We are so grateful to all the artists, visitors, sponsors, and volunteers for making the 30th anniversary show such a success! We welcomed over 1000 people of all ages through our doors during the 10-day exhibition, a 30% increase compared to 2022. We are pleased to announce that we sold 34 pieces of artworks, representing one third of the collection. We repeatedly heard the words “spectacular”, “wonderful”, and ” stellar” to describe the show. It’s safe to say that this year’s edition was a crowd-pleaser!
