Lincolnshire Artists’ Society (LAS) once again hold their Summer Exhibition at the prestigious Sam Scorer Gallery in Lincoln.

The Exhibition, which runs until July 20, is open will be open from 10 to 4pm Tuesday to Sunday and admission is free.

“We hope that people will find the time to come along and support local artists,” said society chairman Les Dabrowski.

“We are delighted to be back at Sam Scorer, which provides such a good space to show off the talents of the many artists and crafts people who are our members.

“The area has a number of galleries and this is an opportunity for both locals and tourists to enjoy a wide range of art work.”

The Lincolnshire Artists’ Society, founded as the Lincolnshire Drawing Club, celebrated its Centenary in 2006.

Inspired by the Cambridge Drawing Society, founded in 1882, it was followed by the St Ives Society in 1927.

Primarily an exhibiting society welcoming artists from across the county, the LAS started out with an annual exhibition in the loose boxes of the stables at Monks Manor in Lincoln, the home of its founder, Miss Elsie Ruston, and her art collecting industrialist father, Joseph.

It moved to the city’s Exchange Arcade in 1910 following interest from the press and public, then to a room in the new Central library, eventually finding a home in the Usher Gallery from 1927.

A great survivor, it emerged from an enforced period of inactivity in the First World War and has had an unbroken run of exhibitions in Lincoln and around the county ever since.

The Gallery, in Drury Lane, was originally set up by celebrated architect Sam Scorer and is now run by the Gallery Arts Trust.
