LFA In York: An Exhibition by Leeds Fine Artists

August 31st - October 31st 2019

We are delighted to be welcoming the Leeds Fine Artists (LFA) to the gallery for their first exhibition in York. The LFA was established in 1874, making it one of the oldest regional art bodies in the UK. From it’s beginnings in Leeds it has spread throughout Yorkshire and is now one of the most prestigious organisations in the North of England. The association currently has over fifty exhibiting members, of which twenty-five will be joining us in the gallery, bringing with them a wide range of styles and media, in both two and three dimensions.
