The Lincolnshire artists’ Open Studios scheme, Art on the Map, has undergone a transformation this year. It’s been triumphantly adapting to funding problems by raising its game, staging a series of exhibitions and events all over the county – Louth, Fotherby, Lincoln, Hackthorn, Grantham….lots in the pipeline.
All this in addition to the usual Open Studios which are now being organised in cluster groups, to allow more people to visit more studios – and artists to visit each other. The new, beautifully produced brochure will be out any minute! Look out for it in the usual places, including libraries and tourist offices. There will be autumn, Christmas and spring events.
