About the Event
Mindful Mornings: Yoga & Reflection is an opportunity to practice yoga in a unique setting with a focus on mindfulness. Yoga classes will take place in the gallery (before it is open to the public) surrounded by the works of Stephen Althouse.
After receiving a Fulbright Grant to participate in an artist-in-residency program in Belgium, sculptor and photographer Stephen Althouse began exhibiting his uniquely constructed photographs in museums and galleries internationally. Featuring enormous images captured between 2003 and 2017, this exhibition elevates and transforms antique tools and decorative arts into universal symbols. The monumental scale and spiritualizing compositions of these artworks reference artifacts of the past to illuminate a collective human experience that transcends time. Althouse’s work, while utilitarian in subject matter, explores spirituality and the fluidity of the human experience. Mindful Mornings: Yoga & Reflection builds upon the yogic practice of mindfulness and pairs it with the physicality expressed in Althouse’s photographs though an exhibition-inspired yoga class.
Each class will be followed by an open discussion about a different photograph from the exhibition. Mindful Mornings: Yoga & Reflection runs in two five-week sessions. Discounted pricing is offered to those registered for a full session. Advance registration required for individual classes and/or full sessions. Attendees must bring their own yoga mat. General Public: $15/Class or $60/Session; Members: $12/Class or $50/Session. Pre-Registration required.
