The  110th Annual Exhibition got off to a great start with the opening by Douglas Binder and the launch of Edward Mayor’s latest book The Lincolnshire Artists’ Society: A Brave Decade. Thanks go to the committee members for their skills in setting out all the work  so well and also to the Usher for their help in making this a great show. The exhibition runs until 15th June so plenty of time to go and see all the wonderful work on show.
