What an experience it all was living out the theme of I AM HERe, then sharing with our community through our exhibit. I feel truly grateful to Ruth for her vision and to each artist for what she brought to this journey.

Through the West of Lincoln Project I have been able to remember the amazing chapter in my life that is the formative time for who I am now.
You have reignited my deep passion for painting and renewed the value of it in my life.
Love from rainy England

The West of Lincoln Project is bringing people together because you are caring about their stories, it is truly the spirit of old Venice and community.
