More upcoming events!

We have three things to update you with, this morning!

-----     -----     -----

Firstly, looking forward to Saturday 11th July, we have a return sketch trip to see the Shropshire Art Society during their exhibition at St Mary's church. We'll aim to get there between 10am and 10.30am, and will be met by members of the SAS. SAS members attending will be paying their usual £2 for the event which will go to St Mary's, and I'm sure they would appreciate a similar donation from any LAS members, although the exhibition itself is free.

Here's what happened when the SAS came to Ludlow earlier in the year: The SAS visit Ludlow

The next update is a reminder about our Artists' Market stall on the weekend of 20th and 21st June! We're doing the same thing we did last year - for £1 per picture you can put any unframed work (browsers, box canvases, etc, but not cards) up for sale. There's no commission so you take 100% of any sales, and once again there are no restrictions on showing previously-exhibited work.
Now, surrounding the LAS' pitch will be a host of other artists' stalls, and nearby there'll be some screeving taking place just outside the College, so Castle Square will be busy, bustling and full of art!
Note: if bringing your artwork along for two days in a row is troublesome, let us know and we'll store your pieces safely overnight for you!

The entry form is right here: LAS Artists' Market Stall Entry Form

The final update is about our next plein air trip, coming up this week on Thursday 11th June

We're holding the day at a place called Holmcroft, Brimfield, near Ludlow, SY8 4NW. It's owned by Mr and Mrs Michael, and it's being specially opened up to the LAS from 11am. Normally there's an entry fee but (I believe) not for us this time, however donations to the National Gardens Scheme are most welcome.

It's 4 miles south of Ludlow, 6 miles north of Leominster. From Ludlow or Leominster leave the A49 at the Salway Arms PH, turn into lane signed Wyson only. From Tenbury Wells cross the A49 into Wyson Lane.

Now, for some details - there's a thatched cottage set in terraced gardens of 3/4 acre, quintessential cottage garden planting - roses, herbaceous borders, kitchen, gravel and woodland gardens all with spectacular views of surrounding countryside. Only the woodland walk is inaccessible for wheelchairs.

It sounds fantastic, hopefully the weather will be fine, and we can get a good number of us out there painting this Thursday!

Thank you to Lesley Connolly for organising the event.
