Well that went rather well. This year we were lucky enough to get a loan of the a shop on St. Martin's Street, possibly best known as Lifestyle. Many thanks go to Petits of Wallingford for allowing us in and the use of one of their mannequins, christened Vincent. Many thanks also go to everyone who took part, including the 20 members of exhibited, 1 extra tutor + 1 invited member a mere 5 days before opening. In the end we put on a great display that almost looked professional including over 100 paintings exhibited including the non-framed pictures in the browser.

It was part of the Wallingford Christmas Festival on 2nd & 3rd December 2017, and being in the town centre must have helped raise the number of people we got through the door. The footfall was estimated at over 300 over the two days. We sold 23 pictures (only 2 to trade) totalling £1,168. Cards and calendars sales totalled £144.69. See below for a full breakdown.
