‘Not the Usual Suspects’ at LSA’s Summer Show – Warwickshire

Leamington Studio Artists (LSA) present a rich and exciting showcase of over 100 works by 68 local and regional artists.

This year, Gallery150 will be hosting the ‘2012 LSA Summer Show’,Not the Usual Suspects’ in the Livery Street gallery, in Leamington, Warwickshire.

This coveted annual exhibition will feature the work of LSA members and non-members from Leamington and across the Midlands.

With a steady rise in members in recent years, the show has become increasingly more popular and covers a broad range of mediums, including painting, drawing, photography and sculpture by talented emerging and established artists alike. And, this year, there will be over 100 works by a good 68 artists, some of whom will be exhibiting with the fifteen-year old organisation for the first time. Visitors to the show will also be able to get a preview of works by a number of artists participating in the up-coming Warwickshire Open Studios (30th June to the 15th July).

This year the audience will have the opportunity to vote for their favourite artist. The winning artist will be awarded a cash prize of 500 pounds and a special feature in Artspace, the LSA arts journal, which has been in print since 1998. All of the voters’ names will also be entered into a prize draw and the winner will receive a Giclée print of ‘Not the Usual Subjects’.
