Knott_image1HI Arts Council
Opening Reception: August 1st, 7pm
Tom Knott and Reina LeBaron Retrospective
July 29th-August 10th Tuesday-Sunday 11-4pm

Tom and Reina have been working together as model and photographer since 2002. Their work is collaborative, spontaneous and in the moment. Their HIAC show is a retrospective from the 500+ finished works that they have created together. The photographs feature Reina, breathtaking shots of Hornby’s forest and coast, the earth, galaxies, nebulae, images of the works of other artists and religious symbols. The deep intention of Tom and Reina’s work is to show the essential unity of the World and of the life of the Earth. Similarly intentioned is Reina’s poetry which we are delighted will be featured in this show. Because of the prolific nature of their work, on August 5th Tom and Reina will do a partial rotation of the pieces displayed to create a wholly different show. So make sure to come at least twice to check out what will surely be a beautiful show of many works!

HIAC is located in the woods behind the Credit Union. Please follow our signage with arrows and look for the little white building in the trees.

Island Yoga with Jennifer Armstrong @ Sandpiper Beach
Jul 31 @ 9:00 am – 10:30 am

yogajennifer began her yoga journey here on hornby 25 years ago. And her life & practice have been informed by many different teachers & traditions over the years. Perhaps none more than S.N. Goenka, from whom she has learned Vipassana meditation at dozens of silent retreats over the years. In her years of practice, she has found yoga can inspire us to move towards a deeper, richer understanding of ourselves & our connection with the world around us. Her classes are rooted in that discovery. In the busyness of our days, yoga is a way to come home, to connect to our own strength & vitality, our innate, inner wisdom, a pool of quietude & connectedness.

Over the last 10 years, jennifer’s teaching style has become a wonderful infusion of traditions, with deep roots in the Iyengar teachings of precision & alignment, animated with flowing vinyasa practices inspired by ashtanga & Pattabi Jois. Her classes are lively & spirited. This heartfelt combination of precise alignment & inward focus, blended with her natural enthusiasm, create a way to safely discover joy and ease in the practice.

jennifer teaches her summer classes on the meadow above Sandpiper beach. Reaping the benefits of grounding to the earth while being recharged by the ocean air. She invites you to step away from walls & floors, electricity, phones, the busyness of your day. Come & practice tree pose amongst the trees, eagle with the eagles & feel your body rest fully connected to the natural world & the earth beneath you in savasana.
