations and workshops. The gallery is also available to hire for events and small exhibitions for a small fee. Please enquire via email or phone.
The Gibberd Gallery is run by the Harlow Art Trust, a charity formed in 1953 which also commissions and purchases sculpture for the town. The Friends of Harlow Sculpture and Gibberd Gallery help with fundraising and run events, talks and trips for a small yearly subscription.
