ART AT YAM

Trey and I have been enjoying museums and art galleries together for 30 years and couldn’t be more excited about the “A” in YAM. Our Art Gallery will be inside the yoga studio allowing yoga students to enjoy beautiful local art while practicing. We will have one “Featured Artist” occupying one studio wall, and several “Highlighted Artists” on the opposite wall, all will be available for sale.

Our first Featured Artist is Tanner Lawley, who holds a dear place in our heart. We purchased one of our first pieces from Tanner’s studio on Valentines Day in 2016. And last year on Valentine’s Day, we were able to meet him in-person. During this meeting, he introduced us to the book “Power vs Force”, which has been a very meaningful book for both of us.
