Susan Webb and Kenneth Webb are fortunate to have an exhibition in London at W.H.Pattersons paintings of Susan Webb and W.H.Pattersons paintings of Kenneth Webb during the Olympic period. This is a wonderful opportunity and the exhibition will open on the 16th of July and run through the Olympics with the huge amount of visitors. Anyone wishing an invitation to the opening can write to us and we will be pleased to send an invitation. Patterson's is a exceptional gallery in the heart of the West End with a long history and run by some very nice people. If you can not make the opening, do stop into the Gallery and Glenn Fuller and the staff will always be most helpful.
