ABOUT 100 people attended the autumn exhibition organised by the Henley Art and Crafts Guild.

The open show was held at the Old Fire Station Gallery in Upper Market Place from Friday to Tuesday.

It featured 99 paintings and 32 sculptures created by members of the group which were for sale. Exhibition secretary Elaine Fear said: ?About a third of members had work in the exhibition.

?Fifty-two paintings were submitted and 48 were used because we had a selector to choose the pieces. With the sculptures there were probably about 70 people who had work on display. We sold about seven paintings and 10 sculptures.

?It was a really good opening night with lots of people there and everyone being very enthusiastic.?

The only pieces on show not done by members of the group were by James Hargreaves and Billy Sayers, sixth-form students at Shiplake College.

The group?s next major event is a craft exhibition which will be held at the gallery from November 27 to December 1.
