The first art exhibition of work by Bedford-based South American artist Benno Bechtle received great support.
Beyond the Soul say Benno exhibit works inspired by reflections on faith and the afterlife.
Displays included oil paintings, sculptures and a video-art projection at All Nations Church in Brickhill Drive. There was also a painting performance by Benno that was accompanied by live music.
Benno, who moved to Bedford from Peru in 2000, said: “I’m thrilled to be able to share my work publicly for the first time, here in my adopted town.
“I’m now looking forward to further exhibitions in Northampton and London.”
