Around 235 pieces of artwork are currently hanging at St Leonard’s Church as part of the Friends of Leverington exhibition.
“We had a private viewing on Thursday night,” said church warden Kevin King.
“It went very well and it was attended by more than 50 people.
“There are all sorts of art in this exhibition. The variety is enormous.”
Friends of Leverington Church is supported by Wisbech Art Cub who lent use of the screens.
