As Artists See It

Gibberd Gallery, Civic Centre, The Water Gardens, CM20 1WG

Thursday 9th April 2015 - Friday 15th May 2015

Art exhibitions on the theme of Jazz are virtually unknown in this country and Harlow Art Trust will be breaking new ground with this vibrant exhibition.

This show includes prints, oil painting, sculpture, digital artwork, and drawing each with a unique interpretation of Jazz from its African American origins to today's smooth jazz scene. Artworks include bold portraits of Jazz greats, musically inspired sculptures and paintings that evoke the feel of Jazz and the environment in which it thrived. Also on display are Jazz posters, records, programmes, autographed sketches and a saxaphone.

Selected artists from the region and one from Sweden have been invited to produce work especially for this exhibition which will be opened by Liz Lincoln, Jazz Festival organiser and national jazz from Southend and Westcliffe.
