As the world went on ‘hold’ during the 2020 COVID pandemic, Leicester Society of Artists was forced to cancel its Annual Exhibition for only the second time in its 135 year history. As we emerge out of lockdown the LSA is delighted to be exhibiting at Newarke Houses Museum from 7 - 31 October 2021.

Leicester, Leicestershire & Rutland are packed with creative talent, including the members of Leicester Society of Artists. The LSA which has been running since 1881 has seen quite a few changes in the last  140 years. The society is a dynamic and diverse group of artists, working in a huge range of media and styles, from oil paintings to contemporary craft, sculpture, print, and collage.

This exhibition is one of the highlights of the arts calendar in Leicester where you can see, and buy, new and exciting work by many of the finest professional artists in the area.
