The Summer Show 2023 was held at Dora House from 17 July to 30 September and it was a fabulous showcase of more than 50 members' and fellows' work.
This year's theme The Shape of Life had been selected by guest curator Edward Bulmer. A leading interior designer, architectural historian and colour expert, Edward is also the founder of eco-favourite, Edward Bulmer Natural Paints.
