Yoga center hosting art exhibit

Glenmore Yoga and Wellness Center in western Henrico County is currently hosting a display of pastel paintings created by members of the Mid-Atlantic Pastel Society.

The exhibit (which includes Affirmation by Elizabeth Hood, pictured) features meditative scenes of nature as well as still life arrangements.

Glenmore Yoga has been hosting exhibits from local art organizations for about eight years and has created a network of artists with whom it works throughout the year. The artwork is displayed two months at a time.

The exhibits have been so successful that the yoga center has invested in a hanging system in order to display the paintings.This is the first exhibit by the center completely dedicated to pastels.

“Artists from all over the Mid-Atlantic, even outside of Richmond area, contribute,” said spokeswoman Sarah Hunt of Glenmore Yoga. “There are 25 framed pastels and others that are unframed. Kathleen Baker, the owner of Glenmore, asked artists to look for scenes of nature and still life.”

The students who attend Glenmore regularly started the conversation about hosting art exhibits. They began the process and are the reason why the exhibits are successful, Baker said.

“This created a great relationship between the teachers and students; now we have a network of artist that we work with,” she said.

The exhibit is free to view, and all paintings are for sale. The title, price and contact information for each artist is displayed under each painting. The paintings may be viewed during business hours (Monday through Thursday, from 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.; and Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.) at Glenmore Yoga, 10442 Ridgefield Parkway, through July 19.

Immediately follow this exhibit, one from the Virginia Collage Society Organization will go on display.
