2015 Summer Exhibition!

MEMBERS' SUMMER EXHIBITION
22nd - 31st August 2015
at St Laurence's Church, Ludlow
10.00am to 5.00pm daily.

The LAS's second and final major exhibition of 2015 is now open to the public! On the evening of August 21st we held our Preview Evening, once again with background music from local talent Jack Brett, and we were provided with a table of drinks and snacks courtesy of Lesley Connolly and Alan Hobbs.

Once again we had hoped to display a selection of artworks from the Ludlow College students, but unfortunately for a second time we found ourselves unable to display (or even locate!) the work. Despite this, though, the astonishingly beautiful setting of St Laurence's Church proved a wonderful location for our exhibition (located in the Chancel), and we were delighted to show a high quality selection of traditional paintings (including work from LAS President Charles MacCarthy), sculptures, glass works, and cards.

The exhibition was opened by PCC member Dr Ewart Carson, who spoke a little about the Church's plans to take out sections of pews to make room for a more creative space, and two awards were given: Samuel Bebb's Olive Grove 1 won the Silk Top Hat Choice, while the Castle Bookshop Choice went to Wilfred Langford's Passing Clouds over Wrekin. There are more awards to come, though, so keep an eye out here and you'll be kept right up to date!
