The diverse background of the groups means that they work in a wide range of different media, in lively and original ways. However they all have a passion to create and to share their vision. The groups will be holding ‘Meet the Artists’ afternoons on Sunday the 18th and 25th of January and Sunday 1st February, which will give visitors the chance to talk about the work and find out how they can get involved.

Art on the Map

Tuesday 3rd – Sunday 15th February 2015


‘Projections’ are communications that rely on vision and the works exhibited here are creations that are a visual or tangible rendering of something projecting from the artist’s own hidden desires and impulses; works that best sum up the artist who made them.

East Coast 7

Tuesday 3rd – Sunday 15th March 2015

Time, Tide and Beyond

We are a group of seven, dedicated, postgraduate fine artists rooted in the east coast region. We are bound by a common goal – to bring our unique surroundings to life through a variety of approaches.

One of our main strengths is that we work across a range of disciplines, both two and three dimensional. We use the tools and techniques of painting, drawing, photography, sculpture and printmaking to respond to the nuances of our particular area and to look beyond the visible.

Our vision is to support each other in the continuing development of our own art practice and to encourage the public’s engagement with art.

‘echoes in oil’

“My love for oil painting began at university.  While learning to paint, I was able to study the medium through the techniques of the world’s greatest artists.  I have been exploring its potential ever since.

From Lava & Sea by Julia Law Sundown Man & Dog 'echoes in oil' From Alit by Julia Law

As a student, I was encouraged to explore abstract and conceptual art and to search for something new.  I don’t consider myself a ‘landscape artist’ and would prefer not to be assigned any label.   I draw inspiration from the bounty of life.  It might come from the colour of leaves against a blue sky or, just as easily, from a facial expression, the mood of a stormy day or the sun shimmering on the sea.  I use sketches and photographs to develop the composition.  I then explore style and technique; this continues throughout the development of the painting and eventually an image evolves that I hope will be interesting, stimulating and visually pleasing.”

John and Pam Pickering

Tuesday 9th December – Sunday 21st December

‘The Power of Two’

Following their successful exhibition at Lincoln’s “Gallery at St.Martin’s” in the summer, John and Pam will be showing a greatly expanded set of work for the first time at the Sam Scorer Gallery.

John, a highly regarded painter previously established in the North of England, (now Lincoln based), produces images in a powerful graphic style, which challenge accepted perceptions of the watercolour genre.

His subjects range from highly stylised landscapes, to whimsical animal illustrations, often with a vintage feel – and a quirky humour!


Pam, well known for her life-long career as a textile practitioner, now creates exciting soft sculpture figures, rich in texture and attitude, alongside a range of decorative textile panels and exquisite jewellery.

They are a formidable duo, whose work sparks off each other – totally different but totally connected – “The Power of Two”

Graham Underhill

Tuesday 11th November – Sunday 23rd November 2014

Here, There and the Elsewhere        -  Lincoln  -

Here, There and the Elsewhere is a touring project supported by Arts Council England and Lincolnshire County Council. It explores space, time and the ways in which memory and anticipation influence the perception of place. The themes are treated in a general way and also in ways directly related to the five places on the tour.

Graham Underhill

The artist, Graham Underhill, made research visits to Lincoln on four separate occasions, making drawings, taking photographs and recording video. As an infrequent visitor he came to the city with an innocent eye and recorded images purely for their visual interest. In addition to visual impressions, written records of the incidents and sounds of everyday life were made for inclusion in the finished works.

Lincoln 22,29-08-13 (s)    From Moment To Moment (detail 1)    Lincoln Colour Study

Children from Monk’s Abbey Primary School and a senior resident of the city collaborated in the making of a video piece, providing their thoughts and memories for the sound track, bringing additional layers of memory, anticipation, imagination and meaning to the completed film.

To enrich the exhibition in Lincoln, the artist invites visitors to contribute their own memories and visual impressions of the city. What visual aspects of Lincoln are gone but not forgotten? What visual images are the highlights of the city? What thoughts of the past do the street names conjure up? What changes will the future bring? Thoughts can be added by posting them in writing at the exhibition, or by submitting them through the Lincoln pages of the project website:-

Opening daily 10am – 4pm
