Leading artists come together for two-year art project on the landscape of North East Lincolnshire


The coastal landscape of North East Lincolnshire is explored in a major new series of exhibitions and events to be shown over two years starting on 24th April 2013 with a show at the Abbey Walk Gallery in Grimsby. The ambitious project masterminded by artist-curator Linda Ingham shows work by some of the UK's most experimental landscape artists and includes works on loan from The Arts Council Collection - the first time that this collection has been accessed in the region. The project includes: ӢThe remarkable camera-less photography of Susan Derges who has recently shown in the Shadow Catchers exhibition the Victoria & Albert Museum. Ӣ A joint visual and verbal arts exhibit by artist Judith Tucker and poet Harriet Tarlo who been have been commissioned to create a series of drawings, paintings and poetry which express their responses to a particular stretch of the coastline between Cleethorpes and Tetney. Ӣ Cabinets of Curiosity by David Walker Barker that contain artefacts and objects literally excavated from the earth, accompanied by rich and detailed mixedmedia paintings. Ӣ Paintings and drawings by David Ainley that explore the relationship between people and landscape and take inspiration from the disused mines in Derbyshire. Ӣ Richly impastoed canvases depicting the Thames Estuary by George Rowlett who began his career at Grimsby Arts College before going on to the Royal Academy. Ӣ Drawn and mixed-media studies by artist-curator Linda Ingham that focus on self-portraiture in landscape and her concerns about the coastal landscape of her home in Cleethorpes.
