The Kirkby Lonsdale Art Society’s annual Summer Exhibition offers a chance for local artists and creative people to display their work to residents of the town and also to visitors, many of whom look forward to return visits where they can pick up a bargain or two. The exhibition features oodles of original paintings and drawings by the many talented local artists who make up the society’s membership, quite a lot of whom come from surrounding areas such as Bentham, Kendal and Hornby.
This year’s exhibition will include vibrant contemporary paintings by published artist Tim Pavey, landscapes by Louis and Karen Morton, David Hacking and modern mixed media work by Rosie Hall amongst many others. William Jones will be exhibiting some oil paintings of local scenes, with watercolours by Liz Sumner and mixed media paintings by Anne Nash and Shelagh Worsick.
This year there will be an original painting by talented KLAS member Anne Nash which will be raffled at the exhibition, so one lucky visitor to the show could also be walking away with a brilliant framed original painting.
Kirkby Lonsdale Art Society opens the doors of its annual summer exhibition at St. Mary’s Church on Tuesday, 7 August; it will run until Saturday 11 August, and will be open from 10am until 5pm every day.
