The Friends of the William Lamb Studio (commonly known as the Friends of William Lamb) is a community group established in Montrose, Scotland in 1977. In 1978 the William Lamb Memorial Studio - William Lamb’s own working studio from 1935 until his death in 1951 - was to be re-opened and developed as a small gallery and museum to the memory of William Lamb – one of Scotland’s finest sculptor and artist - under the management of the Museum Service of Angus Council.
Friends was established to support the Council in arrange regular
openings and guided tours of the Studio, promoting both the Studio
and Lamb himself; as well as researching Lamb and all aspects of his
working life - his art pieces and models and the context in which
they were created. In addition we disseminate that information
through the sponsorship and publication of books, articles, leaflets
and guides. They have helped with funding and developing the Studio
and its collections, thereby creating an outstanding exhibition that
draws visitors from all over the world.
The William Lamb Memorial Studio is located at the east end of Trades Close a small pedestrian row that leads from the High Street, Montrose to Market Street.
Since 2019 the Lamb Studio (owned by Angus Council) is subject to new arrangements. The Friends of William Lamb will arrange and run all public Studio openings. The Studio “collections” will be managed by ANGUSalive on behalf of Angus Council – all collections queries should be addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org
In addition the Friends share “Lamb” information through the sponsorship or publication of books, articles, leaflets and guides and through a series of non-Studio events – walks, talks and displays and exhibitions.
Friends is a community group that runs under a constitution. Membership
is open to all on the payment of a small annual fee. Throughout the
year Officers and Committee will arrange Studio openings, activities
related to the aims of the group, usually around Angus or in the
Studio. These events are supported by Friends volunteers.
