OUR WEEKLY NEWSLETTER: 24th- 30th October

All aboard the Harpy houseboat on the River Thames for a night of Music, Art & story telling…..all within sight of Tower bridge !
Solo retrospective exhibit of Emma Watkinson’s beautiful Visionary oil paintings & Lightboxes.
Emma & Fiachna O’Brien will lead us on a storytelling journey, bringing alive the mythology of her paintings. From the banks of the River Ganga, to the banks of the river Nile. From the Kings of Ancient Egypt to their origins in the stars. Embark upon the heros journey, travel through the sacred geometry of the elements , meet the archetypes of the Tarot in the quest for the Grail.
Emma´s work is inspired by esoteric study, travel and cultural explorations into Kabbalah, Tarot, Buddhism, Yoga, & Druidry. She has exhibited & toured internationally for the past 9 years, spending some time in apprenticeship with Ernst Fuchs founder of Fantastic Realism in Vienna.www.emanations.co.uk. Many of Emmas paintings are inspired by delving deep within Shamanic journeys & spiritual work.
World renowned Bansuri player ( Low pitched Indian clasical flute) and sacred sound artist Jason Kalidas brings a sound bath in Indian Raagas and analog electronica soundscapes to the event. Indian Raagas originate in an ancient system of sacred music, Raagas are improvised musical entities each with a specific emotional frequency and narrative . Jason Kalidas has trained in Indian classical music in the sacred city of Varanasi since 1996. http://www.jasonkalidas.com/
