2014 Summer Exhibition!

16th - 25th August 2014
at The Harley Centre, Castle Square, Ludlow
10.00am to 5.00pm daily.

Our second show of the year is now open! The private view was held on the evening of the 15th, where we were treated to live music from Jack Brett, and an excellent selection of drinks and nibbles provided by Susanna Checketts and Lesley Connolly. We were pleased to have a table of work from Loudwater Studios, which is sponsored by the VisionHomes charity, we displayed a painting from the late Jean Williams, former chair of the LAS (with details about a retrospective exhibition of hers on 15th and 16th August at the Ludlow Methodist Church in Broad Street), and in addition to all the paintings we also had a wonderful craft table, with sculpture, glasswork, tiles and a painted LP.

Ludlow Open curator Jo King formally opened the show, and one of the prizes, the Silk Top Hat choice, was awarded to George Loades for his painting Above Dhustone. The other prizes (for the Ludlow Brewery choice, the Chang Thai choice, and the Castle Bookshop choice) will be awarded soon, and shortly after that will be mentioned here!
