'Smile' is a collaborative group show displaying works in various media including acrylic, oil, photography, new media and installation. The exhibition 'Smile' aims to act as a cultural antidote to the recent global depression, natural disasters and a general mood of despondency. Smiling is a universal act, yet there have not been many reasons to do so lately. In the greater scheme of things one often forgets the little moments in life that make us smile and thus happy.

This forthcoming exhibition aims to challenge people to step out of their busy consumer driven life styles to take a split second to 'stop and stare' and to hold the moment and smile: here the true sense of smiling is in store not the 'fake' one so often dished out without meaning.

The art work shown portrays subtlety rather than shock value seen in recent mainstream exhibitions, the latter tending to alienate, rather than involve, the viewer.

Each artist participating in this show has their own way to express happiness and this exhibition demonstrates that no matter where one comes from, one can always find a reason to smile. With a feeling of anticipation, we hope that who ever visits 'Smile' will walk out with a smile, perpetuating a 'feel good factor'; well, at least for a brief moment…..
