Saturday, July 13, 4:00 – 6:00pm
Free opening reception with Gentle Yoga and Artist Talk
Please join us for an opening reception of Shannon Bronson’s “Twilight Drawings” which will be enjoyed at Bernal Yoga from July through September. Come for an early evening of gentle yoga, an artist talk and refreshments.
Artist Statement: The Twilight Drawings are my investigation, each piece explores a sutra or concept I’ve engaged. These drawings were done in the years that I first discovered Yoga through the lens of Buddhism. I spent my days practicing and teaching yoga and studying the Yoga Sutra with my teachers, meditating and listening to hours and hours of teachings on Tibetan Buddhism. The intricacy of the line work captures the intensity of my study and represents hours of practice and reflection on those ideas. My investigations, in turn, drape the drawings in “Twilight.” They hint at the symbolism in the yogic teachings. The artwork is the vessel for my concentration on a teaching or a mantra or represents a flash of insight gained along the path.You can learn more at www.shannonbronsonyoga.com/twilightdrawings.com.
