Made in England

Location: Germany, Hungary & Italy  Date: 2014

Made in England . . .

A touring exhibition of twenty artists from Skegness travelling to Germany, Hungary and Italy.

I was Made in England...

The varied, ever changing yet reassuringly constant landscape of Skegness plays a vital role in the inspiration of its artists - contrasts of the epic rolling Wolds with often calm but also equally dramatic torrents of the sea; the garish, addictive attraction of fairground amusements versus tranquil sculpted public gardens and unspoilt nature reserves.

You will see homage paid to all that makes Skegness special appearing more than once in the Made in England exhibition - the characters, scenery, history as well as the effects of the transient nature of tourism on our town.

Skegness has been twinned with the German town of Bad Gandersheim since 1979 - objectives of the association are to promote friendship and understanding between the people of both towns.

Another motivation of the project has been to promote opportunities to network and so bring about a mutual appreciation of our diversity.

Whilst celebrating and discovering subtle differences and similarities between our individual backgrounds, the international language of Art helps to broaden perspectives and establish a recognised presence for the growth of new collaborative friendships on an international platform.
