Art - Ebb and Flow
24th October until 29th November - Barton on Humber, DN18 5JT
Saturday 24th October – Thursday 29th November,
In January 2011 three artists, Lynn Baker (glassmaker), Soo Durham (ceramicist) and Bob Armstrong (painter), began a walk along the south bank of the Humber determined to experience the river and its moods in all seasons. Starting at Tetney Lock in pouring rain and finishing at Trent Falls in brilliant sunshine the walk was broken up into thirteen stages over a period of 18 months.
Ebb and Flow is the culmination of three entirely different responses to the walk using glass, clay and paint but all three have captured the essence of The Humber. At The Ropewalk. Tel: 01652 660380.

Unearthed – An exhibition of mixed media paintings, ceramics and jewellery by Hilary Angle and Barbara Wood at The Ropewalk. Hilary is an abstract artist concentrating on surface and texture, creating layers of mixed media, sanded and glazed to produce a dense rich surface and Barbara’s ceramic work examines eroded and neglected surfaces, particularly using saggar firing to evoke a distressed finish on a smooth, burnished form.

Talks - A Dickens of a Christmas
29th November - Lincoln
International Art Historian and lecturer Tim Stimson will be in Lincoln to launch a new series of talks and workshops – beginning with ‘A Dickens of a Christmas’ at the Old Palace, Lincoln. Tim provides similar events throughout the UK, Scandinavia and Australia for organisations such as Cambridge University and the National Association of Decorative and Fine Arts Societies (NADFAS). “In this lecture we will invoke the authentic Spirit of Christmas,” says Tim. “Still for most people the best way to celebrate this grand old institution is the traditional way; turkey dinner, presents under the tree… yet this tradition is in fact, a recent one, for the Christmas we celebrate is largely Victorian. The one person most responsible for its new popularity was Charles Dickens – and in this half-day workshop we shall be exploring the links between our modern ideas of the Christmas tradition and its Victorian context by looking closely at some of the marvellous images from those days.” Full details are available on Tim’s website www.timstimsonarts.co.uk
