The tiny gallery, measuring 1m x 1.8m, is housed upstairs with the Artist Studios in the stables building alongside the historic workings of the clock tower.
2015 will see this little space show its first ever mini exhibition curated by one of the resident artists. One piece of work will be selected from each of the Hylands Artists and displayed in the Clock Tower Gallery.
Each themed exhibition will last for about 6 weeks before another of the artists selects work of their choice.

Chappel GalleriesEdna Mirecka (Battye) opened Chappel Galleries on 16th May ’86. Later meeting Wladyslaw Mirecki, painter, it is one of the very few art galleries to claim a working artist as one of the proprietors. Set in the picturesque Colne Valley backing onto the River Colne it is an out of town gallery overlooking the romanesque 32 arch working Chappel Viaduct.

Drawn from the 20th & 21st century, Chappel Galleries sells work by professional artists, many with national reputations, also bringing to the attention of their public some who are younger or less well known. Contrary to current trends, they insist on showing artists who are grounded in the skill of painting, drawing and making of sculpture. They like to retain their identity by selling the work of artists from the region, including those who, although not living here, have regional connections.

Harwich Festival of Arts

Harwich Festival of the Arts – Historic Harwich and Dovercourt artworks are displayed in many buildings around the old town, complete with a huge public art installation generated by all of our young people. You will also find music, spoken word, dance and art melding seamlessly at the Harwich Festival.

Harwich Art Trail-The most northerly town in Essex, it is surrounded by water on three sides, and with regular ferries from Holland and Denmark it has a European atmosphere and a rich history. Alongside the Visual Arts the Harwich Festival promotes music, classical, experimental, folk and jazz, new film, poetry, contemporary dance and more, all taking place in a wide variety of venues – often rather unusual ones such as the LV18 Lightship moored at Harwich Quay.

Hadleigh Art Trail

This year’s Trail in September promises to be the most exciting and engaging yet, with something to inspire everyone. Over 30 artists will present their work and creative talents to the public in venues across Hadleigh, stretching from the Hadleigh Park and Salvation Army Hub Café to St. James the Less church…and beyond! Hadleigh Art Trail is proud of its community links with a range of art clubs and community arts organisations as well as individual artists – many of whom live, work or meet in Castle Point and are showcasing a diverse mix of fine art, photography, sculpture, poetry, music and more.

Hadleigh Art Trail is artist-led and community focussed. Started in 2011, Hadleigh Art Trail has become an annual community event popular with artists, local businesses, organisations, residents and visitors.
Our partner venue Hadleigh Old Fire Station and its multi-use community space takes centre stage again this year hosting an ‘All Trail’ exhibition featuring work from each Trail artist under one roof – open 10am – 5pm daily throughout the Trail.

Brentwood Art Trail

Brentwood Art Trail is part of Essex’s eighth Summer of Art, which showcases artists from across the county from June to September.

The Brentwood Art Trail has been running since 2009 and is a great way to enjoy the artwork of the Borough’s many talented artists. Visitors can see a variety of work that will be displayed in participating shops and businesses throughout Brentwood.

Artists apply to display up to 5 pieces of work in venues in and around the Borough.  Shops and businesses/organisations with public access areas have generously agreed to be venues – in essence, become mini art galleries for 15 days!

The Brentwood Art Trail will be widely publicised through leaflets, posters, banners, social media and news outlets, giving artists promotion to a larger audience and bringing footfall to participating venues. Brentford Art Trial Map PDF

There is no fee to take part in the Brentwood Art Trail, either as an artist or venue.

Weekend inSeptember Opening times vary for each artist, so please make sure you double check entries on the listings. If in doubt, or if you are travelling a long distance, we would advise you to contact the artist and confirm your visit. Please phone all artists who specify ‘by appointment only’ before visiting. Open studios aims to provide greater opportunity for the public to access the visual arts as well as promote the great wealth of local visual artists in Colchester and Tendring.
Colchester offers many walking and cycling art trails across the district and town centre. Why not discover some of the area’s beautiful landscapes whilst you’re visiting, or find out more about where you live, with some of our suggestions below?
The Painter’s Trail around the Dedham Vale, inspiration for John Constable, takes you through a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and uses a mixture of mainly quiet roads, cycle paths and well-surfaced tracks. The full circuit is about 69 miles and is designed to be completed in two to three days, but there is also plenty of scope for shorter rides. Be sure to take inspiration from the Haywain view at Flatford and fortify yourself with tea and cake in the many tea rooms in ‘Constable Country’.

Thomas Gainsborough The Blue BoyThomas Gainsborough (1727-88) was born in Sudbury and was baptized at the Independent Meeting-House in Friars Street on 14 May 1727, the fifth son and ninth child of John and Mary Gainsborough. He lived in Sudbury until around 1740 when, as a young teenager, he was sent to London to pursue a career as an artist. He returned to Sudbury in the spring of 1749 where he painted his celebrated Mr and Mrs Andrews (c.1750, National Gallery, London). His search for patronage and critical success led him to move to Ipswich around 1752 and subsequently to Bath and London, although he never lost the influence of his native town and county. ‘Nature was his teacher, and the woods of Suffolk his academy,’noted an obituary after his death in 1788.

Gainsboroughs HouseIn 1958 Gainsborough’s House Society was formed to purchase the house and establish it as a centre for Thomas Gainsborough. The Museum opened to the public in 1961 and has remained open for over 50 years. The beautiful garden is at the heart of Gainsborough’s House. It is maintained by a devoted body of volunteers who garden exclusively with plants that were available in Gainsborough’s lifetime.

The Gainsborough’s House shop stocks a wide range of cards, books and gifts alongside original prints and cards produced by members of our own Print Workshop.

Art Gallery

The Museum houses the city’s temporary art gallery. Regularly changing exhibitions mean works of art from the museum’s varied collections can be put on public view.
Pictures on display reflect Chelmsford’s rich artistic heritage. Many works in the collection are by 20th century artists from Chelmsford and Mid Essex, including the Great Bardfield Artists which includes Michael Rothenstein, Edward Bawden, Eric Ravilious and John Aldridge. Some of these also worked as illustrators and designers and the collection has work by their contemporary, Lynton Lamb, who lived near Chelmsford.
Also represented in the collection are works by John Nash, Campbell Archibald Mellon and Frederick Brown.

Pictures on display elsewhere in the Museum include:

  • Philip Reinagle’s view of Chelmsford’s Shire Hall, painted for its architect John Johnson in 1794.
  • A mid 19th century view of Chelmsford from Springfield Hill by Colkett records the new railway just before the expansion of the town.
    Chelmsford’s landscape is also well covered. Works include watercolours and drawings by Alfred Bennett-Bamford, whose prolific late 19th and early 20th century sketches record many buildings and views now vanished.
