36 Artists have been invited to participate in this exhibition, each presenting their interpretation of what magic means to them or how it relates to their lives.  There are so many interpretations of this thought.

Magic can influence events. It may conjure thoughts of the supernatural or witchcraft. Or it may be the feeling you have when you are entering a special place. There are magical elements every day in the course of events. Magic can be a power which influences the world in a harmonious way producing a brilliant and positive outcome for us all.
