2nd Annual Hundred Dollar Singles

We lost two of music’s greatest artists this year, and to honor their legacy, the theme of this year’s annual order Lyrica samples Hundred Dollar Singles show is inspired by the songs, music, and artistry of David Bowie and Prince. We will feature the work of 14 artists, each with their own unique interpretations. Join us for the opening on August 5th from 6:30-9:30. This year’s event threatens to be larger, cooler, more purple, and even spacier than last year.

Meet Dan O’Neill of our New Serenity Workshops

I am thrilled that PulsePDX is partnering with Dan O’Neill, L.Ac. for our Serenity Workshops which will blend Melt, restorative stretching, and acupuncture. I first learned of Dan 4-years ago when I was going through the Melt Method training. Sue Hitzman, the creator of Melt, is a huge proponent of acupuncture and the many ways it supports the body’s natural healing abilities and works to eliminate pain. Each time Sue returned to Portland for the training she would book an appointment with Dan and then rave to her participants about her amazing acupuncture session. As a professional body worker, she has very high standards and expectations which Dan exceeded. I can confirm that the praise was very justified as he has helped me through a torn rotator cuff, knee pain, and most recently provided an amazing degree of pain relief leading up to my foot surgery.

Our first four Serenity Workshops sold out and were a huge success. We will be adding more dates starting in January. Check back for how you can reserve your spot in upcoming session!

PulsePDX Gallery Featuring “Urbanscapes”

URBANSCAPES
Beth Kerschen, Anthony Papini, Scott Erwert, Ben Friedle

Pulse PDX gallery is pleased to announce a new exhibition of artwork by 4 artists using the shared visual vocabulary of the urban landscape. While each artist has a unique point of view, their combined works hold together as a theme through their use of similar elements: explorative looseness, expressive color and texture, and a shared interest in the urban environments that surround them.

Show runs from May 30 – July 28, Opening Reception on Saturday, May 30 at 7:00pm.

About the artists:

Beth Kerschen blends architecture, urban details and fleeting moments to tell a richly layered story. Her collaged photo etchings remind us of the urban expression of a city: historic buildings, unique skylines, restored vintage signage, or an oddly painted door. Her work captures this humanity of the urban landscape. For her etchings, Beth use a polymer photogravure technique to translate photographic elements into printed form wherein several plates are combined into a single scene. The composite scenes build a narrative that represents how she experiences the world in an attempt to create a feeling of nostalgia, permanence and personality.

Anthony Papini was born in Sacramento, California in 1983. A prolific painter, Anthony’s work has been exhibited in San Francisco at Rollup Gallery, Mojie Gallery and Bocchus Gallery. He is represented in the permanent Collection at the J. David Gladstone Institutes where his painting is displayed with the works of Wayne Thiebaud. In 2011 Anthony completed a painting a day for the entire year. He has been coined as “The Painter of Traffic”.

Ben Friedle is a NY native, living in Portland, who creates natural and industrial landscapes with an expressive use of oil paints, mediums and color. He began painting in 1999 after spending a summer in Moscow and being deeply moved by the abundance of master works in every genre of art. Most comfortable on larger canvases Ben applies rhythm to the brush strokes that you can hear and see. His pieces for this show were painted as a series, where each session was a rapid sprint of freeform painting over multiple applications, without agonizing over the movements. This spirit of expression is rooted in the appreciation for improvisation, originality and musicianship. Our desire for both abundance and pristine landscapes is a paradox. Ben plans to conquer apathy with art.

Scott Erwert is a native Oregonian who lives and works in Portland. As a current member of North Coast Seed studios, he has worked and exhibited all along the West Coast, including: SFMOMA gallery, Gallery One Embarcadero, Oakland Museum of California, Ghetto Gourmet art events, CAP Art Auction, Star Wars Celebration, Comic and Pop conventions nationwide, Multnomah Arts Center, as well as various galleries and event spaces throughout Portland. He has instructed painting events at Portland Art Museum with Bottle and Bottega, and his artwork has been published by Abrams Books, Del Rey, Random House, Scholastic and Lucasfilm. Drawing on two decades of experience, his work meshes classic education and a respect of art history, with personal innovation and discovery of the world around him.

Master Class Series – Abraham Hernandez

This fall and winter, PulsePDX is proud to be hosting a series of Master Classes. What exactly does that mean, though? In Zumba-speak, these are any classes that are not part of the regular Zumba schedule. They frequently are a little longer than your average class and have something special about them such as a visiting teacher or a focus on a certain rhythm. Any licensed Zumba teacher can hold a Master Class.

At Pulse, we always want to take things a little bit farther though! We don’t want to just dance for a little longer, we want to be inspired! We want to dance with the people who are at the top of their field—the people that will make us fall in love with Zumba all over again.

With this goal in mind, we are excited to be kicking off our season of Master Classes with Zumba® Education Specialist (ZES) and International Fitness Presenter Abraham Hernandez on November 15th at 4:00pm. As a ZES, Abraham travels around a 6-state region, training and licensing new Zumba teachers in Zumba, Zumba Toning, Aqua Zumba, and Zumba Sentao. He truly is a master at what he does and he never fails to inspire with his high-energy, easy-to-follow routines.

You can learn more about Abraham at his website abrahamhernandez.zumba.com.

It is such an honor for us to host Abraham for the 3rd time and we hope you will join us in an evening of Zumba at its absolute best! Tickets are very limited, so please buy yours early to secure your spot!
