Upcoming - um... everything!

Well, okay, maybe not everything, but certainly there's a lot coming up over the next month or so - plenty to keep you busy. If you like wandering around exhibitions, if you like socialising, if you like urban art, if you like plein air painting or if you're interested in a painting workshop, there's something for you! Here's a quick run-down of what's going on in Ludlow, and one or two events in nearby towns:

Exhibitions at Silk Top Hat and Assembly Rooms - there's always an exhibition of something at both Silk Top Hat and the Assembly Rooms. Check out "What's On" at the top of this blog for details and dates.

Tom Crowe's paintings at The Clive - from 20th July, LAS Treasurer Tom Crowe is exhibiting some of his iPad paintings. If you're out that way, take a look!

Plein Air - tomorrow (12th), the Friday Group is out at Croft Castle; this Saturday (13th) the LAS is out at Leintwardine; the Friday Group is then at Brampton Bryan Park and village on the 19th, and on the 26th has its last plein air of the year at Bishops Castle; the LAS then has one final plein air session at the Bromfield Food Centre on August 3rd. LAS dates can be found in the Programme, button to the right; Friday Group dates can be found in the link at the bottom of "What's On".

Shrewsbury Sketch Club - every fortnight, on Sunday afternoon 2-4pm, a small and friendly group meets in the Shrewsbury Coffeehouse. Everyone's welcome, and there's often a specific activity if you'd like to try it, if not you're invited to just sketch. Everybody's welcome, just ask for Steve Lovejoy and say Sam from Ludlow sent you!

August Art! Squad - this one's great fun. On the first Wednesday of every month, in the Shrewsbury Coffeehouse from 7-9pm Art! Squad  runs. Each month you're invited to bring along a piece of work on a theme, and the winner gets their piece hung in the gallery for a month - this month's theme is 'sea', so seascapes, seasides, mermaids, pirates, etc are all possibilities! There are also mini-tasks to have a go at, with smaller prizes on offer. Everyone's welcome - ask for Pip, and again say Sam from Ludlow sent you!

Summer Schools - have you signed up for these yet? With workshops for Life Painting (12th-14th August), Portrait (19th-21st August), and Still Life 27th-29th August), these are 3-day courses run in the Museum Resource Centre. All details can be found in the "What's On" section above.

Above Boards Paint Jam - a two-day event during the Kidderminster Arts Festival and hosted by the Boar's Head Gallery, this takes place on 10th and 11th August. Regional and national artists will be there, painting on large boards outside the Gallery, on panels that are boarding up nearby buildings, and there'll be more artists at work down in the subways. There'll also be an exhibition of work from the artists in the gallery itself. Both LAS Committee Member Lesley Connolly and I will be painting for this event - come along and say "Hi"!

LAS Summer Exhibition - you all know this one! 17th-26th August, with a preview on the evening of 16th. Deadline for submitting entry forms is 1st August!

If there's something I've missed, and it's not covered in "What's On", drop me a line at and I'll make sure to cover it!
