Whilst organising the artistic section for the London Show, I had the opportunity to photograph this year's artwork. I would like to post small images of these paintings and needlework on the website for those of you who are not able to visit the shows in the UK mainland.

I'm not going to make many comments; to me, all these works are beautiful, and a constant refrain along those lines would become tiresome. The different artists have different styles, and each has their own merits.
