COOKEVILLE – Synergy Mind & Body Studio will hold community classes on Sunday, Oct. 4, and all proceeds will benefit Art Round Tennessee (ART).
ART is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting and expanding the arts in the Upper Cumberland. Its flagship event is the two-day ART Prowl tour of art studios and pop-up galleries, which will take place Nov.13-14 this year. In addition, ART facilitates art workshops for the public and professional development for local artists.
“Art enriches the community – we deeply believe that,” said Marilee Hall, ART executive director. “We encourage and support creative self-expression, starting with our artists and reaching out into the community to creative minds of all ages.”
During Synergy’s community day, which is held on a monthly basis, class attendees pay what they can, and 100 percent of the proceeds go to a specified charity. On Oct. 4, registered yoga teacher Dawn Thierry will teach community yoga at 2 p.m. Petti Groth, a certified meditation teacher, will teach a meditation class at 3:15 p.m. Synergy community classes are open to the public and are completely donation-based.
Synergy will also open its doors for the second year as an ART Prowl pop-up gallery, exhibiting work by the Cookeville High School emerging artists.
