As children we believe that all things are possible. We are allowed wild and fantastic imaginations. Pretending is permitted. And then we grow and are told to face reality. We are asked to suspend our belief in the possibility that dreams do come true, that we can achieve and experience great things so easily. It is a hard and difficult world. I ask you, for a moment, to spread your wings again, to have the courage to believe in the magic and mystery of childhood when you flew with faeries and super-heroes. We can create wonder and goodness by opening ourselves, by being aware - and by taking fearless action. "Temptation to Fly" is an exhibition that asks you to defy the convention of caution and return to a time when fantasies felt real. Dreams do come true.
Art has the power to transform our lives, the way we see the world and how we interact with one another. I hope it brings you joy and inspiration.
