In January 2022 Tom’s wife was hit by a lorry whilst cycling to teach medicine at a London university. The injuries she sustained were transformative.
One Step At A Time is an exhibition in response to this, made up of paintings, drawings, sculpture and photographs connected by text. It tells the story of the incident and explores themes that have emerged in its aftermath; The experience of a body transformed, ideas around disability, and support during crisis.
“By showing these personal pieces I am able to tell a story which is universal in its message; that we all encounter unexpected and life changing events, and responding to them creatively is beneficial and important for our understanding and recovery.” Tom Berry
Physical Access: The Lewisham Arthouse has step free access, an accessible toilet and seating.

24th April 2024

The exhibition will be open daily 24 April and 7 May at The Lewisham Art House, between 12 noon-6pm.
The preview will be on 24 April, from 6 to 9pm, with live harp music by Shye Charles.

Palvinder Nangla’s upcoming exhibition at the Lewisham Art House will offer viewers an enchanting delight and an insight into how he expresses himself through embroidery art.

Inspired by the notion of the traditional theme of dowry, Antenna will be an exhibition of 40 antennas as if each of them were a piece of an Indian wedding dowry; the 20 days and 20 nights of a traditional wedding are expressed in the 40 pieces that are a delicate presentation of lunéville embroidery techniques.

Using embroidery he mastered in his studies in Paris, Palvinder enters a meditative state of mind, connecting with the fact that nothing is ever permanent, always in motion, moving back and forth, like the movements between positive and negative, or black and white. The pieces then become a focus for clarity and calm, like the items of a dowry, important, nostalgic, meaningful and grounding.


The Project Space is run with the aim of providing affordable exhibition space and a platform for emerging artists, community groups and those who have been unable to find support/space through traditional gallery routes. In doing this we hope to provide a vibrant program of exhibitions for our local community, creating an opportunity for people to enjoy, discuss and engage with contemporary art in an informal and accessible setting. Alongside the program of hire shows we also facilitate larger projects and residencies that focus on our core aims of outreach and community engagement. We are always interested to hear from local artists, curators and community groups with proposals for larger projects or who are interested in forming creative partnerships with the Arthouse.
Lewisham Arthouse is committed to ensuring our Project Space is accessible for anyone to hire. We acknowledge that social barriers may influence participation in, and enjoyment of the arts. In an effort to address this in our local communities, our application process is open to everyone, regardless of age or educational background. We particularly welcome applications from non-white, Black, Asian and minority ethnicity individuals and groups.
