Final preparations are being made for this year’s Sleaford Art Event.

The annual showcase of local artistic talent, both professional and amateur, is taking place at The Carre Gallery, in Carre Street, Sleaford, from this Monday to Saturday, April 9.

Run by volunteers, it has been going now for more than 15 years and has become part of the cultural calendar in Sleaford.

The Art Event Challenge - which forms part of the event - takes place this Monday.

This will see a figure or still life set up for any artist to paint between 10.30am and 12.30pm.

The paintings will then be put on display and judged by visitors. The most popular will receive a prize at the end of the event.

A prize and trophy will also be presented for the ‘Best in Show’, as voted for by the visitors.
