Visitors to Carre gallery are in for a treat when they visit this year’s annual Summer Show. The work on display is high-quality and features both traditional and contemporary styles.

There are almost sixty exhibits created by twenty-five Lincolnshire artists. Many different media have been employed by the artists; traditional paints such as oil, acrylic and watercolour as well as mixed media, acrylic ink, pastel, pen, silk painting, and scraper board. The exhibition also contains photography, grogged stoneware and glazed stoneware.  Subjects include traditional landscapes – including local Lincolnshire scenes, architecture, animal and pet portraits, boats, floral, and abstract. Almost all of the work is for sale and prices range from £45 to £800.

The prize winners will be announced at the private view on Thursday 14 July and the results published on this blog shortly afterwards.  All exhibitors are invited and encouraged to attend – it could be you receiving a prize.

Gallery visitors can vote for their favourite exhibit using the slips and voting box provided.  The People’s Choice will be announced at the end of the exhibition.  Come and see. You will be inspired.
