Local art showcased at Lancaster City Museum

7 November 2014

The work of a group of talented local artists is currently on show at Lancaster City Museum.

The exhibition, by members of the Lancaster and District Art Society, features around 80 paintings.

Heather Dowler, Lancashire County Council's manager at the city museum, said: "There's a really wide range of work on display for visitors to enjoy, from watercolours and oils to acrylics and mixed media.

"And, as most of the works are for sale, it's a good opportunity for people to snap up an attractive piece of local art, perhaps as a unique Christmas gift."

The Lancaster and District Art Society was set up in 1946 to promote 'the practice of drawing and painting in all mediums'.

These days the society has around 130 members and welcomes anyone with an interest in art who would like to meet like-minded enthusiasts.

The society meets regularly and the exhibition at Lancaster City Museum is part of a varied programme of activities aimed at inspiring its member and developing their skills.

The exhibition runs until 13 December. Entry to the museum is free. Opening times are 10am to 5pm, Monday to Saturday.

The museum is run by Lancashire County Council on behalf of Lancaster City Council.
