Uplands Festival Exhibition 2010

The Uplands Festival 2010 was even better than last year - which was even better than the previous year, which was.....even better...
We had a smaller than usual presence this year, but it was very comfortable and manageable, and several paintings were sold.
The exhibition itself was most successful, and Uplands report sale of almost R250,000. Congratulations Uplands and all the exhibiting artists! That's great.
We would also like to thank Uplands for once again inviting us to participate. We enjoyed the Festival and loved participating.
