Boroughs Summer Group Show
We've shown artwork by so many talented artists over the last 12 years here's an exhibition to celebrate work from recent artists who have shown at The Boroughs.
Most works are framed, a mix of originals or artist quality archival prints on 300 gsm rag paper.
My apologies for the photography, shooting glass framed objects in the store is hard workl!
