An organisation which has been promoting art since 1946 has launched a virtual gallery aimed at collectors who do not want to break the bank.
The Hampstead Artists Council (HAC), which claims to be Camden’s oldest arts organisation, has created a website where Hampstead artists can easily exhibit prints at affordable prices.
The works, some of which feature scenes of Hampstead life including HAC chairman Gillian Lawson’s depictions of Flask Walk and The Holly Bush pub, are all priced between £50 and £150.
Professional artist Ms Lawson said: “The website is a fantastic opportunity to promote art in Hampstead and encourage both amateur and professional artists to get involved and sell their work.
“Hampstead has a rich tradition of art and creativity and the website is a way of continuing that tradition into the 21st century.”

HAC secretary Gemma Jones said: “It’s a really good opportunity for people with a bit of talent to have a go and for buyers, it doesn’t break the bank.”
