Bawden & Ravilious

Early April sees the re-opening of the Fry Art Gallery in Saffron Walden.

The first show of the year, “In the Spirit of Edward Bawden & Eric Ravilious”, features work by artists – some emerging and others already established in their fields – who acknowledge the influence that either Ravilious or Bawden have had on their work.

The artists taking part in the exhibition are Chris Brown, Jeff Fisher (see Edward's Brain, right), David Gentleman, Fernando Feijoo, Alan Powers, Colin Wilkin, Andrew Kulman, John Lawrence, Mark Hearld, Jonathan Gibbs, Jonny Hannah, Ian Beck and Ronald Maddox.

The Fry Art Gallery houses a collection of work all loosely connect by the nearby village of Great Bardfield where an artistic community flourished either side of the second world war. Well worth a visit.
