Human Conditioned-Protraits by Alex Arnell @ Barnabas Arts House
Mar 12 – May 31 all-day

A long standing favourite at Barnabas is the London based artist Alex Arnell. He returns to the walls of the gallery on Tuesday 12th March with a body of new work called ‘HUMAN CONDITIONED’ and explores portraiture in a rather unconventional way!

 

Alex is well known for his street art around the area of Brick Lane in London sometimes creating pieces of sculpture from found disused objects.

There will be a piece of such sculpture to be viewed at the private view on Sunday 17th March from 2-4pm. This is a chance to meet with the artist and enjoy Barnabas hospitality.

Look forward to seeing you all!

The exhibition runs from Tues 12 March until the end of May. All works are for sale.

Don’t miss your chance of purchasing an original piece of artwork.

Keep Calm & Meditate @ Barnabas Arts House
May 29 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Why not join us at Barnabas Arts House to take time out for self-nurturing and self-growth?

Meditation practice isn’t about trying to throw ourselves away and become something better, it’s about befriending who we are.

Pema Chodron

Meditation is known to reduce stress & anxiety, improve memory & sleep and increase confidence & self-awareness. If all this was offered in a pill- would you take it? Well, there’s no pill involved – all that’s required is a chair or a cushion and YOU…

Wednesday drop-in meditation sessions are suitable for beginners and practitioners alike. Because it is a drop-in session, you can choose when to come along and give yourself what you may later consider to be the best gift of your life.

These sessions will be guided by Philomena, our resident wellbeing coach & mindfulness practitioner.

For further information ring Philomena on 07855 967558.

Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way, on purpose, in the present moment, and nonjudgmentally.
