Light and airy display venue

This is so close to Steep Hill that it is really worth a visit if you are in the immediate area. It is almost next to the Castle Square car park. The gallery is nicely decorated, is free to access and has some different exhibits at different times. It was a photography exhibition when I visited and I enjoyed it.

Can be good - but unreliable and frequently not open when it's supposed to be

There are sometimes some very good exhibitions on here, but the publicity for them is pretty much non-existent, and you're unlikely to find the gallery unless you know it's there.

The signage is poor - and they lay the blame for that on Lincoln City Council. I suspect the real cause is that the trustees are rather less than proactive. The poor, frequently out of date, website's another symptom of that, and messages sent from there or from Facebook frequently go unanswered.

Be warned also that although exhibitions are usually shown as opening at 10am they frequently don't - it's usually the artists themselves responsible for opening up, and many of them don't bother to turn up until somewhat later.

In short, it's all a bit haphazard and hit and miss. Needs a lot more organisation than the trustees can afford to give it, and although Sam Scorer (a celebrated local architect) left Lincoln a great asset, it's sadly much underachieving on what it could achieve.

Called on Monday morning, after checking on the internet that it was open, only to find it was closed. A hand written notice was on the door. What a shame as we were going to look at the Soulsby/conway exhibition.

Great exhibition area

Exhibitions are changed fortnightly.
This means you get to see a huge variety of artistic work and indeed on many occasions meet the artists.

I have visited this gallery numerous times. They have a 2 week revolving programme of exhibitions which are managed by the exhibiting artist or group of artists. This ensures that visitors see fresh artists and have new work to view. The gallery is close to the Castle in Castle Square and Lincoln Cathedral is just around the corner.

There are many galleries in close proximity and a wide range of art to view.

I can't wait to visit on Thursday as it will be my first of the year.
