AN ART show with a difference is opening at Bethnal Green Library.
Artists Sol Archer, Kieran Drury, Sarah McNulty, Alaena Turner have spent a week in the former lecture hall and reading room upstairs in the library in Cambridge Heath Road.
Sarah McNulty said that the mixed media show featuring paintings, photos, projections and objects placed around the room has been inspired by the space.
She said: "It's about shifting landscapes."

The show is called Tilsandede, from a Danish word meaning 'covered over in sound'.
Ms McNulty said the group have enjoyed working in the library. "I just stumbled on this space, it's really nice to show art works here. The light is different from an art gallery and the show is quite minimal with some subtle interventions and very small projections."
