Obituary –  23 February 2024.

Sad news of our past President Peter Moss.

We have received a message that Peter has died.   He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

Our heartfelt condolences go to his family and friends at this sad time.

 

Phil Bowman, our previous Chair has written a touching tribute …

 

Peter Moss

 Today we heard the sad news of the death of Pete Moss.   The Lincolnshire Artists’ Society has lost a true giant. Pete’s intricately glazed ceramics can be found well beyond the boundaries of this county and indeed this country. His skill as an artist craftsman was held in such high regard.

Operating with only one lung and a visage that had been modified many times from too many rugby scrums, Peter was an imposing figure.   His bluff, irreverent cheekiness belied a caring generosity of spirit as many a former student could testify.

His passion for the arts extended beyond his studio to pass on skills to the next generation, sit in countless meetings and mentor so many people over the years that his contribution to the arts  will be sorely missed.

Special thanks and thought to his wife Jan for her devotion and care of our dear friend.

Phil Bowman.

SOCIETY EXHIBITIONS

 

 

 


The Lincolnshire Artists’ Society Exhibitions…

The Society has at least one selected Exhibition each year. Sometimes there are two when we are invited to the Usher Gallery in Lincoln. The numbers of artworks submitted and chosen are governed by the size of each Gallery venue which means a philosophy of ‘quality over quantity’ guides the selectors.

Each selected Show is designed to give visitors a look into the many different working practices of our Members. There is an eclectic mix of styles and ideas which come together to form a unique opportunity to view the art and sculpture of some of Lincolnshire’s finest Artists in one place. Only original pieces are exhibited, with no duplicated prints or cards included in the Show. Many of our members have a personal website for their professional business sales.

The artworks remain on show to visitors until it closes to retain the essence of selection and curation. Each Exhibition has an illustrated catalogue which also lists work available to purchase. The sold pieces can be collected at the close of the Show. An exception is sometimes made for buyers outside the UK to take the work earlier.

Our next Exhibition of artwork by Society members

Our 2024 Spring Show at Doddington Hall has now closed.   

We look forward to returning again next year.

 

 

The exhibition, ‘Art in the Barn’, which features artists from across the county, is an opportunity to experience a wide range of work from some of Lincolnshire’s most talented artists. Featuring paintings and sculptural art by members with many artworks for sale.

Lincolnshire Artists’ Society is delighted to return to the beautiful and welcoming environment of Doddington Hall’s Stable Yard Gallery. This is to be our first show of the year, which opens on 29 March, and it is fitting that it coincides with spring. The season which marks renewal and rejuvenation. What better way to celebrate it than with a display of creative endeavour!

The subtitle of ‘Reflections’ for the exhibition is not a prescribed theme for our members, but rather an invitation to consider something common to much of our output. All artistic work involves an element of rich, inner, thoughtful process. We spend time musing on our subject matter and how we might bring it into the light.

People often ask artists about their decision making and choices. We hope that visitors will find themselves reflecting personally as they move around the gallery space. The viewer is as important as the maker. Well executed art can prompt many thoughts and feelings. Sometimes it even promotes action of a sort. With this in mind, included works not only involve actual reflections, but also contrasting compositions and forms that present internal contemplation about our world and ourselves.

One of the positive elements of large group shows is the potential to showcase a breadth of ideas, visual resolution and technical management of media and materials. Visitors will find a range artworks in both two and three dimensional formats. We very much hope that people find food for thought.
