Art Competition and Exhibition 2014

The Art Competition is back for a sixth year and we hope to attract as many entries as we did last year. We also hope to continue with our Touring Exhibition which took a selection of work out to public galleries and spaces last year. This was very well received and we intend to repeat this.
