The Edward Bawden exhibition was excellent and I believe it runs until October. It is a small gallery but there was an extensive display of his work. There were numerous books, ceramics, postcards for sale. If you're a fan of Bawden, this is a super...More

I called in specifically to view the current Bawden exhibition, never having been to this gallery previously, and I was not disappointed. The gallery is small but 'busy', clean, organised and well laid out. We were greeted by attentive and very friendly volunteers who were...More

With family and friends I visited The Fry Art Gallery today to see the Bawden at Home exhibition (on until October 2018). If you're in Saffron Walden and you like art, just GO! It's a sumptuous collection of pictures with lots of other interesting tit-bits...More

Not much, really. Just do your homework to check opening times, is the only obvious contribution I can make. Ravilious, Bawden, Rowntree, special exhibitions, artfully concealed down a snicket and delightfully curated and attended by volunteers. Cards and books to buy in this slightly eccentrically...More

Always interesting items on display, local and not so, but a lovely place in a beautiful town. Worth a visit.

Tucked away in Saffron Walden is the Fry Gallery. It's something from the past and all the more delightful for it. Gems on display. Run entirely by volunteers, we were told, by two of the most welcoming volunteers you could hope to meet... Worth discovering....More

This art collection is one of the best outside London not in a big city. It is varied, full of surprises, very welcoming and free!

Was astounded to walk in and find Ravilious hanging on the walls surrounded by other amazing artists. There is a permanent collection and a temporary exhibition. Staff very welcoming.
