Sarah Ollerenshaw contributed to this exhibition by bringing the painting from her series of “At the heart of the Blue Woods”. Depicting nature at its best, using the colour of spring, Ollerenshaw is indicating the significance of meditative times. Her art may take the viewer on the journey towards the early childhood memories, reminding of the physical spaces available for refuge from the reality of everyday life.
