Christmas Greetings.



Wishing all my friends and customers a Happy Christmas.

Here is a chance for you to be entered into a Free prize draw to win the only signed proof copy of my 2017 Calendar. All you have to do is “like” the photo of me with the proof below, or on the Butterworth Gallery FaceBook page. Closing time is midnight 07.01.17. The winner will be notified by 10th Jan 2017. We will send a regular A4 calendar too, as I think this may be more useful!

Good luck to all those that enter, however there can only be one winner!

Best wishes for a safe and prosperous 2017.
