We have an exciting month at Gallery 50, Inc. In addition to our international art show, Yoga classes begin in the gallery on August 7 with Kay Delp, CRYT instructing. You’ll be able to relax, restore and balance your mind, body and spirit while building strength and flexibility every Tuesday at 3pm. Full information is at the end of this note — 10% discount for active gallery members.
And speaking of expanding your mind, our international show, Arte Bebo, curated by artist, Syd Krochmalny is sure to be thought provoking. It will feature 21 “cultural agents” / artists and is a sharp contrast to the show before (Miniatures) and the show after (Landscapes) at Gallery 50. It is sure to stir up a conversation. The show was originally produced for CIA, Center For Investigations On Arts in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
CIA is a training and exchange program for artists and researchers that began in 2009 http://ciacentro.org.ar/ . Every year a wide jury selects around 20 artists or researchers (artists in an expanded sense) who access clinics, courses and workshops specifically dedicated to this group.
By 2017, there were 40 courses and workshops open to the public, including those of the Master Program in Contemporary Latin American Aesthetics at the National University of Avellaneda (UNDAV) in association with CIA.
A yearly journal is also published (www.revista.ciacentro.org.ar) which to date includes six completed editions. Moreover throughout the year, numerous conferences, book launches, public talks, poetry readings, screenings, exhibitions, musicals and performances are presented in CIA’s premises.
Opening night is Friday, August 3, 2018, 6 – 9 PM. The show runs from August 1 – 31, 2018. Gallery hours are Wednesday thru Saturday, 11 AM – 4 PM.

“WISE WARRIORS” is a GALLERY 50, INC. & EASTERN SKY CO-OP collaboration with the first class on Tuesday, August 7th @ 3:00 PM at Gallery 50, Inc., 50 E. Commerce St., Bridgeton, NJ. Kay Delp, CRYT, will be leading the class.
“WISE WARRIORS” class description as per Kay Delp:
Join me in a mindful, thoughtful, strengthening 60 minutes Yoga practice that can accommodate all levels of experience and ability in the beautiful and soothing setting of Gallery 50’s exhibition room, surrounded by artists’ creations.
This slower-paced Hatha (physical) class offers gentle Yoga practice, paired with breath work at your own pace. It is designed to gradually increase your flexibility, while slowly building muscle strength through holding basic Yoga postures. There will be some simple Vinyasa flows through-out this afternoon practice to awaken the body and spirit, sprinkled with meditations to clear the mind and to release stress.
This class is perfect for those who want to experience the physical and mental benefits of Yoga, but who is unsure of where to start, or who wants to re-start their practice. Modifications will be suggested for those who have limitation of movement, and pacing of the class will be guided accordingly. For those who are more experienced, deeper expressions of the poses will be offered to further their practice and increase flexibility and strength. This is a multi-level class.
Please BYO mat…there will be only a few available. If you have blocks, or use a blanket/similar prop for your knees or to sit on, please bring them…there will be a few available. To respect others’ time, classes will begin promptly and end on time…Gallery 50 will be open 15 minutes before class start time.
