 Breaking News!  h.Art Goes Independent!

This is an exciting year for h.Art, which is now an independent company under the direction of Mel Potter.  Mel has been the guiding force behind h.Art’s success in recent years, under the banner of Brightstripe, which because of issues related to pensions, is no more. Mel now has a fantastic opportunity to take h.Art up to the next level, with the tighter focus that independence will allow.

SMAAAK will be working to build on the success of previous h.Art exhibitions here in Kingsland.  Last year we sold a massive £17,500 worth of art and craft, which not only added some £4,000 to SMAAAK’s funds, but also made a valuable contribution to local artists.
