On behalf of the members of the Lake Artists Society I am delighted to welcome you all to our 114th Summer Exhibition.
I also would like to welcome Mark Pearce and Marion Kuit, both gifted print makers; Janet Kenyon, multi award winning watercolourist and Mark Gibbs with his remarkable metal sculptures, who were elected to the Society last year.
A big thank you goes to Deborah Clark for her expert assistance and Liz Savage who is our stalwart exhibition supervisor.
Also, to Sally Toms and Sarah Waterhouse for our new website.
Furthermore, I would like to congratulate Phil and Joan Hobbs who are in charge of FOLAS, Friends of the Lake Artists Society, for their excellent on-line magazine. (Hard copies are available).
Many thanks must also go to our sponsors for the awards for works by non-members who have been selected for this year's exhibition, and I wish all participants every success.
Once again, postcards of images in the catalogue are available and members' exhibits can be viewed on our website.
Over the years the Society has exhibited the work of many famous artists. Frank Bramley RA, Kurt Schwitters, Sir Frank Brangwyn RA, Sir Russell Flint and Dame Laura Knight, to mention a few.
Today's members are well aware that they stand on the shoulders of long standing and gifted fine artists and sculptors, not only continuing the tradition of excellence set up by their forebears, but with their eyes on the future, carrying it forward, making their mark in the current Art world. Several members have, this year, based their work on that of past members. Looking back and bringing forward both in style and content.
My thanks go to all those involved in the presentation of this year's exhibition, particularly · the members of FOLAS for their continuing support.
