More than 20 portraits reveal the lives of a generation of people lived and worked in St Pancras, Kings Cross and Camden Town. The exhibition also includes more recent work by Jane, including still life studies and landscapes through the seasons.

Ahetas completes the trio of artists and is a UK based Greek painter and composer with work that ranges across two continents involving memories of Greek landscapes merged with metaphysical and mystical influences. These reflect an intuitive understanding of Nature's seasons and how different time of the year influence our changing moods, joys and hopes.
Mindfulness came naturally to Ahetaslong before it was fashionable amongst stress city dwellers. His album XAOS (in collaboration with Dubulah) was voted one of the top 10 of the year by the Guardian in 2016.
