Artists give their views on Lincolnshire’s best bits

Inspiring Lincolnshire: Two artists holding workshops to depict the best of Lincolnshire and help others discover overlooked beauties.

A special art event, which is touring Lincolnshire, will stop in Lincoln this month to depict all that is wonderful about the county from an outsider’s perspective.

The Something Wonderful event sees artists Raisin and Willow (Jonathan Raisin and Elizabeth Willow) travel around the county’s market towns, fenland and Lincoln itself to discover Lincolnshire’s best bits.

Best bits will even include overlooked or forgotten places and objects, and visiting the likes of cafes and charity shops, bridges and alleyways for inspiration.

They will be hosting a number of free events, activities, exhibits, performances and workshops at the Usher Art Gallery, detailing their discoveries.

Collections access assistant at The Collection Maggie Warren said: “We’re looking forward to welcoming Raisin and Willow to Lincoln, and encouraging people of all ages to come along and discover Something Wonderful.

“Raisin and Willow will be working their magic for visitors to the Usher Gallery by introducing some tiny objects collected on their travels, and will leave behind a gallery trail for younger visitors.

“The Usher Gallery’s resident group of print-makers are also exhibiting work inspired by the project from November 5 to 28.”

Activities include the Interventions and Children’s Art Trail, which runs between November 5 and 18, where children can pick up a map of Lincoln and spot great things about the city as well as their own observations.

There is also a special walking talk on November 7, called Lines of Desire, starting at the LPAC and going around Brayford Pool, lead by Raisin and Willow.
