The talent of local artists and the stories of our area, past, present, and future will form the heart of a new exhibition at the Grimsby Fishing Heritage Centre.
Pride of Grimsby showcases some of the best contemporary artwork from North East Lincolnshire and celebrates the wealth of talented artists in the local area.
Each artwork represents the artist’s connection with the local area, and the stories which connect them to the place they call home. These stores include personal experiences, family and community, heritage, environment, and local industry past and present.
Louise Bowen, Collections Officer for Grimsby Fishing Heritage Centre said: “This exhibition is about celebrating the North East Lincolnshire and the creative talent the area has produced. We are proud to bring this selection of artists to our visitors.”
You can vote for your favourite artwork using the voting cards in the gallery. There is a prize of £250 for the artist who wins the Judges Choice Award. An additional prize of £250 will be awarded for the artist who wins the Visitor’s Choice Award, with an additional £150 for second place and £50 for third place.
The exhibition is free and opens to the public at 1pm on Saturday 9 April. The exhibition runs in the Muriel Barker Gallery until 15 May 2022 and is open every day except Mondays, from 10am to 4pm.
