Leeds Fine Artists (LFA) is an association of artists from across Yorkshire. It was established in 1874, which makes it one of the oldest regional arts bodies in the UK. From its beginnings in Leeds it has spread throughout Yorkshire and is now one of the most prestigious arts organisations in the North of England. LFA is proud of the high standard of work produced by its members. The association currently has over fifty exhibiting members working in two and three dimensions in a wide variety of media.

As well as an annual exhibition, held in the Crossley Gallery at Dean Clough in Halifax, other exhibitions are organised across the region each year, bringing together the wide range of styles and approaches of LFA’s exhibiting members.
