Kirton artist exhibiting
at Blackfriars Art Centre in Boston

A member of the Kirton Art Group, Karin Christensen is showing her paintings and drawings for five weeks during the month of May at Blackfriars Art Centre in Boston. The exhibition is called “Streets of Boston”and features over 30 works of art from local street scenes and Lincolnshire landscapes.

Karin has been a member of the Kirton Art Group for many years. She mainly paints using watercolour, with strong elements of drawing and sketching, often giving a striking visual effect. She finds inspiration in the local area and has painted landscapes around Kirton as well as busy street scenes and architecture from Boston.

Karin is originally Norwegian, but having lived in the UK for over 20 years and in Kirton for more than half this time, she considers herself a local. Her work can be seen at www.karinchristensen.com

The exhibition runs from April 30th until June 2nd and is open daily, free entry.

The Kirton Church Fund

The April draw takes place on Sunday 22nd and the winning numbers will be printed in the June magazine.

The May draw takes place on Sunday 27th and the winning numbers will be printed in the July magazine.

No first time winners again this month – both our lucky winners have won before. Congratulations to you both.

It will soon be six years since we started the Kirton Church Fund (how fast time is flying by!) and we have given away a lot of prize money (around £3,300!) Why don’t you come and join us? You too could win! Anyone over 18 may take part.

We have plenty of room for more members and there is a very good chance of winning in the Kirton Church Fund monthly draw.

The prize fund each month is 1/4 of the money taken each month. The rest of the money goes to the Kirton Church Fund.

The more people that join the higher the prize fund and the more money we raise for the church.

Registration forms are available at the back of church or from Fay, please ring 01205 723529, or for more information about Kirton Church Fund please give Fay a ring.
