THE EXHIBITION - APRIL 2016
The show is now over! Thank you for your support!
The Heart & Soul Exhibition has been a magnificent success with a full capacity crowd at the private view which was exciting and heart warming with all the live auction lots selling for fantastic prices to help wildlife. The silent auction also exceeded expectations and the rest of the show was extremely well attended with 142 framed and 375 unframed prints sold. Thank you to all of you who visited.
The 6 day show at central London's Mall Galleries raised over £303,000.

"A personal triumph for you in every possible way. I was overjoyed to watch and hear the response from the crowd in the room. I can’t think of anyone who deserves it more. I don't remember ever being at an auction of art that has been as exciting, nail-biting and thrilling as this one! "
