The Lincolnshire Artists' Society Summer Show

The Lincolnshire Artists’ Society was founded in 1906 as the Lincolnshire Drawing Club.

Members come from across Lincolnshire and while they work in a wide variety of styles and media, they share a strong creative passion.

This year’s Summer Show brings together the work of 35 artists. As well as a rich range of pictures there are inventive and original 3D works. Whenever you visit the show a member of the society will be there and will be happy to talk to you about their own work and the process of making, as well as sharing ideas about the exhibition as a whole. The show will be open every day from 19th June-1st July 10- 4.

Natasha Monfared: Artscape Winner 2018

"Being political is an integral part of being Iranian. Our lives are defined by politics" – Shirin Neshat

Since the Iranian Revolution of 1979, women have constantly found ways to rebel against restrictive laws. Natasha Monfared highlights this ongoing resistance by Iranian women through collage and sculpture. The role the mandatory veil plays within her work explores and questions its initial function in relation to a political weapon. Acting as a voice for these women who lack freedom of speech, Monfared aims to raise awareness of a fleeting moment of protest.

How we perceive women in Iran may be stereotypical, but this begs the question: what is the source of this oppression?

Show runs from June 5th-June 17th every day from 10-4.

I have worked on and off with mosaic for 10 years. I now run classes at my studio in Nettleham and would like to bring that experience to you at the Sam Scorer Gallery.  Mosaic is a craft that is achievable to all, no prior knowledge required.
All tools, materials, guidance and enthusiasm for you to create your own bespoke mosaic stone is provided for. It’s a great opportunity to meet up and make friends. On this first session you will make your mosaic stone, it then needs to dry so that it can be grouted and competed. 
The second half day session to finish your mosaic will take place on Thursday January 18th from 2-4pm.
