LAS 2015 Spring Exhibition

4th - 13th April 2015
at The Harley Centre, Castle Square, Ludlow
10.00am to 5.00pm daily.

The LAS's first exhibition of 2015 is now open! On the evening of April 3rd we held our Private View, which was held against a backdrop of music from the very talented Jack Brett and which was served by a selection of drinks and snacks provided by Lesley Connolly and Susanna Checketts.

We hoped to have artwork from the students of Ludlow College, but due to circumstances beyond the LAS's control at the last minute we found ourselves without. We did, however, have our first ever display of cards our members had produced, as well as our usual wide and beautifully varied selection of paintings and more sculptural pieces on the craft table, and two screens of work from our new President, Charles MacCarthy.

Local businessman and Fringe committee member Adam Tutt opened the show, and Drusilla Cole won the Castle Bookshop Choice award for one of her skillfully-executed linocut pieces, while Lesley Connolly's 'Seedheads' won the Silk Top Hat Choice and Christine Loran's 'Candlelight' was the President's Choice. There are other awards still to be handed out, and we'll keep you updated as soon as they come in!
