A tree-themed exhibition is on view in a new gallery sitting atop the Wolds.
More than 80 pieces of work from 11 local artists, a textile artist, photographer and three furniture designers feature at the Bricktree Gallery, an innovative space built from scratch over the last four years in reclaimed, stone, brick and timber that combines a gallery space with stunning views.
“I had no idea what to expect when I requested submissions for our launch exhibition, so when these amazing pieces of furniture came forward it was the perfect opportunity to showcase them in our rough luxe barn while we fine tune the building before opening fully next year,” said gallery owner Sarah Lamballe, who also organised Market Rasen’s first ever arts & crafts festival Plank in February this year.
“A few of the local artists I’ve met through the Arts Council England project have submitted stunning new work, as well as ink, acrylic, oils and watercolours from incredibly talented artists right here in the Wolds villages and further afield in North Lincolnshire and the Yorkshire border.”
The exhibition is free to view from 10am to 4pm daily until Saturday, November 2 and all work is for sale.
There is also the chance to book in for a Tree of Life jewellery making craft session on Wednesday October 30, which costs £15 per person including light refreshments and all materials.
Bricktree Gallery at Jim’s Yard is tucked behind Wold View House Tearoom on Bully Hill Top, just outside Tealby.
The tea room will be open every day except Tuesday during the exhibition.
There is also the opportunity to see woodwork in progress, buy chainsaw carvings, hand carved wooden hearts and decorations, vintage benches that have been fully renovated using locally felled timber and you can even bring your chainsaw along for a free service by Lincolnshire Tree Services based at the neighbouring Jim’s Yard.
“We believe that the Wolds should be a vibrant, working environment and so the idea behind Jim’s Yard was to combine everything we do well to bring in new visitors to the area,” added Sarah.
“Everyone who has visited so far has been blown away by the space.”
