Showcasing Lincolnshire Artists Since 1906

 

 

The aims of the society are to promote among Members the highest standards of achievement in the arts, promote awareness of their work and to enable Members to exhibit and sell their works.

 

 

 

SOCIETY NEWS:

 


Here are the details of Frank Marston’s funeral with an invitation to attend for anyone who knew him.    It is to be held on Monday 5th December at Grimsby Crematorium, 2.15pm

The wake is to be at Millfields Hotel, Bargate, Grimsby, DM34 5AD.

OBITUARY – FRANK MARSTON

It is with sadness that we give news of the death of Frank Marston, one of our Society Members.    Frank was a respected member of the Society and served on the Committee.      He became General Secretary in 1999..and was elected as Chair in 2007.    He was fluent in carving, printmaking and painting.

A note from Phil Bowman our recent Chair who knew Frank well…

“He was the calming voice in the LAS and a passionate defender of all the arts whether that be fine art or the spoken word”.

Also, an excerpt from Edward Mayor’s book ‘Lincolnshire Artists – A Brave Decade 2006-2016′

‘2010…This would be Frank Marston’s year, with his Chairmanship in its final months and his solo exhibition at the Sam Scorer Gallery.   Devoted to ensuring that the LAS would continue to exhibit at the Usher, he feared that without the Gallery’s welcome, the Society would die.   He also continued his other mission, to demonstrate the inter-relationship of all the arts, having a passionate involvement with poetry, music and astronomy, as well as the Fine Arts’.

EXHIBITION NEWS:

 

 

The closure of Sam Scorer Gallery....

The new owners took over in September 2022.    Thanks are due to the Scorer family who allowed the use of the building for Artists to show their work for over 20 years.    The Lincolnshire Artists' Society has had a long association with the Gallery for our Exhibitions.

Future Shows...

We are happy to tell you our Doddington Hall & Gardens Shows have been extended to each year in their Stables Gallery.    These annual Shows will take place early in the year around Easter and mid-May.   Details of our 2023 Show will be on our website nearer the time.  

 

The Usher Gallery...

We are happy to know the future of the Usher Gallery is a little more certain.   We hope to return in 2024 for our LAS Show

NEWS.....

 

 

Dear Members,
 
You will no doubt have heard the good news regarding the Usher Gallery.  Its future has been secured as a functioning art gallery. 
 
Special thanks must be passed onto the Usher Trust for its tireless work behind the scenes.  In particular Chair of UGT Ian Walter and Lord Patrick Cormack. 
 
We cannot forget the passion and hard work unleashed by members of S.L.U.G.
 
Last but by no means least, both the City and County Councils for finding common ground to ensure the James Usher legacy continues to enrich the cultural heritage of the City.
 
As regards the Lincolnshire Artists' Society, I am sure we will continue to have a presence in the Usher's exhibition calendar.
