Leicester Society of Artists’ annual exhibition has long been a highlight of the Leicester arts calendar, showcasing creative talent from across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland since 1881.  LSA members are all local artists and makers, some of international acclaim, who collaborate to bring an exhibition that continues to push the boundaries of achievement and entertainment value, with consistently high-quality submissions. There is a diverse range of media and styles, including painting, drawing, printmaking, photography, textiles, ceramics, and glass and most works are available to purchase. 

This year sees the re-introduction of the LSA Student Award …but with a difference.  Responding to the museum’s ‘Kampala to Leicester’ permanent exhibition students were asked for their interpretation of the refugee crisis. In conjunction with the city of sanctuary the student participated in a workshop with asylum seekers based in Leicester to execute an artwork based on their winning proposal. The LSA Exhibition Curator Lis Naylor says, 'It is the aim of LSA to encourage and support emerging artists to transition from student to professional by providing this award.'
