Artist Talk with Peter Rivera | demonstration of the process

Join us for the Septembers Second Saturday's in Westville { New Haven, ct } 

for a premier demonstration of works by Peter Rivera, In celebration of his inagreal show opening up at DaSilva Gallery.

opposing forces: images of time, rock, and release.

"Do not be trapped in here after dark,” says the guidebook. Perfect.

Over the past 10 years, being off the path in primordial places without wifi has been the preferred mode of subject. For whatever reason, I've been drawn to coordinates where vaster distances beckon beyond a glacier or dormant volcano, where one can almost hear the tick tock of deep geologic time. Very often these places bear a striking resemblance to Mars. For whatever reason, the remote, the humid, the freezing, or the down-right dangerous, have been more stimulating subjects of late. With this in mind these selections have been culled from visits to the streets of India, the remote lava fields of Iceland, the water and wind carved navajo sandstone of the American southwest, and the centuries-weathered monuments of Jordan, to name a few.

I recognize I have been lucky to work towards this accumulation of attitudes, latitudes, and longitudes and explore their beauty and impermanence. Right now, water, wind, or roots are breaking them all down, evolving them, slowly, with endless resolve. A thousand years from now all of this will be different. Now, standing in a room with them assembled they can become portals we use to pretend to be everywhere at once, and blissfully nowhere at all.

Life Mapping |  workshop with Pattie Belle Hastings

Life Mapping | workshop with Pattie Belle Hastings

July 14 th 2018 | 10-12pm

Lifemapping for Clarity, Creativity & Productivity

Join Pattie Belle Hastings for a 2-hour immersion into mapping your life and mind through a writing and visualization process that she calls Lifemapping. This exercise is similar to a Brain Dump or Mind Sweep – where we will capture EVERYTHING that is on your mind right now, get it down on paper, and make it visual. Once everything is out in front of us, we can reflect on what the patterns and information reveal in order to move from this moment into the next with clarity and confidence. As you get the hang of this process, it can be done weekly, monthly, or whenever you are feeling overwhelmed by your life. We guarantee that you will be adding this technique to your productivity toolbox!

Space is limited, kindly RSVP to PattieBelle to reserve your spot on

at the table!

•This is a donation based class. Suggested donation of $20

•All materials needed will be provided
