Have your say

Grab your last chance to see amazing works of art on show at Spalding’s South Holland Centre.

The 13th South Holland Open Arts Exhibition opens from 10am-4pm today and from 10am-5pm on Thursday, the final day.

Admission is free and you can join a public vote to decide the people’s favourite.

Some of South Holland’s best known artists, including Norman Rossiter and Mo Teeuw, have exhibits among the 70-plus pieces of art.

Work includes a range of media such as 3D, photography/digital, oil, pencil, pastel, watercolour and acrylic.

The exhibits are the best out of a total submission of 200 entries from South Holland, Lincolnshire, Norfolk, Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire, Cambridgeshire and Norfolk.

Some of the works are for sale so you could bag an original for your home as well as enjoy a tour of the exhibition.

The artists have been inspired by many subjects, including some of South Holland’s scenes such as David Bealby’s “Bridge on the Risegate Eau”, Mo Teeuw’s “Flooded Fields, Moulton” and Karen Green’s “Crowland Abbey”.

Nick Worth, South Holland District Council’s porfolio holder for the arts and one of three judges, said the exhibition continues to be popular with artists and has become an annual fixture in the diary where everyone can celebrate art from the district and beyond.
