THE ART OF ASHTANGA
Sunday, November 3rd | 5-7pm
Admission is free, and light refreshments will be served
Join us in celebration of the continued collaboration between the Tahoe Yoga Shala and local artist, Shelley Zentner. The Shala and Shelley have teamed up to create instructional fine art drawings of the Ashtanga Primary Series. Each drawing is a study of the poses that comprise the Primary Series and were used as visual guidance in the Shala’s Ashtanga Yoga Teacher Training Manual. Every drawing is an original, one-off artwork, created with charcoal on Stonehenge Archival paper.
All original drawings will be for sale. Custom prints, the Teacher Training Manual and special edition Full Primary Series charts will also be available for purchase. A percentage of the profits will be donated to local causes and charities to which we feel connected. Advance reservations of specific poses can be made by contacting Shelley at firstname.lastname@example.org. Watch time-lapse videos and learn more about the artistic process by following Shelley on Instagram @ShelleyZen. See the entire Art of Ashtanga collection on Shelley's website.
Shelley (Hocknell) Zentner is a professional artist and faculty member at Lake Tahoe Community College Art Department. Born in Wales, Great Britain, Shelley came to the United States in 2005 on a bouldering road trip, fell in love and never left. She now lives with her husband and young daughter in Christmas Valley, where she paints in her riverside studio.
Shelley’s paintings have been exhibited internationally since 1996 at venues that include The Museum Of Modern Art, Wales, The Bristol Guild of Art, and The Royal Cambrian Academy. During 2000-2005 Shelley established her own successful art gallery and open studio in her native Wales – supported and sponsored by the Prince’s Trust, The Arts Council of Wales, DMM International, The Royal Oak Hotel, and Arts & Business. Shelley had the honor of meeting art enthusiast Prince Charles in 2002. She has been a featured artist at several international mountain film Festivals in the UK, and her work toured with the prestigious Wales Drawing Bienalle. She held solo exhibitions of her work at Penrhyn Castle, The Albany Gallery, Ogilvy & Estill Contemporary Art Gallery in the UK.
Recent mixed exhibitions include the Riverside Gallery in Truckee, Ca, “We the People” at The Tahoe Mountain Lab, and “Rising from the Fire” at High Vibe Artisan Collective in South Lake Tahoe, USA.
