Free Entry

Now in its 117th year, The Lake Artists Society is a joyful, annual celebration of art and creativity.
In 2021, visitors can expect some exciting new changes – not least its location. For the first time in its illustrious history, this annual show will move from its home in Grasmere Village Hall, (currently a Covid vaccination centre) to Rheged’s Gallery.
This year’s show comprises over 300 new works by Cumbrian-based artists from the length and breadth of the county. Exhibitors include both long time society members as well as new and emerging local talent.
Discover masterful landscapes, arresting still life and fascinating portraits in watercolours, oils, acrylics, pastels and charcoal, as well as innovative sculptures in stone, wood and ceramics, earthenware clay, welded steel and wire.
The Society was founded in 1904 by artist W.G. Collingwood, who was also secretary to the well-known art critic, artist and philosopher John Ruskin, of Coniston.
