Latest News: 2020 Event Update

March 1, 2020

Dear Visitors,

Unfortunately the 2020 event was cancelled due to the global pandemic Covid-19.

Many of the studios that participate in the event are open throughout the year or by appointment, we encourage you to contact studios you had planned to visit directly to arrange private viewings of their work, many of them are also selling their works on line for you.  

We look forward to welcoming you back to the event in the future.

Thank you to all of our Visitors and Supporters.
