Creators of fine art in Forest Gate are looking forward to their next exhibition after a successful annual showcase of their work.
More than 70 paintings and drawings by members of the FineArt Forest Gate group were on display at The Gate library during November, with a number of artworks sold.
The fourth annual exhibition featured a mix of classic and contemporary art depicting everything from landscapes to portraits.
Artist Tonia Sagoo said: "The exhibitions are a fabulous platform which allows the artists to reach a multitude of people and to showcase and sell their artwork to visitors from near and far."
A short film about the history of the fine art classes taken by the members and showing them at work premiered on the opening night.
