visual arts at the LBT

Whether it’s working with artists to celebrate the local visual arts scene or presenting national exhibitions, the LBT’s exhibition programme is fresh, dynamic and ever-surprising.

 

With a changing programme of exhibitions throughout the year, we add to the mix of visual arts offered throughout the area. No matter if you like figurative or abstract painting, sculpture or installation art, every time you visit there will be something exciting, inspiring and thought-provoking for you to see.

 

The LBT offers studio space to local artists so they can develop their work in a creative and inspiring environment. Our six current artists in residence are Barbara Hellowell, Freyja Boycott-Garnett, Gareth Savage, Julija Cukerman and Maggie O'Keeffe. Our artists have an open door policy, pop in to their studio space any time and they’ll be more than happy to show you their current work in progress.

WHO ARE THEY?

 

On a regular basis we try to capture the inside working of artist's minds, by asking them these five questions.


1) When did you start your creative journey?

2) Why do you create?

3) Which part of the creative process do you enjoy most?

4) What inspires you?

5) Where can we find out more?

 

We share these videos on our Facebook page, and they are fascinating... check them out
