Tathwell lies just three miles south of Louth off the A16 to Boston or A153 Horncastle road. The exhibition has grown considerably since four people met in Tathwell church to discuss whether it would be possible to stage an art exhibition. Originally the idea of church warden Chris Rolph, he had invited follow church warden and local painter, Juliet Carter, and local historian Jean Howard to meet up and consider the suggestion. Although to was hoped the artist might lead the project she said, "I think you could do this yourselves!" With the help of Ernest Edwardson, village resident and woodwork teacher at Monks’ Dyke School, Louth a support system consisting of pegboard was developed that could be propped in place and removed at the end of the exhibition, thus avoiding the need for a faculty. Ernest’s construction was so good they're still using the same boards. For further information please contact 01507 605474 or 01507 601680.
