The exhibition will run from 1st-30th April at Happy & Glorious, on Burgate in Canterbury. A private view will be held on 5th April from 6pm to 8pm, and friends and family of artists are welcome to attend.

All accepted works will be available for purchase, and Happy & Glorious will take a 45% commission on all sales. H&G will also cover the cost of shipping and delivery for sold works.
