Artistic Opportunities

Boardwalk Cafe, Whisby Nature Park

In this section we will list all available performing and visual arts opportunities from artsNK. We will also feature relevant selected opportunities from our partners and selected organisations within Lincolnshire and beyond.

Exhibition Opportunity

At the Boardwalk Bistro Gallery, Whisby Nature Park

We have a space in the exhibition programme over August and September for an artist, artist collaboration or artist group living or working in Lincolnshire.  Artists are invited to send in a proposal, which should include a brief description of existing artworks available for the exhibition and a selection of images.

Artworks can be made of any media, but they must be 2-D and be able to be fixed to the wall, on display in a busy cafe environment. There are 4 gallery boards, measuring 8 ft x 4 ft.

We’d prefer artworks to be linked to the natural world in some way – though this is a flexible brief and we are open to how this might be interpreted (eg could be landscape, wildlife, coastal, environmental). 

We have a budget of £250 to support the presentation/framing/hanging of the exhibition, and staff from artsNK will curate and install the artwork.


10am on Monday 10 July Proposals submitted to artsNK
Friday 14 July Selected artist/s informed
Week beginning 24 July (date to be agreed with artsNK) Artworks installed at Whisby

Please email with a selection of images and a covering letter explaining who you are and describing the work.  Please confirm that you are able to meet the needs of this tight timescale and that the work will be framed (if applicable) and ready to be installed in the week beginning 24 July.
