BAWDEN AT HOME
The Fry Art Gallery will, unusually, be dedicating its full season in 2018 across the whole gallery to one important exhibition. Edward Bawden CBE RA was educated at Friends' School Saffron Walden, and spent his last 19 years living in the town at Park Lane. He is recognized as one of Britain's foremost artists and designers of the twentieth century, and this exhibition will include over 200 artworks and other items, many of which have either not been seen before or not displayed in recent years. The exhibition will also form part of the Royal Academy's 250th anniversary celebrations.
Edward Bawden was greatly supportive of The Fry Art Gallery in its early days, and also a very generous donor. There will be an accompanying programme of events throughout the season.
