    Fiona Tomas
  • “I’ve come from Jordan to visit my friend who is exhibiting here and it’s great. I’ll definitely come back next year and let my family and friends know, too. It really is a great day out for everyone.”
  • “This is the first time I have visited the show and I found it very professional. In addition to some more established artists, there are upcoming artists who want to gain more followers and have their art seen around the world, so it’s a great opportunity to get exposure.”

    Ahmad Omari
