LSA were delighted to take part in the New Walk Museum 170th birthday celebrations on Saturday 22nd June 2019 in the splendid Victorian Gallery at New Walk Museum.  Fourteen organisations took part in this free event. Visitors to the LSA stand came and chatted to us and took away free postcards featuring work by LSA members.

The 'Hogarth Sketching Competition' was hosted by LSA, with prizes donated by New Walk Museum & Art Gallery for the best Child and Adult drawings.The painting of William Wollaston and his Family in a Grand Interior by 18th century artist William Hogarth has been saved following a crowdfunding campaign and support from Art Fund and will remain on permanent display at New Walk Museum.

Information about the winning drawings coming soon!
