As part of the Cornhill Quarter restoration project, Lincoln is yet to welcome another new development to the area.
Trent Galleries is the latest new business to sign up at The Cornhill Quarter, and will open in September on historic Sincil Street.
Trent Galleries will offer a contemporary art gallery experience in a relaxed and personal setting, showcasing a wide range of fine art and original pieces from a global range of artists.
The launch of the Lincoln gallery marks the fourth gallery space for Trent Galleries, which also operates locations in Newark, Beverley and Oakham.
Trent Galleries has been selling original and limited-edition art and sculpture for over 30 years, and will offer a full and compelling schedule of artist events, with some of the world’s best artists including Fabian Perez, Doug Hyde, Philip Gray, Sherree Valentine Daines and Jennifer Hogwood.
They will also be offering a home approval service, corporate and home consultations, private viewings and interest free payments.
Tracey Morris, Trent Galleries’ Owner and Director said: “We are excited to be opening our fourth gallery in such an inspiring location and feel that The Cornhill Quarter will soon become the hub of Lincoln.
“We are looking forward to working with neighbouring retailers in the coming months.
“Our gallery ethos is excellent customer service and to make everyone welcome.”
“We are looking forward to meeting new clients into the gallery soon.”
Ursula Lidbetter, Lincolnshire Co-op’s Chief Executive, commented:
“We are delighted to welcome Trent Galleries as the newest operator to The Cornhill Quarter.”
“This curated art space will offer a unique and creative experience for visitors to historic Sincil Street, and perfectly complements the mix of national and independent businesses that we have welcomed here.
“Following a sensitive refurbishment that celebrates the Victorian street scape while creating modern retailing units, Sincil Street is now an attractive gateway to the City, connecting the train station, bus station and Central car park.
“As the third phase of our programme completes, we welcome Everyman cinema, the Botanist and fashion brands Phase8, Hobbs and Whistles, all set around the new public space at Exchange Square.”
Trent Galleries will be a curated art space that is inspired by the creative community in this region.
A bespoke gallery shop sign has already been commissioned from Cameron Huggins Blacksmith, a local expert in traditional forging techniques, based in nearby Gainsborough.
