WITH dozens of works of art on show, the 15th annual Art in the Aisles event has been hailed as a great success.

The exhibition at St James Church in Birdham showed off the efforts of 46 local artists in a variety of mediums and themes.

Organiser Sallie Drew said: “Art from all the classes at Birdham C of E Primary School was also on show, demonstrating there is a good supply of artists for the future.

“Despite the damp weather, attendances were good – about 400 people visited the exhibition and more than 45 works of art were sold. A total of £580 was raised. Many thanks to all who supported this event.”

Proceeds will go to the St James Extension Fund to help build a two-storey extension to the church.
