Lincolnshire Asylums: The Treatment of Mental Health Issues

Case Books for the Lawn Hospital, Lincoln, and St John’s Hospital, Bracebridge Heath (formerly the Lincolnshire County Lunatic Asylum) are now available to view on Lincs to the Past.

However, please note that volumes containing information less than 100 years old are not being displayed in accordance with the usual closure period for medical records.

To accompany the Case Books, this exhibition explores aspects of the history of mental health treatment in Lincolnshire.

The original microfilming of the Case Books, and subsequent digitisation from the films, was carried out with the aid of generous grants from the Wellcome Trust’s Research Resources for Medical grants scheme. We would also like to acknowledge the support of our activities by the Lincolnshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, which is the successor body to both hospitals and delivers mental health services in the county.

OPEM exhibition at The Collection

28 January - 2 May 2017

Exhibition Opening Times: 10:00am - 4:00pm

OPEM 4 is the fourth biennial open exhibition hosted by The Collection and Usher Gallery, and will showcase the work of local and regional artists who were chosen by a pair of industry experts (writer/curator Elinor Morgan and artist Brian Griffiths) based on the quality and originality of their work. Hundreds of artists from around Lincolnshire, Yorkshire, Cambridgeshire and more entered into the competition, hoping to have their work featured centre-stage at a professional art exhibition.

The winning artists are:

• Reece Straw

• Jake Kent

• Stephanie Douet

• Jake Moore

• Selina Mosinski

• Matthew Chesney

• Ellen Brady

• Colette Griffin

This will be the first time some of these artists have exhibited with a professional institution. By winning the competition these artists will each receive money and supplies to fund the creation of an all-new original piece of work for this particular show. Other prizes include a £3000 purchasing/commissioning prize which has been sponsored by the Heslam Trust, while another artist will receive their own solo exhibition in The Usher Gallery.
