The Fry Art Gallery

The Fry Art Gallery

The Fry Public Art Gallery was opened in 1987 and houses an impressive number of paintings, prints, illustrations, wallpapers and decorative designs by artists of the 20th century and the present day who have local connections and have made a significant contribution to their field. There is an emphasis on those who for a variety of reasons settled in Great Bardfield between the early thirties of the last century and the death in 1983 of John Aldridge RA who had lived in the village for fifty years.

Edward Bawden RA who, with his friend Eric Ravilious, discovered Bardfield a year before the arrival of Aldridge and dominated the scene for almost four decades, is represented by nearly 600 items. The Gallery has also acquired work by Ravilious and his wife Tirzah Garwood, and by those other artists who came to the village during the second world war – Michael Rothenstein RA, and his wife Duffy (now Duffy Ayers), Kenneth Rowntree, & George Chapman. The collection also includes prints and paintings by Bawden’s son Richard, and examples of the very varied work of artists who made their way to Bardfield in the 1950s – Marianne Straub, Audrey Cruddas, Sheila Robinson, Bernard Cheese and Walter Hoyle.

The Gallery was built in 1856 to house the collection of Francis Gibson, a local Quaker businessman, and the building passed by descent to the Fry family, from whom the Fry Art Gallery Society purchased it in 2015.

Maldon Art Club

Maldon Art Club (MAC) is a well established adult art group, providing a year long programme of art activities in Maldon.
MAC meet weekly on Tuesdays, from September to May at the Upper Plume School Dining Hall in Fambridge Road, Maldon, followed by an outdoor summer programme.

In addition to our regular meetings where members choose their own work and medium, an annual  programme of events is arranged. The events include visiting galleries and exhibitions, inviting professional artists to demonstrate their work or technique, holding outdoor meetings and exhibiting club member’s work.  The group also enjoys locally held social events.

Maldon Art Club has been active in the cultural life of Maldon since 1942. It started as one of the groups that were formed to support and continue cultural activities in towns and cities in what was the worst year of the war for people in this country. In addition to art, drama, choral and orchestral music groups were formed and after the war a camera club was added.
Money was provided by the Maldon Educational Settlement that was associated with the Essex Educational Committee. In the Moot Hall archives we found a financial statement from 1956 which records the Art Club as having an income of £1.11s.6d and the Art Club class 7 Guineas.

Like so many organizations, this Club owes its existence to the enthusiasm and commitment of its members.Maldon Art Club
