We must hold fast to our rocks that provide us with joy in times of need.

HOLD FAST, a reflective, optimistic and uplifting exhibition of work by three female creators, artist Jane Dinmore, multidisciplinary artist Louise Gray and author/poet/performer Karen McLeod with a special culinary collaboration for the opening night by MasterChef UK winner and judge Steven Wallis.

All three artists will explore the pausing of the mind with responses to the unspoken life through language and colour. Fragments of memory and pieces of conversation spark paintings, drawings, audio, movement and written word. Interruptions and misunderstandings when trying to pause are also themes encountered in all three artist’s work.

Hold fast, be responsible, stay true and you will not only survive the storm, but you will be stronger because you made it through.
