LEEDS FINE ARTISTS

LFA Artists’ News

From the summer of 2021 galleries in the UK began to reopen for public exhibitions. The Members News posts for September 2021 onwards will now feature LFA Members who have work on display in galleries.

As a consequence of the Covid-19 pandemic, LFA’s first physical exhibition in over a year was from 16th April to 21st June 2021 at the Blossom Street Gallery in York.

The second physical exhibition was “Look Again: Leeds Fine Artists” at the Stanley and Audrey Burton Gallery, University of Leeds, 8th June to 23rd October 2021. LFA members were invited to respond to artworks in the University Art Collection. Each artist responded to their chosen piece in their own style, media and format.

Prior to these exhibitions, during the various stages of the pandemic lockdowns the Members News posts offered the public the opportunity to view the work that took place in our members’ studios and the posts also featured two LFA online exhibitions.

Look Again – Welsh Landscape

I chose Augustus John’s ‘Welsh Landscape’ initially because it just felt right for me. I felt it would be a personal journey not only to ‘look again’ at an artist that I had always thought so much of, but now the landscapes of this period (c1911-1914).
