Helen, who died of cancer in May aged 66, lived in the town for 35 years.

The show has been organised by Helen’s friends and fellow painters as a tribute. The artwork on sale will range from £5 to £200 with suggested donations.

Close friend, Inger O’Meara said “We uncovered a treasure trove of art in Helen’s studio and immediately knew we should put on an exhibition, a wonderful opportunity for family and friends to see her work, some of it for the first time, and to keep a piece of her art.”

On show will be a wide range of work from large abstract oil paintings to detailed still life studies, mono-prints and photographs. Many of the pictures are framed and the collection will include sketch books and framed collages.

Saturday, October 14 from 1pm to 4pm and Sunday, October 15 from 11am to 2pm at the Catholic Church Hall, Castle Street, Saffron Walden.
