Praxis Alternative Yoga Classes & Figure Drawing

Free

Wednesday, October 17, 2018. 7pm – 8pm

@ The Centennial Lodge 

“The process by which a theory, lesson, or skill is enacted, embodied, or realized. ‘Praxis’ may also refer to the act of engaging, applying, exercising, realizing, or practicing ideas.” – Feminist Family Theory Flashcards 

Essentially, Praxis means practice. The artistic practice and yoga practice share the common methodology of examining, processing, and transforming the lived experience into creative self-expression. The Gallery at Queen’s Park’s is celebrating this commonality by creating a shared space for art forms and yoga through Praxis

Praxis invites artists to practice figure drawing of consenting yoga class participants. This supports barrier-free access for members to practice drawing the human figure in dynamic poses, in a positive and engaging environment. This unique offering explores an understanding of the human body as a form as well as a tool. Each class will also include a post-class social where participants can connect over food or drinks from local businesses. In an effort to increase space for self-care that supports physical and mental health, provide access to figure drawing, and build community, The Gallery at Queen’s Park is partnering with The Green Channel to offer this barrier-free monthly event in which instructors Jenni Higgins or Hillary Keegan will be leading a sensory experience that unites yoga, dance and movement, sound, and visual art.

Jenni Higgins teaches yoga across the New Westminster and Burnaby area and is the owner of MOVE Yoga.Pilates.Dance Studio in New Westminster and a Lululemon Ambassador for the Burnaby/New Westminster community.

Hillary Keegan teaches yoga across the Burnaby and New Westminster area as well and is an Alumni Lululemon Ambassador, Mala Collective Ambassador, Spiritual Gangster Ambassador, SUP Yoga, Van-Mermaid Ambassador, VEGA; Kings Island & Sage Advocate.

Lululemon Metrotown Our vision for our store is to create more than a place where people could get gear to sweat in, we want to create a community hub where people could learn and discuss the physical aspects of healthy living, mindfulness and living a life of possibility. It is also important for us to create real relationships with our guests and understand what they were passionate about, how they like to sweat and help them celebrate their goals. Today, we do this in our stores around the globe.

Gallery Sessions featuring La Modestine

Wednesday January 30, 2019
6:30-8:00pm
Tickets: $30+services charges
Available through Eventbrite: gallerysessions.eventbrite.ca

From the Düben Collection: Music that deserves to be heard

The extraordinary Düben Collection contains over 2,000 manuscripts of 17th and early-18th century music by more than 300 European composers, collected by members of the Düben family and donated to Uppsala University in 1732. The collection is thought to include the music library of the Royal Swedish Court, where four of the Dübens served as kapellmeisters from 1640 to 1726.

La Modestine (Marc Destrubé and Linda Melsted, violins, Natalie Mackie, viola da gamba, and Michael Jarvis, harpsichord and organ) will perform a selection of rarely-heard gems from the collection, including sonatas by Buxtehude, Becker and Reincken.

Seth Macbeth

Creative Collage Workshop: Sunday, October 14, 1:00 – 5:00pm

One of the most important lessons Seth Macbeth has learned as an artist is that you have to be brave. When it comes to creativity, many people feel that is it doesn’t come naturally, that they will never possess the skills or talent to create art. To prove this wrong, Seth Macbeth’s Inter/action session will host a Creative Collage Workshop. The workshop runs from 1pm-5pm, for the duration of the gallery hours, and allows gallery visitors of all ages to approach and explore creativity, and makes collages they can be proud of. Anyone can be an artist, and the first step is to be brave!

The Workshop will begin with a short introduction to the elements of design – line, shape, space, and balance – with examples of work. Then will follow three 5-minute exercises that push people to trust their instincts and be brave with their choices. Three 4” x 6” collage cards are created in this time. Using the methods from these exercises, the class will then do three more 5-minute exercises based on different themes. Each person leaves the workshop with six completed works of art, and the courage to take risks and explore creativity!
