Her overriding aim is to inform, excite, educate and enthuse. She has produced a rich and diverse range of unusual, tactile interactive artwork.
The exhibition includes work spanning 4 years and incorporates materials which have been given a new life.
Her fascination is with human beings and how they interact, constantly questioning who we are, what influences us, and how we are continually shaped by our environment and those around us.
In this exhibition she reflects on human communication, both conscious and subconscious.

‘Aspects of the Feminine’
The first joint exhibition of work by artists Sylvia Soulsby and Ann Stoker.
‘Aspects of the Feminine’ explores the notion of ‘the feminine principle’ and how it might express itself. The concept of masculine and feminine principles has been in existence from time immemorial. Its roots may be found in many cultures, spiritual traditions and belief systems. Jung referred to the feminine principle as ‘the anima’ and the masculine principle as ‘the animus’, archetypes of the unconscious mind.
“Female refers to a person’s sex, ‘feminine’ is an attribute that either gender may integrate.”
Carol Wolf Winters PHD (excerpt from her book in progress)

A first joint exhibition of drawings, paintings and prints by Lincolnshire based artists Rob Whitney, Jaci Gill, Johanna Cooper and Julie Clulow.
‘Art is a form of experimentation’ – this sums up where I am with my work at the moment. After years of mostly working in watercolour, I am enjoying experimenting with oils, pastels, acrylics and mixed media to interpret those things and places that move me to paint and draw.
Julie Clulow works in a variety of media including watercolour acrylic, egg tempera, lino print and more recently with stained glass.
Her designs for this exhibition reflect a love of the moonlit ‘pastoral’, a world of quiet contemplation, imagination and sanctuary, which reflects the longstanding influence on her work of 19th century visionary artist Samuel Palmer. Her work also echoes a love of the flowing forms of Celtic art and medieval stained glass.
Rob Whitney was born in 1954 in Northampton. As a child he loved to draw and would spend hours sketching in biro. Whilst still at school Rob won a place to attend a Saturday morning Art Club at Northampton School of Art. This gave him his first taste of drawing and painting in a college environment and set out his career path with the ambition
to work in the creative arts.
Rob is now a self employed graphic designer and is also a painter of large semi abstract canvases. He began painting in acrylics some 10 years ago and held his own exhibition at the Southwell Art Space. He also uses watercolour, coloured pencil and pen and ink.
The FOUR exhibition will see Rob’s work explore more moody atmospheric landscapes alongside work showing subtle deep fusions of colour and form.
Through my work I endeavour to portray my emotional response to my surroundings and my interest in the connection that can be experienced between a person and nature.
In my work I am trying to take the viewer with me, to place him/her at the place and time, to let them experience some of the emotions that I felt in the creation of the work and give an essence of the location which initially fed the work produced.
Tuesday 8th July – Sunday 20th July 2014
The Lincolnshire Artists’ Society, founded as the Lincolnshire Drawing Club, celebrated its Centenary in 2006. Inspired by the Cambridge Drawing Society founded in 1882, it was followed by the St Ives Society in 1927.
Primarily an exhibiting society welcoming artists from all over the county, the L.A.S. started out with an Annual Exhibition in the loose boxes of the stables at Monks Manor, Lincoln, the home of its founder, Miss Elsie Ruston, and her art collecting industrialist father, Joseph. It moved to the city’s Exchange Arcade in 1910 following interest from the press and public, then to a room in the new Central library eventually finding its ideal home in the Usher Gallery from 1927. A great survivor, it emerged from an enforced period of inactivity in the First World War and has had an unbroken run of exhibitions in Lincoln and around the county ever since.
The show at the Sam Scorer Gallery brings together work from across the county .Because the Society has over 100 members there is always strong competition for the opportunity to show in Lincoln. A diverse and vibrant show is in store.
Maggie Dean a long standing member of the Society left an endowment to the Society to fund an annual award presented for the most lively work in the Summer Show.
For the first time last year the award was been made through a visitor vote. With nearly 900 votes cast it proved a popular and lively talking point, with many lively family discussions between visitors about who was going to vote for which work. There were also some lively discussions on what a work needs to be lively.
All visitors will have the chance to form their own views and vote for their favorite work during the course of the show.
Open daily 10am – 4pm
Tuesday 24th June – Sunday 6th July

George Barker – ‘Light at the end of the tunnel’
Monday 26th May – Sunday 8th June
“As a figurative artist working in the medium of glass and metal, my drawings are an alternative to traditional drawing techniques, a method I have developed over the last fifteen years through a natural progression.
Experimentation is a very important factor in this progression and with a simple palette of glass and copper, sterling silver, 24ct gold, schlag, brass and aluminium, which all perform with a desired unpredictability, new work has evolved. I am figurative, but I do make other stuff too!”
Open daily 10am – 5pm
