Manchester, NH – Practice the ancient tradition of yoga in a work of art. On Thursdays, from 10 to 11 am, beginning on July 12, and continuing through August 16, yoga classes taught by Kate from YogaBalance will be offered at the Currier Museum of Art in the Putnam Gallery, where artist Crist Rinklin has transformed the space into an imaginary landscape of color and light, with billowing cloud and meandering waterfalls forms that wrap across walls and windows.
Participants should bring a yoga mat and wear comfortable clothes. Appropriate for all levels of yoga experience. (Yoga classes will be held before the museum opens to the public for the day.)
Rinklin’s installation is part of the Currier’s Contemporary Connections series, which features new work by early- and mid-career artists from New England, made in direct response to the museum’s collection and architecture. These projects offer visitors expanded perspectives on contemporary art making and invite visitors to experience dynamic linkages between past and present art practices and cultural history.
On view through September 9, this exhibition is sponsored by Bank of New Hampshire and supported by the Gloria Wilcher Exhibition Fund and a research and publication grant from the College of the Holy Cross. Additional support provided by The McFarland Center for Religion, Ethics and Culture at the College of the Holy Cross, ICL Imaging, and Project Supporters at United States Artists Projects.
Rinklin is Associate Professor of Drawing and Painting at College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, MA and exhibits internationally. In 2010, she was awarded a Massachusetts Cultural Council Fellowship for Drawing. She is represented by Steven Zevitas Gallery, Boston.
The Currier Museum of Art is located at 150 Ash Street, Manchester, NH. Open every day except Tuesday. More information: www.currier.org or call 603.669.6144 x108.
