Where The Light Enters You: exploring loss and longing in local landscape, with words and images by Vicky Allen

Wednesday, May 1, 2024 - Sunday, June 2, 2024

This exhibition is a search for hope amidst the lament around our changing climate and how it is impacting us. From contemplating a changing landscape to noticing the small beauties found all around us, art and words combine to invite us to be attentive to our shared environment with a particular and very local focus.

The title of the exhibition is drawn from Rumi’s famous poem:

I said: what about my eyes?
He said: Keep them on the road.

I said: What about my passion?
He said: Keep it burning.

I said: What about my heart?
He said: Tell me what you hold inside it?

I said: Pain and sorrow.
He said: Stay with it. The wound is the place where the Light enters you.
