Our ever-popular 30 x 30 small works display returns to our annual exhibition this year, offering a fantastic varied selection of small works for sale at affordable prices.

All Society members are welcome to submit work. There is no selection process and there is no entry charge. Throughout the exhibition works are displayed on rotation in our changing display. If you are not a member and would like to join you can do so HERE
