Sculpture at Parndon Mill


Sculpture by Gerda Rubinstein

10th August - 17th September

This exhibition celebrates the 100th in The Gallery and Harlow’s 70th birthday. INSIGHT and OBSERVATION presents bronze and bronze resin sculpture by Gerda Rubinstein. Gerda is well known in Harlow, having been “discovered” in the sixties by Sir Frederick and Pat Gibberd who encouraged the Harlow Arts Trust to commission sculptures for the town’s collection. They also purchased several pieces for the Gibberd Garden. Gerda's sculptures are very popular in Harlow. They are familiar, well appreciated and many inspire real affection. This is an exhibition not to be missed.

Upstairs Gallery Berkhamsted

Tuesday 8 - Saturday 26 August

Architectural model maker, sculptor and pioneer abstract photographer. Victor was born in 1918 in Stryj, a town in S.E. Poland which is now part of the Ukraine. He had a long standing interest in photography – his photograph of the Egyptian Pyramids taken while training in the 1st School of Tank Officers was Victor’s first published photo.

His interest alongside general photography was in experimental new techniques and abstract forms. In particular he explored the new technique of physiographs. Victor combined images of objects, animals and people into abstract designs. He considered some of these the most difficult and complicated to make and was immensely proud of them.The gallery is showing a collection of his fascinating photographs, plus some sculptural pieces. His wife will be joining us in the gallery on Saturday 12 August at midday to talk about the background to his work.
