A number of new artists in residence have been announced by The Collection Museum in Lincoln.

Michael Shaw, Belen Cerezo and Ros Lorimer have been selected as the OPEM Artists in Residence for 2019.

OPEM is a biannual open-call exhibition run by The Collection Museum, showcasing artists working in the East Midlands.

From 11 May to 23 June 2019, the museum’s New Curtois Gallery will be transformed into public studio space for the artists in residence.

Jenny Gleadell, Exhibitions and Interpretation Officer, said: “Michael, Belen and Ros were hand-picked from a pool of over 30 applicants, and each has their own unique approach.

“During the exhibition, visitors will be able to talk to the artists about their work as they produce it and may even be able to help create and develop the work itself.

“There will also be a programme of workshops and learning events, offering schools and groups a further opportunity to work directly with the artists. It promises to give visitors a fascinating insight into the process of artistic creation.”
