Tahoe Yoga Shala
585 Tahoe Keys Blvd #F1A, South Lake Tahoe, CA
facebook event details

     Shelley Zentner is in the process of creating an anatomically correct drawing of every pose (asana) in the Ashtanga Yoga Primary Series. She has completed the first 30 of the 75 poses. The 30 completed drawings will be available for viewing on Sunday, November 11, 2018 from 6 to 8 pm, in an intimate setting at Tahoe Yoga Shala, located at 585 Tahoe Keys Blvd #F1A, South Lake Tahoe, CA. Wine and hors d'oeuvres will be served, and admission is free. The artworks will be available for sale with a portion of the proceeds being donated to causes they "feel connected to."

     The asana drawings will become illustrations for a training manual for yoga teachers. The 75 drawings will be completed in March 2019, in time for a 200-hour RYT Teacher Training and Mysore Style Apprenticeship that will take place at the Shala. Laura Josephy, yoga master and owner of Tahoe Yoga Shala, commissioned the art and will be present at the November 11th event to discuss the Ashtanga practice and teacher training.

     Artist Shelley Zentner accepted the challenge of creating the 75 teaching illustrations and stated, "I love drawing the human figure, and the challenge of making 75 studies felt like an extension of my own yoga practice and an opportunity to deepen my understanding of anatomy." Shelley Zentner herself is a teacher, and is currently an adjunct faculty member of the Lake Tahoe Community College Art Department.

Guy Gilmore - "The American Dream"

Opening Event Thursday, October 11, 2018 - 5 to 7 pm
Exhibit open through Fall quarter
Lake Tahoe Community College Foyer Gallery
Fine Arts Building, 1 College Drive, South Lake Tahoe, CA
facebook event details

     Local Ceramic Artist and Sculptor Guy Gilmore met with Make Tahoe to talk about his latest show, "The American Dream", opening on Thursday, October 11, 2018 from 5 to 7 pm at the Lake Tahoe Community College Foyer Gallery. Lake Tahoe Community College is located at 1 College Drive, South Lake Tahoe, California. The Foyer Gallery is located directly inside the entrance to the Fine Arts Building. "The American Dream" will be on display through the entire fall quarter. Admission is free and the exhibit is open to the public during normal business hours, which includes evenings and weekends when classes are in session.

     All of the work you will see in "The American Dream" was made locally by artist Guy Gilmore, right here at the Lake Tahoe Community College Art Department, but the message displayed is of national concern. If widespread drug addiction is due to drug abuse, what would you call abuse of capitalism through unmitigated greed? "The American Dream" exposes the dark reality of this American nightmare, the Opioid Epidemic. Gilmore has created a visually powerful exhibit of ceramic, bronze, and mixed media work to get your attention. He shares his story and message in hopes of helping others avoid the trap.
