Ealing Autumn Festival’s Magna Carta turns 800 painting exhibition is on its final leg of a journey around libraries in the borough.

The exhibition launched in June at Ealing Central Library and since then has been on display at various venues as part of this year’s festival, which is celebrating the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta as its theme.

Greenford Library and West Ealing (digitised version) are the final stopping points for the popular exhibition until November 21, with 26 paintings based on the coats-of-arms of the 25 Magna Carta barons and King John on display.

The exhibition is designed and organised by Diana Braybrook, a practicing artist in west London, and tutor to the 4020 Art Group. The 26 group members have each contributed a painting to the event which is inspired by the vibrant colours of medieval stained glass and the highly decorative illuminated manuscripts of the period.

From November 23 – December 5 there will be additional presentations of the exhibition at community centres in the borough.
See or ask at your library for more details.
