Welcome to our Exhibition

Art to make you think.

Group of People in Art Exhibit
Four Paintings on Wall

The exhibition is a showcase to explore the issues around climate change and pollution, to stimulate conversations across the generations.  A poem, Yesterday, written by Yorkshire-based poet David Powley, was the inspiration for this exhibition.  Jane Harding, a Ludlow-based artist, has created and developed the concept.  The exhibition brings together works of art, film, creativity and conversations to explore what needs to be done today so that the younger generations have a future.  Each work of art tells a unique story and invites you to explore the depths of artistic expression.


by David Powley

Yesterday, today

was still tomorrow.

How could we tell

that the new day

would bring such sorrow?

When all promises fade

and ill-judged debts

must be paid

before the final bell?

Time has a way

of warping overnight,

snuffing out the light

for those who borrow

and never pay

for what they sell.

For our children’s sake

let us not sleep

through the guilt,

but with them break

habit’s toxic hold,

so then the story may

tomorrow be told,

of how we built

a new today


A recording of Yesterday read by children of the next generation who will inherit our legacy.

The exhibition is a true celebration of art inspired by David’s thought-provoking poem. The paintings are not just visually stunning, but they also evoke deep emotions and leave a lasting impression. It's a must-visit for anyone who appreciates the power of art.


This all looks fantastic, very interesting and motivating.

Well done and good luck.
