Visual Arts

The LBT supports local artists and displays a diverse mix of visual work throughout the year.

The exhibition programme is original and full of character – from the thought provoking subject matter to the craft and artistry. Our changing programme offers a mix of visual arts and every time you visit there will be an interesting array of artworks on display.

We also offer studio space to passionate practicing local artists, so they can develop their work with others in a creative environment. With an open door policy visitors are welcome to visit their space and find out about their current works in progress.

Our current Visual Artists in Residence are Barbara Hellowell, Freyja Boycott-Garnett, Jane Wilson and Terence J Lambert, look out for their exhibition of new work throughout the venue from April 2019.
