From Eric Ravilious To Grayson Perry

Fry Art Gallery, Saffron Walden


In 2015 we mark the 30th anniversary of the opening display of the North-West Essex Collection in the Fry Art Gallery. The collection now numbers well over 2000 items, including paintings, prints, ceramics, books, designs and many other objects produced by the diverse artists who have lived in and around the Essex village of Great Bardfield since the early 1930s.

Until the end of October 2015 the museum’s main gallery displays works by the ‘Bardfield Artists’ in broadly chronological order, from the arrival of Edward Bawden and Eric Ravilious around 1930, through wartime, the resettlement after the war, the growth in the community of artists, and the emergence in the 1950s of Great Bardfield as a significant centre for British art and design.
