More about the bursary and the artists:

The Collection Museum announces four recipients of its Artist Development scheme.
Four local artists have been awarded the 'Time for Practice' bursaries, meaning they will have two months bespoke curatorial support and a grant to help develop their work.

Our four selected Lincolnshire-based artists are listed below:

Nikki Carroll works in sculpture, ceramics and installation. Her work focuses on the human body and the nervous system, exploring through sculptural installations and works how the human body and nervous system can be understood as a landscape or space.

Darren Neave explores both 'display' and 'displaying', taking every day and decorative objects and exploring taste, styles, techniques. Darren's 'queered up' objects and interventions encourage the viewer to look again, ensnaring and enticing to result in a potentially deeper engagement.

James Ellis works with collage to create minimalist and colourful compositions from hand cut printed media, inspired by the balance of nature and the organic forms of the human body.

Karen Barnes' practice involves Paper Art, Craft & Design. Karen is inspired by origami, geometry and Zen philosophy and mindful creative activity and the benefits this can have on mental health.

You can find out more about the development of their work via our social media channels @collectionusher /collectionusher

This bursary is a response to the on-going difficulties for contemporary artists in the region caused by Covid-19.
