Blog : Jeannie Griffin-Peterka Art Exhibition at Zev Yoga Studio

By Corey | Jan 29, 2015 | in

Portsmouth-based painter Jeannie Griffin-Peterka will be displaying her talents in the Drift Gallery's collaborative space for their January 4 - March 30 exhibition, at Zev Yoga Studio (16 Market Square, above Breaking New Grounds) in Portsmouth, NH. About her work, Griffin-Peterka states "“I start by putting color on the canvas, drawing with charcoal or paint, adding layers of paint and soon something will begin to emerge. I turn the canvas constantly so that it’s worked from all directions. I only decide at the end, which way it should hang. I’m currently working with multiple panels and joining them together in the back. I like seeing the energy between the panels and the sharp line made from joining the panels. There is nothing more exciting to me than seeing one or more freshly stretched canvases hanging on my studio wall and wondering what the final painting will look like.“

Zev Yoga Studio is known for using their studio as a community space, offering it for educational events and workships in addition to art exhibitions. Zev emphasizes a traditionally-rooted, holistically-minded approach to yoga which promotes overall health - the "sustainability" of the individual. The result is improved circulation, a light and strong body, and a calm mind. 

This contemporary curatorial collaboration features local, national and international artists with rotating exhibitions each month in the yoga studio. Public artist receptions will coincide with the popular First Friday Art ‘Round Town art walk. Artwork can be viewed by attending the public opening reception, by appointment, online or attending any of the regularly scheduled yoga classes. All works are available for purchase.
