The Tudors in Lincolnshire

During the Tudor period Lincolnshire was one of the most isolated counties in England. Henry VIII famously referred to its inhabitants as “the commons of one shire and that one of the most brute and beastly of the whole realm”.

Although the activities have been designed to be used at Key Stages 2 and 3 they will also be of interest to anyone who wants to find out a little more about what life was like in 16th century Lincolnshire, about the political, religious and social changes that were taking place at that time, and about how these national changes were played out at the local level.

These resources and activities have been produced by Heritage Lincolnshire working in partnership with Lincolnshire County Council’s Historic Environment team, and with the assistance of The Collection in Lincoln and Caistor Yarborough School. The project was funded by a Renaissance East Midlands MuBu grant and Lincolnshire County Council.Each resource consists of an interactive activity and supporting downloadable resources.

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.
