Christmas orders for 2013
October has landed and so the count down to Christmas has begun. We find the madness of christmas always rolls around early, with offers in supermarkets and street lights up as soon as we see the back of Halloween.
However, one time where forward planning doesn’t go amiss is Christmas presents and especially if your heart is set on art. The Little Red Gallery is on a mission to make sure everyone gets their perfect gift this year.
If you are thinking of getting a loved one a piece of contemporary art this christmas we have the perfect gifts and even if there is nothing on our walls that quite hits the spot we can source any specific pieces if requested.
Just to be sure no one is disappointed 25th of december we thought it best to give a quick run down of the timings of deliveries.
~Any pictures in the gallery can be picked up on day of purchase.
~Any pictures purchased can be delivered within 3 to 5 days .
~Any requests for art not currently in stock can take 2 to 4 weeks to arrive in the gallery.
~Any requests for reframing of existing work can take up to 2 weeks.
~Any specific commissions can take 5 to 6 weeks for painting, framing and delivery.
~Any purchases can be stored in the gallery and collected at your leisure, help stop friends and family sneaking presents early.
~We are happy to send work internationally but of course this offers further time constraints. Last dates for DHL deliveries to Germany are 17th of December, Europe is 16th of December, North America is 11th of December and the rest of the world by 9th of December.
We will be opening late throughout October, November and December for anyone who wants a chance to pick up a gift in the week but can’t get over to the Bail by 6pm.
Antiques Fair on Castle Square- Thanks!
Big thanks to everyone who came out last Sunday to make Lincoln’s Castle Square Antiques Fair one of the best of the year.
Yet again The Little Red Gallery had a great day meeting you all, enjoying the sunshine (while it lasts…) and basking in the beauty of the Bailgate.
We can’t wait for Spring to roll round so we can get out there again but plenty of fun to keep us going over Winter. Including October’s Rock n Roll night, Kealey Farmer dropping into the gallery with her new collection in November and of course the legendary Lincoln Christmas Market.
Antiques Fair on Castle Square
Residents and regulars of the Bail will no doubt be aware of the fantastic art, antiques and curiosities market held in Castle Square one Sunday a month organised by Unique Auctions. The Little Red Gallery has really enjoyed the events this year, Hazel praising it as the Portobello Market of Lincolnshire. We were thrilled to have a stall at the last market and will be there this Sunday too.
Sadly due the cold winds of winter approaching Sunday’s market will be the last of the year. The Antiques Fair will be back in full force in the Spring but before that long wait we would like to invite all of you to come give this wonderful gathering a good send off.
See you all Sunday!

Edward Waite at The Little Red Gallery
The Little Red Gallery is proud to announce an afternoon with Edward Waite
We are launching our visiting artists programme with wonderful local talent Edward Waite. The best way to bridge the gap between artists and art lovers and give people a glimpse into artist’s creative process is to bring both into the gallery together.
Edward has an iconic style that has all enthralled; his vibrant technique allows us to appreciate his unique perceptions of architecture in very fresh and stylish way. Having had the pleasure of displaying Edwards fantastic portrayals of famous landmarks such as Piccadilly Circus and Time Square we were eager to see how this local talent saw and interpreted some of the awe inspiring landmarks in our area. Being a Lincolnshire lad it is no surprise that his recently paintings of Lincoln Cathedral have been fantastic fresh takes on a subject we all know and love, generating massive public interest and positive feedback.
We will be stocking our front room floor to ceiling with Edward’s work both old and new. The man himself will also be working on two paintings live so join us at 8 Bailgate Lincoln, LN1 3AE, on Saturday 20th July between 3 and 5 o’clock to join in the fun and get a rare look at art as it take shape in front of your eyes.
