: : : Where were her artworks displayed?
: : : Where were her artworks *being* displayed?

: : : Could anyone tell the difference?

: : : thanks
: : No difference.

I think I detect a possible slight difference. 'Where were her...' implies that the exhibition is over.

'Where were her artworks being...' Could suggest that the exhibition is still taking place.

I am not very confident about this.
