Artist Arjen Hart’s Nepal LightSeed photo show


Arjen Hart photo show — this Sunday March 12, from 2-4 pm at the Tucson Jewish Community Center. Public is invited to come enjoy the opening reception of his Nepal LightSeed photo exhibition. Arjen spent 5 weeks in Nepal last year, taking photos and experiencing Nepalese spirituality.  His website:

“Arjen van den Eerenbeemt, aka Aryen Hart, was born and raised in the Netherlands into a family of literary and visual artists. At an early age he developed an interest in the work of C.G.Jung, Yoga and meditation as well as electrical engineering. By skillfully merging technology, spirituality and the humanities into a luminous visual language his artworks become contemporary meditation objects.”

Photo exhibit ongoing March 10 to April 19 at Gallery at Tucson Jewish Community Center.

  1. Dropped by Tucson Jewish Community Center and viewed this photo exhibit once again. Don’t miss it– closing on April 19. Particularly moving are the street scenes of the Nepalese people, some of whom seem happier than rich Americans.

  2. Missed the opening reception, so stopped by today to see this show entitled “Inner Yatra: Meeting Nepal’s High Spirit on the Lightseed Path”. Exhibit focuses on street people, some praying at shrines, etc. I mostly liked one of young Buddhist monks playing a game outside in a field. Check it out daily till April 19 (except Saturdays). One of Arjen’s large white luminous oval meditation creations is also on display. Viewing this show as a little unnerving as the TJCC has had 2 anonymous bomb threats in 2 weeks, but all safe for now.
