A medieval church has provided the backdrop for more than 200 works of art.

For the 14th year, All Saints Church in Acton has been transformed into a temporary art gallery spotlighting the talents of 48 artists from across East Anglia.

The Acton Art Exhibition & Sale of framed and unframed originals and prints is running daily until September 7, with all profits from the event going towards the upkeep of the church.

Kevin Franks, is acting as ‘artist in residence’ for the fortnight, giving daily watercolour demonstrations in the church.

Co-organiser Christine Johnson said: “It differs from other exhibitions in the area because most of those are put on by local art groups showing their own work.
