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 planned for August 2017 at Stamford Arts Centre, and a return to the Cathedral in summer 2018.
