Art Barter joined the Strummer of Love festival in Somerset in August 2012. Exhibiting artworks by music related artists inspired by the late Joe Strummer, the public was able to bid on the art works using anything except money. The works will be exhibited on a double decker bus turned gallery designed by pop artist Sir Peter Blake with CCA Galleries.
