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.
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’.
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.
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
The Summer Show in the Usher Gallery has ended.
