What To Do This Weekend

Friday 6th - Sunday 8th October

Wondering how to spend your precious two days off? Let SheerLuxe be your guide in our What To Do This Weekend round-up.

SEE THIS: Abigail Yentis: Solo Exhibition Private View

Catch London-based artist Abigail Yentis’ ethereal exhibition, The Shadows of a Dream, which captures imaginative and surreal visions of the human body, beyond the human shell. Each painting draws you into her fantastical world of texture and colour, where she pushes boundaries and gently moves into a dark, unknown world outside the comfort of everyday life.

No Such Place, 68A Neal Street, Soho, WC2H 9PA, 10th October, 7pm-11pm, RSVP to [email protected] to book your place
