Our next Open Meeting is on Monday 21st November at the Bowling Club in Abbey Lane. The Fry Art Gallery – talk by Gordon Cummings. Doors open at 2:00 pm for a 2:30 pm start.
Recognised as an Accredited Museum by Arts Council England, The Fry Art Gallery displays work by artists of national significance who lived or worked in North West Essex during the twentieth century and after. Originally designed to house the art collection of Francis Gibson, a local businessman, it is now home to the North West Essex Collection, a set of more than 3,000 works by diverse, nationally important artists who have lived or worked in the area. The collection includes paintings, prints, books, artists’ scrapbooks, ceramics, wallpapers and decorative designs.
We hope you’ll come along for this interesting talk where you can also enjoy the usual refreshments, raffle and good company. Look forward to seeing you there.
