Press release issued for Winter Exhibition

Be entranced, enchanted, beguiled, bedazzled…….


After a very successful Summer Exhibition at Sam Scorer, Lincolnshire Artists’ Society is delighted to be back for their Winter Exhibition, which will be from Tuesday 25th November to Sunday 7th December (closed Monday 1st December). The gallery will be open 10.30 – 4.30pm each day with a late night opening until 8pm on 4th, 5th and 6th December during the Lincoln Christmas Market. Admission is free.


There will be a range of art from many of Lincolnshire’s best-loved artists including paintings and 3D work. Carol Butler, the incoming Chairman of the Society, said: “There will be something to delight and perhaps tempt visitors as our exhibitions always include an exciting mix of work: paintings, ceramics, glass, stone and wood. This year we will be open for the Christmas Market, we look forward to welcoming visitors from far and wide as well as friends from around the county. If you are visiting the Market please call in at The Scorer Gallery and enjoy a little calm away from the crowds.”


Background information:

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 all over the county, the L.A.S. started out with an Annual Exhibition in the loose boxes of the stables at Monks Manor, 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 was originally set up by Sam Scorer, the celebrated architect, and is now run by the Gallery Arts Trust.
