More About the Show

The exhibition includes paintings, sculptures, drawings, and photographs in a wide range of styles. Proceeds of sales go directly to the artists.

Strand co-owner Andrew Smyth says of the show:
"As with any exhibition of 58 works of art by as many ­different artists, the range of styles, ­subjects, and media will run the spectrum.

This show is no exception, ­featuring all colours and all sizes in abundance, from embroidery to woodcarving to portraiture and landscapes to origami and ­abstraction. I am constantly amazed by the human imagination and the variety and scope of what we can create.”
