Leventis Gallery invites the public to an afternoon of ‘Meditation with Art!’, which is inspired by the work of Stefanos Lanza, Column of the Temple of Olympian Zeus, from the Greek Collection of the Gallery.

We suggest a meditation inspired by the paintings of the A. G. Leventis Gallery. Let’s relax and allow the colours, objects and shapes, to take us on a journey to a new world - a world where the power and light of our soul, shapes our reality! It’s time to leave behind our worries and allow the magical world of art take us to new destinations.
