The Life of
Lendon McClain Scantlebury
23 October 1960 -
It is with great sadness that we have to let you know that our beloved Lendon died tragically and suddenly on the 11th January 2017. He is missed very much by all who knew and loved him, and we are determined that his legacy will prevail. As Lendon wished, we are continuing to organise some large sculpture and art exhibitions each year featuring many talented professional artists.
Lendon was passionate about art, both painting and sculpture. Each year he supported and mentored a young artist. In his memory Meriel Lewis and Dawn Benson have set up The Heartstone Fund. The fund is designed to encourage young people to make the difficult transition to professional artist. The fund will help to mentor, teach and support young artists. Our website is www.heartstone-
The Fund is managed by Dawn, Lendon’s partner. Meriel, who worked closely with Lendon on his exhibitions is also a trustee, as is Jeanette Howse BEM. We will keep you updated as things progress.
