A new space for locally based artists to display their work has appeared in 67, Eton High Street.

The space - appropriately titled Art at 67 - is at the Eton Information Centre.

The first artist to show his work is Ron Lewandowski, retired architect and former mayor of Eton.

His work mostly comprises town and landscape paintings in acrylics concentrating on Windsor, Eton and Eton Wick, Boveney and Cliveden.

Cllr Samantha Rayner: deputy leader of the Royal Borough who represents Eton, said: “There are so many talented local artists that to have this unique opportunity to display is wonderful. Our local scenery is outstanding so it provides stunning inspiration for much local art.”

Eton's own information centre has been open a year.

Eton College and the Royal Borough made contributions to it - the college allowing the site of the former Eton Wine Shop at 67 High Street to be used, while the Royal Borough teamed with businesses and organisations in the town to fund the refurbishment.

The project had input from 200 people in the town.
