Focal Point Gallery

The Forum Southend-on-Sea Address: Elmer Ave, Southend-on-Sea SS1 1NB Phone: 01702 534108

Focal Point Gallery is a contemporary visual arts organisation based in South Essex at the ground floor of Southend’s Central Library, The Forum. Founded in 1990, the gallery promotes and commissions major solo exhibitions, group and thematic shows which reflect and respond to the unique context and heritage of Southend-on-Sea and the county of Essex.

The gallery has multiple outputs across the town including a year-round programme of high-quality exhibitions, events, publications, projects and temporary public artworks. Working with a diverse range of artists at all stages of their career, the gallery seeks to provide residents and visitors the opportunity to experience, participate and learn about challenging and ambitious examples of U.K. and international contemporary art.

As a key focus of our output, Focal Point Gallery’s learning programme aims to engage people of all ages in current debates around contemporary art, and looks to extend and develop new audiences. We consider the philosophies and working methods of the artists in our exhibitions programme as the starting point for inspiration, aspiration and discussion in the community. On this basis, the gallery seeks to proactively engage with a wide range of local community groups, schools, young people and children.

Aubrey Art Gallery

Post Office, High St, Great Dunmow, Essex CM6 1AW This gallery has now closed it doors

A great gallery of local East Anglian artists. Very nice to see female artists being promoted. So many techniques used in various styles. Pity the location is behind the post office in Dunmow so not easily visible from the main road.

The Aubrey Art Gallery is now closed.

It is with deep regret that the gallery will be completely closing from 31st. August and the web site ending on 24th. August. We have enjoyed ten wonderful years of running the gallery – amazing pictures, some fascinating conversations , meeting such diverse and interesting people – but the time seems right for this decision . Thank you for your support and interest in the gallery. Wishing you all the very best In the future. Elizabeth Davies.

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.
