A Sleaford-based mosaic group formed a little over a year ago is celebrating the first public exhibition of its work.

MosArt came together following the success of an artsNK project to create a mosiac for Sleaford Leisure Centre. The project saw hundreds of volunteers contribute to the installation, designed by Scottish artist Alan Potter.

The group’s first exhibition is entitled Scenes of Lincolnshire Life and aims to express the drama and serenity of the county’s landscape – from fertile fields and meandering rivers to coastlines and beaches with big skies.

It can be found at The Café Gallery, in the Natural World Centre, Thorpe-on-the-hill, until Sunday, July 26.

Ladey Adey, chairman of MosArt, said: “We are delighted to see our work displayed so professionally and it was lovely to have a celebration event at the Nature World Centre.”

The exhibition is part of a series of exhibitions that artsNK are programming for the Natural World Centre, in partnership with The National Centre for Craft and Design (NCCD), in Sleaford.

“We are very grateful to artsNK and NCCD for the work they have done in preparing the exhibition,” Ladey added.

The Café Gallery at the Natural World Centre is open 10am–4pm daily.

The group’s next project will be a decorated seating area for The Nettles, in Sleaford.
