The Lincolnshire Artists’ Society first exhibited at The Usher Gallery in 1927 and has exhibited there many times over the years,

but it is always a very special occasion for its members.

In addition, LAS exhibitions are held in other galleries around the county…

including annually at Doddington Hall & Gardens.









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

Dear Members,

Many thanks to all who showed in the exhibition 'Vista' in Sam Scorer Gallery.  The exhibition was very well received and 8 works were sold.  The Oyler/Hayward prize of £200 went to Martin Moyes for his painting 'After the Rain ( Somersby House Farm)

Best wishes.

I would also like to add my thanks....

To all who took part in curating and setting up the show (and taking it down), and the members and volunteers who manned the Show daily so it could be enjoyed by the visitors.   Thank you.

And....many thanks to all the visitors who came to enjoy it.

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.

The first exhibition invitation


Our First Exhibition

The Drawing Society Exhibition 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 its ideal home in the Usher Gallery from 1927.

Autumn Exhibition 2017

The exhibition ran from 16 September to 15 October 2017, featuring works of art from its members who live across the county, giving them the chance to showcase their talents to the public.

This popular exhibition, displayed in the Usher Gallery, showcases the work of some of Lincolnshire’s most talented artists.
The Lincolnshire Artists’ Society first exhibited at The Usher Gallery in 1927 and has exhibited there many times over the years, including their 110th Annual Exhibition in 2016. The Usher is welcoming them back for an extra show this autumn.

Alan Parker, Chairman of the Society, said: “We are honoured and delighted to be invited back to the Usher this year. The exhibition promises to be spectacular with new works from members, who relish the opportunity to display their work in such a wonderful environment”.

110th Anniversary Exhibition 2016

The Lincolnshire Artists’ Society will be celebrating its 110th anniversary this year with an exhibition that looks to honour past and present members, as well as the work of the society over the past century. One of the main attractions at the event is the ’10 Year Wall’, which celebrates the work of prominent artists who have exhibited with the Society over the last ten years. This will include work by David Paton, a previous Chairman of the Society who recently passed away. Other artists featured will include: Max Marschner, Jacky Lee, Ken Lee and David Hollinshead.

As well as the exhibition itself, the society will be celebrating the publication of a second book about the past 10 years of work by the Lincolnshire Artists’ Society. The book was written by local author Edward Mayor and goes on sale the day of the opening. The exhibition will feature a number of artworks created by past and current members, with awards being presented to some of the works by the society itself throughout the exhibition.

Usher 2015 Summer Exhibition

The Society showed 129 works including 30 3D pieces against the newly painted grey walls of the large upstairs gallery rooms. The opening was momentous for the three speeches by Carol Butler (Chair), Peter Moss (retiring President) and his successor Ian Walter.

Peter Moss was retiring after serving 18 years as President, handing over to Ian Walter, who has been a staunch supporter of the Society for many years.  

As a gift from the Society,  Peter was presented with the gift of a figure study by the late artist and LAS member Tony Bartl which had been chosen by invitation from Sheila Bartl’s private collection.  

Antonio (Tony) Bartl (1912-1998) had a long and influential association with the Society from 1950 until his death in 1998.
