Garry Holt: Good to Feel the Breeze of Fear
- 03 June 2015
After a suggestion that he might like to work in the medium of collage, armed with magazines, that evening Garry made his first piece of art. From that moment on he could feel his mood picking up and found that it was a great way to channel and express his inner feelings.
After 6 months hard work in rehabilitation and as Garry he was leaving hospital he was told not to give up the art practice he had cultivated. "When the dark days did return, and they do, I turned to art. It's helped me so much."
Each of the pictures created by Garry use magazine cuttings to form a world of expression, "Every picture does have a story behind it."
This is Garry's first exhibition in an art gallery, "Just look what you can achieve if you believe in yourself."
The exhibition is on display until 29 August 2015. Gallery One is the community gallery at Touchstones Rochdale and is dedicated to exhibitions by people and groups who live or work in the borough of Rochdale. The exhibitions in Gallery One are very varied, reflecting the range of interests and talent that exist in the borough. Proposals are welcome from individuals, groups and organisations and are reviewed and selected by an independent community panel.
