It proved such a success with art lovers that the event, held on Saturday, May 12, and Sunday, May 13, saw most of the new artwork sold, as well as new commissions being secured.

Anita owns the newly opened exhibitors gallery as well as the Mortimer Art Gallery, also in North Street.

The Raw exhibition showcased Anita’s new season of new artwork, consisting of original artwork and drawings.
