A REDDITCH artist is thrilled after an excellent start to an exclusive art exhibition of his work.

Laurence Cremetti’s exhibition will be running at Le Bel Artist fine art gallery in Chipping Campden until December 15.

Mr Cremetti, whose family were responsible for the original formation of the National Art Fund (The Eugene Cremetti Fund), gave up his work as a psychiatric nurse and therapist due to his wife’s ongoing illness, and set up a photographic and digital art business in Lakeside.

He works as a commercial photographer with businesses large and small, and is the staff photographer of the exhibition arm of the Bible Society.

A total of 40 years of camera and darkroom practise have come together now in this first formal exhibition of his work.
