This wepbage gives a provisional outline for the exhibition.
It is a working document, expected to change as planning proceeds. Not all the artworks and ideas presented here will necessarily be included in the exhibition and other artworks and ideas are likely to be added.
We look at Lincolnshire's coastal landscape, past, present and future.
This exhibition emerges 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.
If you feel inspired by this project you are invited to offer your art for the exhibition. Ideas and suggestions are very welcome, there is nothing yet set in stone. Please send us your proposals.

Created over a six month period the piece has two dimensions:
a) A series of Polaroid images taken over a period of six months with each image dated.
b) Images of the Polaroids re- shot with 35mm camera and then projected onto ceramic spheres using photo emulsions.
Colour on the spheres was used to emphasise the days of the week and the spherical worlds in which we live.
The piece reflects on how we live out our lives, how things happen outside our every day existence which we have no control over and emphasises our own vulnerable existence of how we live out our lives yet, we are metaphorically decaying.

These images of Lincolnshire's shoreline birds are painted on clear mouth-blown glass, kiln-fired to fuse the pigment permanently into the glass. They are just an inch or two across.
The materials and techniques employed are similar to those available to the medieval glass artists and if cared for, could last centuries. a symbol of hope for the future, standing in opposition to the throw-away scociety, they are small treasures for future generations.
