Artists looked to history to help stage their latest show.

The Havering Contemporary Women Artist’s exhibition, which began this week, is on the theme of past and present.

President Pauline Fynn explained: “One of our members is 90 this year. She doesn’t look it at all!

“She’s got some paintings in there from around 50 years ago, and also her present paintings. There is a little write up about her on the wall that people can read.”

Pauline’s own work on display includes a painting of Romford town crier Tony Appleton announcing the birth of Prince George last year – referring to the theme of past traditions and present events.

The exhibition is being held at the Queen’s Theatre cafe gallery, Billet Lane, Hornchurch, until April 5.

Pauline said: “We didn’t hold a preview or anything, but it looks very good. People seem to like it.”

Speaking about the cafe gallery, she added: “People are in and out all the time, it’s always busy in there”.

To view all of our pictures from the exhibition, please go to the gallery on the right.
