Surviving Christmas Shopping This Year
We all know how stressful this time of year can be. Finding the right gifts at the right price can be an agonising process, one which we face many times over in the run up to Christmas. But fear not, there is always help at hand if you know where to look. This is why we are joining in with the Black Friday spirit and offering 20% off a wide range of fantastic contemporary art. The sale starts today and will run all the way to 6pm Sunday so you all have a chance to drop in and find a unique Christmas gift for someone special. No midnight battles through crowds here thank you very much, this is the Bailgate!
The sale includes work from huge names like Bob Barker, Louis Sidoli, Kealey Farmer, Rob Ford, Kate Wyatt, Alex Jawdokimov and many more. Just make your way to the back room in the gallery and look for this sign.
It's not all about Black Friday though. If you want a more festive shopping experience you won't find better than the Lincoln Christmas Market!
Running from Thursday 4th to Sunday 7th of December, the Lincoln Christmas Market boasts almost 300 stalls of everything from the traditional to the weird and wonderful all nestled around Lincoln's beautiful Cathedral and Castle. As anyone who has been will tell you it's a fantastic day or indeed night out, with great gift ideas, international food stalls, rides and more mulled wine than you can shake a mistletoe branch at. We will be open from 9am till 10pm every day of the market to soak up the wonderful atmosphere and give people a slightly more tranquil haven from the bustle of the crowds. Come by for the look at some beautiful art, fabulous gifts and even a glass of mulled wine and mince pie.
We'd all like to thank local star Edward Waite and every art lover who dropped by the gallery on Saturday 15th of November to see Edward's latest exhibition and make the event such a joy to be part of. Edward Waite kick started our Visiting Artists program all the way back in July 2013. We were delighted to have him back in a local gallery, fresh from his travels with his unique perspective on London, Paris, New York, Sydney and even The Taj Mahal in Agra. Yet again Edward charmed us all and gave us a fantastic insight to his process with some live painting. The art world will certainly be seeing a lot more of Edward and we hope to have him back on our Visiting Artists events in the future, even more well traveled and inspired to blow us all away yet again.
