Dozens of artists contributed to the event, which finished on August 23.

Exhibition secretary Mark Juby said: “The exhibition has been very well attended and was kicked off with a great opening evening.

“The number of pieces sold has been pretty high considering the economic climate so that is very pleasing.”

In celebration of the club’s diamond jubilee, members contributed to a large canvas made up of 30 smaller pieces of work.

Mr Juby said: “We got a lot of interest in the canvas and it is going to go on permanent display now in the parish council hall.

“There was some fantastic feedback and people really seemed to like the idea.

“It was something a bit different, and measured five by three foot. Each image was of a landmark of Lancing, from the college to the churches to the beach.”
