Free Range Artists

Free Range Artists


At the LBT we think it's important that ideas and creativity have the space to grow, and to ensure the very best we like to share...


Free Range Artists is your chance to find visual artists just "doing what they do", happy in the knowledge that you're watching, curious or ask questions... if you're very lucky they may show you how they do it, or even let you have a go!


All our Free Range Artists have a part to play in Visual Arts and or Exhibitions at the Lawrence Batley Theatre, they may be Artists in Residence (past, present or future), Exhibitors or our Artcard Artists.
