Basically it means nothing larger than 12in square, with style, subject matter, medium, all differing widely. This month the group’s 35 current members are celebrating the 31st exhibition at Piers Feetham (see Map 20), which gallery has in recent years been among their staunchest supporters – and you can see why, with members like Ken Howard, Bill Packer, Charles Williams and Linda Sutton all participating and producing ‘cabinet’ sized work that is intimate, easy to place and, essentially, affordable.
