The exhibition shows work by a group of artists who in 2011 made the leap from being amateur artists to selling their work professionally. Their paintings are a refreshing mix of contemporary style and broad subject matter. Beautiful portraits, detailed abstract conceptual works, subtle flowers, original and bold landscapes depicting rural and city scenes.
'Really good committed artists. Lots of favourites and surprises, talent that is original, imaginative and aesthetically appealing - whose art you'll want to take home.' Estelle Lovatt, BBC art Critic.
