LFA Artists’ News

In 2020 the requirement for social isolation has led to all art galleries closing their doors. However, new visual art may still make a positive contribution to the quality of people’s lives and this page offers the public the opportunity to view the work that LFA members are producing in this challenging time for all of us. We hope that visitors to the website will gain some pleasure and benefit from these posts. Take care and keep safe.

In the current circumstances LFA is not able to hold its annual exhibition at Dean Clough in June and July as planned. At present LFA is unable to say if its other exhibitions planned for later in the year will go ahead.
