Tarble Arts Center announces exhibitions, events | Arts and theater


CHARLESTON – The Tarble Arts Center at Eastern Illinois University has announced a few upcoming events.

Due to capacity restrictions related to COVID-19, Eventbrite reservations will be required to access all Tarble Arts Center programs. For more information on registration, visit www.eventbrite.com.

Wearing a mask is compulsory for all people, regardless of their vaccination status.

  • Sound bath with crystal bowl:

Join the Tarble to experience a sound bath in a crystal bowl led by Tyna Loafman, programmed to coincide with the cycles of the moon and promote stillness, gratitude, and reflection. It will be held from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Tuesday, January 18.

The Tarble will provide a limited number of cushions and meditation chairs on a first come, first served basis. You can bring your own yoga mat or cushion to sit on if you wish. The Tarble maintains a temperature-controlled environment, so you may want to bring a sweater or scarf to warm up.

Participants are encouraged to arrive between 5 p.m. and 5:15 p.m. to get settled. The doors will be locked and the sound bath will begin at 5:30 p.m. and last approximately 45 minutes. This event is free and open to the public. No previous experience is necessary.
