Barcelona Harbour - Barbara Melling

Visit Gunby's Orchard Gallery from 30 April to 30 May for an exhibition by artists from Lincolnshire art collective 'Art on the Map'.

Art on the map is a small group of 25 talented Lincolnshire artists who embrace and enjoy the creation of a wide variety of art and craft objects. Their Spring Variety Show provides a fabulous opportunity to see and appreciate the wide range of artistic talents of the group and perhaps purchase a unique painting, craft object or sculpture professionally created using a variety  of different artistic mediums by this interesting selection of Lincolnshire artists

Art on the Map Exhibition Group is a collective of high quality artists and craft-makers which has evolved from the Lincolnshire Open Studios scheme, started back in 1999, when artists and craft-makers from across the county came together to put their studios ‘on the map’. Over the years a wide range of artists were part of the scheme and not only opened their studios to the public, but also came together for special exhibitions. The Open Studios scheme transformed into an Exhibiting Group in 2016 although it is still possible to visit members’ studios and participate in workshops by appointment.

The members continue to exhibit together around the county with a very successful exhibition in the Chapter House at the Lincolnshire Cathedral in summer 2016, a further exhibition in August 2017 at Stamford Arts Centre, and a return to the Cathedral in summer 2018.
