Mezzanine and Platform Galleries
An enticing display of paintings, prints, and drawings by members of Leeds Fine Artists
Leeds Fine Artists was founded in 1874 as an organization to promote the work of professional artists across the Yorkshire region. It currently comprises some fifty members working in both traditional and innovatory styles, using painting and drawing, sculpture and ceramics, photography and printmaking. Landscape and portraiture sit alongside abstract pieces. New members are elected twice a year after a presenting a sample of their work.
LFA organizes regular exhibitions, including an annual display at the Crossley Gallery at Dean Clough in Halifax, as well as ‘meet the artists’ events. In the North York Moors National Park Centre in Danby artists showed interpretations of the Yorkshire landscape, while in a recent exhibition at the University of Leeds gallery LFA artists responded to work from the University’s collection, encouraging visitors to compare and contrast the old and the new, and to reflect on the evolving tradition of art in Yorkshire.
The present exhibition offers an opportunity to sample the range and diversity of work produced by LFA artists. All the work is on a domestic scale and available for purchase at affordable prices.
