IT DOESN’T NOT WORK : EPISODE IV

That time of year is upon us here at the PF Gallery. That time of year when the inundation of emails with images of crazy surfcraft fills our inbox.

Picture Farm Gallery is pleased to announce (for the 4th time) the advent of the It Doesn’t Not Work Surf Craft Design Symposium Event of Champions.

IDNW is a surf craft exposition that explores the process of the art & craft of surf-riding design, the event aims to discuss these experimental shapes, work-in-progress projects and tried-and-true formulas. It is a time of conversation and camaraderie, good times and good razzing. Largely local to the Northeastern East Coast Coastal Neighborhood, IDNW is truly open to all geographic comers provided they can pay their own way.

The submission hotline is open.

MEDITATION SERIES AT PF GALLERY

because sundays are for rest . . .

we warmly invite you to join us for a series of late afternoon Spring meditations for moments of pause, breath & reflection.
 
Starting this Sunday,  March 19th 4-5:30.
 
Gatherings will consist of an introduction to the astrological and numerology forecast for Spring 2017, breathing exercises and observing your own light and deep breathing patterning and a warm up and down of movements of the Kundalini Yoga tradition. This workshop is designed for both the beginner and the advanced practitioner, those who are seeking an opportunity to slow down and take a moment of reflection and breathe and shed some of that Winter-ness.
 
*The first session will work to clear the first three chakras in the energetic body. We will explore themes of security, self-acceptance,  desire, creativity, personal power and commitment. 
 
*The second session will focus exclusively on the fourth chakra of the heart, known as the balance point between the higher and lower centers of the body. We will navigate the concepts of forgiveness, acceptance, and compassion for self and other.
 

*The third session will elaborate on the higher centers; chakras five through seven. We will explore topics of universal truth, intuition, and transcendence.

 

Come to one or all three offerings and sit with our beautiful community and expose yourself to the magic and essence of you.
