Mandala Musing

Textures and color create the whole

Long ago (about twenty-something years ago) I discovered quite by accident the art of Mandala. I was creating them before I had any clue what I was doing. The wonder of it all was incredible. I remember just drawing in a circle because it FELT good. It healed me, It inspired me, it was peaceful.

Then, at an art show, a fellow artist asked me how long I had been creating mandalas. I had literally no clue what she was speaking about. She laughed at me (rightfully so) and expressed in awe that I was creating in an intuitive rather informal way.  She then explained to me what I was doing. It was incredible and the passion I feel for Mandalas was then identified and nurtured. I haven’t walked away since. 

A few months ago, I put out a call for artists. You never know who might be willing to share their work. I decided I needed to be completely open to what came my way. I have not been disappointed!  I find everyone’s interpretation of the art of mandala to be inspiring personally. I am happy to say that several artists answered the call and as a result, I have hung a beautiful exhibit. There are experienced artists and novices. There is color and texture and wonder. There is joy, and work, and process. These brave artists have shared their souls with you.

The exhibit opens on Friday, November 2 and will be up until November 16. I hope you find some time to come and see this exhibit! It is spiritual, personal and delightful. It is an exhibit that helps you pause to think, take a breath and enjoy the moment. 

Join us… to share this beautiful exhibit. You won’t be disappointed!

 

Blessings and love, 

Susan
