Sierra Nevada College hosts feminist artist Joanna Frueh workshop


“The Glamour of Being Real” book and workshops focus on practices of self-transformation and conscious self-creation.

Following her performance at UNR  on March 1, scholar, teacher, and artist Joanna Frueh will conduct a workshop at Sierra Nevada College,  999 Tahoe Blvd., on Friday, March 2 from 1 -3:30pm in David Hall, 3rd floor. The workshop is limited to 25 people.  There is a $10 workshop fee that includes a copy of the book The Glamour of Being Real. The book and workshops focus participants on being true to themselves through practices of self-transformation and conscious self-creation.

The Glamour of Being Real evolved from Frueh’s work and performances to celebrate beauty and the body and is one of several books authored by the artist. Frueh’s multifaceted focus on those subjects includes research and experience, such as her study of emotions and sensations and of the female body in art and culture and my engagement with yoga as a continuing education of soul-and-mind-inseparable-from-body. The book is a sutra, a series of concise, related statements, each one also being a sutra, whose aphoristic nature is intended to make possible memorization by a student. The209 short aphorisms spell out the glamour of being real, which is the art of self-creation, of trusting oneself. Passionate and insightful, and sometimes paradoxical, this helpful guide expresses simple means for overcoming bodily and everyday dilemmas. From the necessity of change to intimate relationships to eating, aging, and everyday life, and is filled with eloquent activism about the pleasures of soul-and-mind-inseparable-from-body.
