Art exhibit at Gosport Gallery will showcase the work of 20 artists in a bid to raise funds for Solent Mind mental health charity
The Yellow Edge Gallery is expected to host the Unhooked exhibit later this year.
Organized and managed by Dale Lodge of Mernpunk Alternative Interiors, the exhibit will provide a platform for artists to raise awareness and understand mental health issues within the community.
Artists Tom Fry, Laura Greenway, Clarke Reynolds, Ashleigh Spice, Adam Riches and Jazmine Saunders will present their work, which explores themes ranging from grief, anxiety, insomnia, PTSD and depression, to living with blindness, autism and other disabilities.
The exhibit also aims to raise funds for the mental health charity Solent Mind.

Dale said: “We have set ourselves the goal of raising £ 5,000, which will be divided into two sections.
“The first part is to cover the non-profit rental costs of the gallery of £ 1,000 for the duration of the exhibition, so that all artists can exhibit without having to find the funds to allow them to do so.
“The rest of our target amount is to fundraise for Solent Mind.”
Organizations are given the option of sponsoring an artist’s £ 50 exhibition fee, contributing to the fundraising goal, or donating directly to the charity.
Event sponsors will see their company name featured in exhibition documentation, as well as on event social media and web platforms.
The Unhooked exhibit will be held October 9-17.
