LAS Socials and some Whats-On communications

Hello, members of LAS, art lovers and friends,
The Art Society has many projects for 2020. Exhibitions and events are getting organised, for us all to participate, exhibit, or just enjoy and bring people along.
There are LAS socials every 18th of the month in the Blue Boar, Ludlow. The January Social was fun, lots to talk about, and cosy.
There will be reminders a few days before each LAS Social, here in the blog, and by email to members. Bring along non-member friends too if you like - the Society is open to anyone interested, and artists joining LAS.
The Socials are also 'Events' on Facebook, to fit FB users' calendars. Search for Ludlow Art Society. You can click "Interested" or "Going" and you will get a reminder when it's coming up, or you can check your FB calendar. And share it with arts friends.

If you are outside Ludlow, car travel may not suit a pub social. If there are other members in your town, maybe organise a local LAS Social. Tell us and we'll publicise it so more people can come along.

If members would like to share info about an event, an exhibition you are in, get feedback about art pieces you are working on, or discuss techniques and arts interests, you can do so by posting to the Ludlow Art Society Facebook page. Some events could be picked up, posted on the blog, and then email-circulated to LAS members.

The Ludlow Art Society has been an artists' community since 1946. Thank you for being part of its growth and activities and breath.
See you at an event!

Spotlight: "Who made this? Who Owns that?"

This Decade’s first Spotlight shines on movement. Art makes the world go round. Art can depict movement, and cause movement.
Here are some artworks.  See if you can guess what they are called, and who painted or made them.

Here is the list of the artists and the titles of those 11 artworks.  Can you match the images to the artists?  Play it with friends if you like....

   Ed Ruscha, “Cold Beer Beautiful Girls”
   Francis Bacon, “Three Studies of Lucian Freud”
   Edgar Degas, “Petite Danceuse de quatorze ans”

   Fernand L├ęger’s “Les Deux Bicyclettes”
   Tracey Emin, “For You”
   Bedda, “It does not matter where we are”
   Thomas Hart Benton, “Back From the Fields”
