Open daily 10am to 4pm Thursday 15th November to Sunday 25th November 2018

Admission Free

Our art exhibitions emerge from the conceptual basis of Marcus Vergette's Time and Tide Bells, stimulating conversations about human relationships with the sea, past, present and future, mindful of the global warming and the social stresses that climate change and sea level rise may bring.

This exhibition is inspired by the landscape and biodiversity of the Lincolnshire coast, its beaches, saltmarsh and dune systems, tracing its development through time, from the last Ice Age into the distant future when global warming and sea level rise will have affected the region.

Works have been commissioned that might raise awareness and stimulate conversations about the coastal landscape. The artists have been invited to produce writing that goes beyond the traditional artist's statement, engaging the audience with how their work relates to the themes of the exhibition. Their work, in image and word, is published in 'By the Sea', a 76-page full colour book. Also included is information about the Time and Tide Bell and an essay, 'Liminal' by Biff Vernon, introducung the development of Lincolnshire's coastal landscape and its future in a warming world with rising seas.

By the Sea is available for £5 postage free. To get your copy:
