exhibition

@The White Cube Gallery, Harrow Arts Centre

We will have a special preview evening event on Monday 19th February.  from 6pm – 8pm

Please come along to celebrate the second of our celebration of art exhibitions and bring a friend.

What is A Celebration of Art about?

It is exactly that – a celebration of the art that is being created in Harrow and the surrounding areas by the creatives local to us.

Running from Monday 19th February until Monday 4th March this exhibition displays the talent of artists from all ages and areas.  The work is diverse and vibrant, very reflective of the Harrow community and it deserves to be celebrated.

Over 250,000 people live in Harrow.  There is a thriving community of artists, art groups and creative enterprises in the borough, but only one small facility offered as a free public space designated for displaying visual art exhibitions – the White Cube Gallery in Harrow Art Centre. 

The gallery was initially set up in 2012 with lottery funding by a group of artists in Harrow and it was saved from closure in 2022 by a group of artists in Harrow.  If we want to ensure that it stays as a designated art gallery, we need to use it.  If we want to show that there is a need for a better facility for the hundreds of thousands of people in Harrow we need to fill it to bursting with the art that is already happening in and around Harrow. This exhibition is part of Harrow Open Studios’ aim, to celebrate visual art in Harrow, to show the people of Harrow that they are a creative force, to introduce them to the fact that they have a gallery they can use and to work towards a thriving public gallery in the future. 

Come and see what your neighbours have created and tell everybody about it.

@The White Cube Gallery, Harrow Arts Centre

Exhibition to run

13th February to 2nd March 2023

Harrow Arts Centre

The White Cube Gallery

171 Uxbridge Rd, Pinner HA5 4EA

The Gallery will be Open to the public between 10 am and 5pm weekdays.

What is A Celebration of Art about?

It is exactly that – a celebration of the art that is being created in Harrow by creative people living and working in Harrow.

Running from Monday 13th February until Thursday 2nd March this exhibition displays the talent of over 70 different artists from 8 years to 88 years old.  The work is diverse and vibrant, very reflective of Harrow people and it deserves to be celebrated.

Over 250,000 people live in Harrow.  There is a thriving community of artists, art groups and creative enterprises in the borough, but only one small facility offered as a free public space designated for displaying visual art exhibitions – the White Cube Gallery in Harrow Art Centre.  In 2022 it was decided to close this gallery space and repurpose it into an office.  There had been no consultation and the plans had been put in place without informing those artists and community groups who use the gallery.

When we heard about this Harrow Open Studio artists launched a campaign to save the gallery for its intended use.  The gallery was initially set up in 2012 with lottery funding by a group of artists in Harrow and it was saved from closure by a group of artists in Harrow.  If we want to ensure that it stays as a designated art gallery, we need to use it.  If we want to show that there is a need for a better facility for the hundreds of thousands of people in Harrow we need to fill it to bursting with the art that is already happening in Harrow. This exhibition is part of this campaign, to celebrate the gallery and the art in Harrow, to show the people of Harrow that they are a creative force, to introduce them to the fact that they have a gallery they can use and to work towards a better public gallery in the future.

Come and see what your neighbours have created and tell everybody about it.

Nicole explains her piece Covid Globe Human Touch: “During the Lockdown it became more and more apparent how important touch is to humans. The fact that we were unable to touch loved ones, shake hands with strangers, occupy the same close quarters with other humans, gave the importance of human touch sharp focus.

Clay is a medium that requires human touch to make forms, be it on the wheel or by modelling the clay with ones hands. It is the only medium that after it is fired is virtually indestructible and can retain the finger print of the creator through thousands of years so that another human can touch it.

Covid-19 removed our ability to touch each other, but my finger prints on this hand built globe and be touched by other humans across time and space, linking us together. Covid-19 has been created by the human touch on the earth and if we don’t accept our impact on our environment and make changes, we will turn the whole world into a place that will destroy us.
This globe was made in response to both these reflections on our situation. It was made as part of a community clay project I set up for the residents of my street, and displayed on the communal roundabout in the street with the clay pieces my neighbours made, which I had fired and glazed for them.”

For the first time, Harrow Open Studios has launched its annual event with a taster exhibition at West House, showcasing a selection of work over the Queen’s Jubilee weekend. The exhibition was officially opened by the new Mayor of Harrow, Cllr Nizam Ismai, who complimented the group on the range and quality of the work and praised the group for its awareness

The venue was West House – a lovely light venue which was renovated to celebrate the artist Heath Robinson. The gallery overlooks the Pinner Memorial Park. As you can see from these photos it was a lovely venue for our artwork.
