Gallery Show: A Narrative, Rewritten

Date: Saturday February 1, 2020 through Sunday March 29, 2020.
Time: All Day Event
Location: Umbrella Gallery
Address: 2803 Taylor St. Dallas, Tx 75226
Price: Free
Category: Arts / Exhibits
A new solo exhibition show from artist Hannah Aaron.

Statement from the artist:
Blessed be the LORD, my rock, who trains my hands for war, and my fingers for battle; Psalm 144:1

My work is about reclaiming my feminine identity which had been previously shaped by societal pressures and experiences from childhood. I danced for nine years in ballet classes, which now serves as the source imagery for my oil paintings. As a young girl, I struggled with feeling good enough. The treatment of the slippers in my paintings are evocative of the obsessive perfectionism, crippling anxiety, and overwhelming pressure I felt in my youth. My affiliation between perfection, performance and intrinsic value followed me into adulthood, clouding my perspective of femininity. Describing boxing gloves serve as a counter perspective, sourced from Biblical scriptures. In a way, painting them serve as a form of therapy, prayer, and declaration of self-worth to my present reality. For me, the fight is not a physical one, but a spiritual and mental one. My fight looks rewriting the narrative of my past and agreeing with Gods thought towards me, which is this: I am valuable. And that will never change. Painting from life is important to me. When I paint from a still life arrangement or a figure model, my interaction with the object or person keeps my thoughts in the present moment, rather than dwelling on the past. The application of my paintings include areas of refinement, nuances in cast shadows and reflected light, as well as expressive line work, dry brush and thick impasto.

Allyson Packer: Sounding

Date: Friday February 7, 2020 through Sunday March 29, 2020.
Time: Times Vary
Location: The Hawn Gallery at the Hamon Arts Library, Southern Methodist University
Address: 6100 Hillcrest Ave, Dallas, TX 75275
Price: Free
Category: Arts / Exhibits
There are three ways to measure a body of water: by surface area, volume, or depth. Sounding is the term used to describe this last method. Unlike assessing a visible surface area, sounding is an act of remote sensing. It allows you to gather information on something you cant make physical contact with. The contents in a library are like a body of water. It holds a volume of material within a clearly defined space, while also possessing a kind of impalpable depth.

In Sounding, Packer uses text and sculptural interventions to explore the relationship between the librarys known and unknowable qualities. Through this artwork, the Hawn Gallery and Hamon Arts Librarys tangible architectural spaces become a framework to plumb the immeasurable depths of knowledge the building contains.

Allyson Packer makes artwork that engages viewers in examining the myths and values embedded in the built environment. Her installations and performances have been shown at Nahmad Projects (London), Hyde Park Art Center (Chicago), and Birds + Richard (Berlin), among other venues. Her upcoming solo exhibition, Inland Sea, will open at the Las
Cruces Art Museums Brannigan Cultural Center in July 2020. Packer earned her MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and her BFA from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She lives in Denton, Texas, where she is a faculty member in the College of Visual Arts and Design at the University of North Texas.

World Bhakti Yoga Festival featuring Sean Johnson & The Wild Lotus Band

Date: Friday February 28, 2020 through Sunday March 1, 2020.
Time: Times Vary
Location: Westside Wellness Dallas
Address: 4711 Westside Dr.
Price: FREE - $170
Category: Festival
The Dallas yoga community is preparing for something special this leap year weekend. The first World Bhakti Festival takes place Feb. 28, 29 and March 1 at Westside Wellness. The festival includes a free admission fair on Saturday with local vendors, healers and plant-based food and drinks, as well as a variety of free traditional yoga and meditation classes, and education workshops. However, the main focus of the festival, as the name implies, is Bhakti, the yoga of devotion.

This is the first yoga festival of its kind in Texas. Whats more, its open to people of all ages, all abilities, all religions, and all socio-economic levels. So, its a good opportunity, regardless of your connection to Bhakti Yoga. Especially given the diverse offerings, affordability and comfortable venue.

According to one of the three World Bhakti co-founders, Lavanga Latika Devi Dasi, Bhakti is inherent in traditions all over the world. Its actually the string that holds religious traditions all together. The heart of Bhakti is learning to see how we are actually more alike than different. When we sing in Kirtan - musical expression of Bhakti- there is no us and them. By awakening our relationship to the Divine, we can then see how we are all children coming from the same source.

Bhakti has been gaining steam across the U.S. along with the rise in the spiritual but not religious population. Bhakti festivals are popping up across the U.S., in part fueled by peoples love for music. At the Bhakti festivals, devotion is primarily expressed through the form of Kirtan music. Basically, chanting of the holy name, prayers and mantras, swaying and even ecstatic dancing to the beat of the drums or electric guitar.

Visitors can attend the entire weekend. Or, register for specific days or events.

An Inner Space Journey: Yoga Nidra Meditation & Gong Bath

Date: Saturday February 29, 2020
Time: 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Location: Unity of Dallas
Address: 6525 Forest Lane,Dallas, TX, 75230
Price: Single $20 Couple $45
Category: Spiritual
Yoga Nidra Meditation is an exploration of inner space; the mind is active and exploring while the physical body is completely relaxed and still. The inner work is guided, taking the practitioner to a state between waking and sleeping, between dreaming and lucidity.
A Gong Bath is a form of sound therapy that supports deep meditation, self-healing, deep rest, and the release of tension, stress, and strain. Together, Yoga Nidra and the Gongs create a unique environment for inner work and rejuvenation of the body, mind, and spirit!
This Inner Space Journey is the perfect experience for people who cant meditation. The Yoga Nidra narrative guides you to the depths of your consciousness as the gongs provide a rising and falling curtain of sound that wraps you in an acoustic wave front which acts on every cell in the body.
For the experienced meditator, Yoga Nidra Meditation provides access to the hypnagogic state, that brain state between waking and sleeping, that time when the brain waves are transitioning from active to quiet wakefulness to deep meditation. And there, on the edge of sleep, the Yoga Nidra practitioners conscious and subconscious minds synchronize and freely communicate.
This Inner Space Journey begins with light movement to calm the body, then participants lay down, flat on their backs supported with blankets and pillows. (It may be done seated, but complete physical relaxation is important to the experience.) Once settled and comfortable, the Yoga Nidra guidance and the Gong bath begin. The experience runs for 50-60 minutes.
Bring sleeping bags, blankets and pillows to ensure your comfort. Call Lynne at 972-890-1031 with questions.

Gallery Show: A Narrative, Rewritten

Date: Saturday February 1, 2020 through Sunday March 29, 2020.
Time: All Day Event
Location: Umbrella Gallery
Address: 2803 Taylor St. Dallas, Tx 75226
Price: Free
Category: Arts / Exhibits
A new solo exhibition show from artist Hannah Aaron.

Statement from the artist:
Blessed be the LORD, my rock, who trains my hands for war, and my fingers for battle; Psalm 144:1

My work is about reclaiming my feminine identity which had been previously shaped by societal pressures and experiences from childhood. I danced for nine years in ballet classes, which now serves as the source imagery for my oil paintings. As a young girl, I struggled with feeling good enough. The treatment of the slippers in my paintings are evocative of the obsessive perfectionism, crippling anxiety, and overwhelming pressure I felt in my youth. My affiliation between perfection, performance and intrinsic value followed me into adulthood, clouding my perspective of femininity. Describing boxing gloves serve as a counter perspective, sourced from Biblical scriptures. In a way, painting them serve as a form of therapy, prayer, and declaration of self-worth to my present reality. For me, the fight is not a physical one, but a spiritual and mental one. My fight looks rewriting the narrative of my past and agreeing with Gods thought towards me, which is this: I am valuable. And that will never change. Painting from life is important to me. When I paint from a still life arrangement or a figure model, my interaction with the object or person keeps my thoughts in the present moment, rather than dwelling on the past. The application of my paintings include areas of refinement, nuances in cast shadows and reflected light, as well as expressive line work, dry brush and thick impasto.

Allyson Packer: Sounding

Date: Friday February 7, 2020 through Sunday March 29, 2020.
Time: Times Vary
Location: The Hawn Gallery at the Hamon Arts Library, Southern Methodist University
Address: 6100 Hillcrest Ave, Dallas, TX 75275
Price: Free
Category: Arts / Exhibits
There are three ways to measure a body of water: by surface area, volume, or depth. Sounding is the term used to describe this last method. Unlike assessing a visible surface area, sounding is an act of remote sensing. It allows you to gather information on something you cant make physical contact with. The contents in a library are like a body of water. It holds a volume of material within a clearly defined space, while also possessing a kind of impalpable depth.

In Sounding, Packer uses text and sculptural interventions to explore the relationship between the librarys known and unknowable qualities. Through this artwork, the Hawn Gallery and Hamon Arts Librarys tangible architectural spaces become a framework to plumb the immeasurable depths of knowledge the building contains.

Allyson Packer makes artwork that engages viewers in examining the myths and values embedded in the built environment. Her installations and performances have been shown at Nahmad Projects (London), Hyde Park Art Center (Chicago), and Birds + Richard (Berlin), among other venues. Her upcoming solo exhibition, Inland Sea, will open at the Las
Cruces Art Museums Brannigan Cultural Center in July 2020. Packer earned her MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and her BFA from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She lives in Denton, Texas, where she is a faculty member in the College of Visual Arts and Design at the University of North Texas.

World Bhakti Yoga Festival featuring Sean Johnson & The Wild Lotus Band

Time: Times Vary
Location: Westside Wellness Dallas
Address: 4711 Westside Dr.
Price: FREE - $170
Category: Festival
The Dallas yoga community is preparing for something special this leap year weekend. The first World Bhakti Festival takes place Feb. 28, 29 and March 1 at Westside Wellness. The festival includes a free admission fair on Saturday with local vendors, healers and plant-based food and drinks, as well as a variety of free traditional yoga and meditation classes, and education workshops. However, the main focus of the festival, as the name implies, is Bhakti, the yoga of devotion.

This is the first yoga festival of its kind in Texas. Whats more, its open to people of all ages, all abilities, all religions, and all socio-economic levels. So, its a good opportunity, regardless of your connection to Bhakti Yoga. Especially given the diverse offerings, affordability and comfortable venue.

According to one of the three World Bhakti co-founders, Lavanga Latika Devi Dasi, Bhakti is inherent in traditions all over the world. Its actually the string that holds religious traditions all together. The heart of Bhakti is learning to see how we are actually more alike than different. When we sing in Kirtan - musical expression of Bhakti- there is no us and them. By awakening our relationship to the Divine, we can then see how we are all children coming from the same source.

Bhakti has been gaining steam across the U.S. along with the rise in the spiritual but not religious population. Bhakti festivals are popping up across the U.S., in part fueled by peoples love for music. At the Bhakti festivals, devotion is primarily expressed through the form of Kirtan music. Basically, chanting of the holy name, prayers and mantras, swaying and even ecstatic dancing to the beat of the drums or electric guitar.

Visitors can attend the entire weekend. Or, register for specific days or events.

The course goes beyond explaining basic DRG classification. Coders leave class ready to:

Apply inpatient coding guidelines
Accurately assign ICD-10-CM/PCS codes and MS-DRGs
Query physicians more effectively
Were not like other coding classes. We have been teaching inpatient coding for more than a decade! The Certified Coder Boot Camp - Inpatient Version uses a successful and proven method for teaching inpatient coding fundamentals:

Emphasis on hands-on exercises: Attendees complete multiple inpatient case studies and operative reports based on real medical records so they fully understand the impact of diagnosis/procedure code assignment on MS-DRG assignment.

Immediate feedback: Our instructors provide real-time feedback on the codes you assign. Continuous interactions with instructors ensure you have a complete understanding of code assignment.

Rules-based learning: Our instructors only use recognized source authorities, such as the Official Guidelines for Coding and Reporting and the AHAs Coding Clinic for ICD-10-CM/PCS, in course materials.

Experience: All of our instructors have at least 15 years of inpatient coding experience. They know exactly what coders need to learn and how to present complex coding topics in an easy-to-understand manner.

The Certified Coder Boot Camp -Inpatient Version not only teaches you everything you need to know to be an inpatient coder, but also provides several professional benefits:

Enhance your career potential and growth - employers are looking for coders with accurate inpatient coding skills
Take on more complex medical coding cases
Increase your professional credibility
Become a valuable resource to your facility
For employers:

Coder training is an important investment for your organization. Having highly qualified, certified coders on staff can:
Ensure correct medical coding based on reputable source authorities such as the Official Guidelines for Coding and Reportingand the AHA's Coding Clinic
Facilitate the physician query process to ensure appropriate DRG assignment

Gallery Show: A Narrative, Rewritten

Time: All Day Event
Location: Umbrella Gallery
Address: 2803 Taylor St. Dallas, Tx 75226
Price: Free
Category: Arts / Exhibits
A new solo exhibition show from artist Hannah Aaron.

Statement from the artist:
Blessed be the LORD, my rock, who trains my hands for war, and my fingers for battle; Psalm 144:1

My work is about reclaiming my feminine identity which had been previously shaped by societal pressures and experiences from childhood. I danced for nine years in ballet classes, which now serves as the source imagery for my oil paintings. As a young girl, I struggled with feeling good enough. The treatment of the slippers in my paintings are evocative of the obsessive perfectionism, crippling anxiety, and overwhelming pressure I felt in my youth. My affiliation between perfection, performance and intrinsic value followed me into adulthood, clouding my perspective of femininity. Describing boxing gloves serve as a counter perspective, sourced from Biblical scriptures. In a way, painting them serve as a form of therapy, prayer, and declaration of self-worth to my present reality. For me, the fight is not a physical one, but a spiritual and mental one. My fight looks rewriting the narrative of my past and agreeing with Gods thought towards me, which is this: I am valuable. And that will never change. Painting from life is important to me. When I paint from a still life arrangement or a figure model, my interaction with the object or person keeps my thoughts in the present moment, rather than dwelling on the past. The application of my paintings include areas of refinement, nuances in cast shadows and reflected light, as well as expressive line work, dry brush and thick impasto.

Allyson Packer: Sounding

Date: Friday February 7, 2020 through Sunday March 29, 2020.
Time: Times Vary
Location: The Hawn Gallery at the Hamon Arts Library, Southern Methodist University
Address: 6100 Hillcrest Ave, Dallas, TX 75275
Price: Free
Category: Arts / Exhibits
There are three ways to measure a body of water: by surface area, volume, or depth. Sounding is the term used to describe this last method. Unlike assessing a visible surface area, sounding is an act of remote sensing. It allows you to gather information on something you cant make physical contact with. The contents in a library are like a body of water. It holds a volume of material within a clearly defined space, while also possessing a kind of impalpable depth.

In Sounding, Packer uses text and sculptural interventions to explore the relationship between the librarys known and unknowable qualities. Through this artwork, the Hawn Gallery and Hamon Arts Librarys tangible architectural spaces become a framework to plumb the immeasurable depths of knowledge the building contains.

Allyson Packer makes artwork that engages viewers in examining the myths and values embedded in the built environment. Her installations and performances have been shown at Nahmad Projects (London), Hyde Park Art Center (Chicago), and Birds + Richard (Berlin), among other venues. Her upcoming solo exhibition, Inland Sea, will open at the Las
Cruces Art Museums Brannigan Cultural Center in July 2020. Packer earned her MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and her BFA from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She lives in Denton, Texas, where she is a faculty member in the College of Visual Arts and Design at the University of North Texas.

Hosted by Sweet Pass Sculpture Park and ex ovo projects, we present ECHO STOP, a multidisciplinary exhibition featuring the work of six artists working and studying in close proximity to one another: Nathalie Alfonso, Elizabeth Betzen, Ciara Elle Bryant, Leah Flook, Brandon McGahey, and Tino Ward. The work in ECHO STOP mines personal and cultural memory, historical narratives, and uncovers hidden traces embedded in objects and the environment. With divergent approaches, the artists in ECHO STOP respond directly to the landscape and structures found across two art spaces, offering alternative narratives and restorative gestures through various materials, bodies, and images.

Gallery Show: A Narrative, Rewritten

Time: All Day Event
Location: Umbrella Gallery
Address: 2803 Taylor St. Dallas, Tx 75226
Price: Free
Category: Arts / Exhibits
A new solo exhibition show from artist Hannah Aaron.

Statement from the artist:
Blessed be the LORD, my rock, who trains my hands for war, and my fingers for battle; Psalm 144:1

My work is about reclaiming my feminine identity which had been previously shaped by societal pressures and experiences from childhood. I danced for nine years in ballet classes, which now serves as the source imagery for my oil paintings. As a young girl, I struggled with feeling good enough. The treatment of the slippers in my paintings are evocative of the obsessive perfectionism, crippling anxiety, and overwhelming pressure I felt in my youth. My affiliation between perfection, performance and intrinsic value followed me into adulthood, clouding my perspective of femininity. Describing boxing gloves serve as a counter perspective, sourced from Biblical scriptures. In a way, painting them serve as a form of therapy, prayer, and declaration of self-worth to my present reality. For me, the fight is not a physical one, but a spiritual and mental one. My fight looks rewriting the narrative of my past and agreeing with Gods thought towards me, which is this: I am valuable. And that will never change. Painting from life is important to me. When I paint from a still life arrangement or a figure model, my interaction with the object or person keeps my thoughts in the present moment, rather than dwelling on the past. The application of my paintings include areas of refinement, nuances in cast shadows and reflected light, as well as expressive line work, dry brush and thick impasto.

Allyson Packer: Sounding

Category: Arts / Exhibits
There are three ways to measure a body of water: by surface area, volume, or depth. Sounding is the term used to describe this last method. Unlike assessing a visible surface area, sounding is an act of remote sensing. It allows you to gather information on something you cant make physical contact with. The contents in a library are like a body of water. It holds a volume of material within a clearly defined space, while also possessing a kind of impalpable depth.

In Sounding, Packer uses text and sculptural interventions to explore the relationship between the librarys known and unknowable qualities. Through this artwork, the Hawn Gallery and Hamon Arts Librarys tangible architectural spaces become a framework to plumb the immeasurable depths of knowledge the building contains.

Allyson Packer makes artwork that engages viewers in examining the myths and values embedded in the built environment. Her installations and performances have been shown at Nahmad Projects (London), Hyde Park Art Center (Chicago), and Birds + Richard (Berlin), among other venues. Her upcoming solo exhibition, Inland Sea, will open at the Las
Cruces Art Museums Brannigan Cultural Center in July 2020. Packer earned her MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and her BFA from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She lives in Denton, Texas, where she is a faculty member in the College of Visual Arts and Design at the University of North Texas.
