Stop in the name of Tranquility

In a time of terror and global threats, one has to retreat inwardly for our own sanity and security. Gandhi and Buddha taught that war was never a solution. Fortunately, I have found some amazing artists that give us a sense of tranquility and hope for a brighter tomorrow.

     Through prayer, mediation, communication and living by the Golden Rule, we can bring about lasting peace. To find that inner peace, it is helpful to gaze upon or into mandalas. This exhibition is a physical manifestation of the spiritual that transcends the temporal.

    Although they all speak in a universal language to me, I am completely intrigued by P T Lama’s subjective work, however Rosenberg’s ‘collage of medias’ lends much thought, but then William Emboden weaves many hidden images – one with, so to speak, allows me to “walk into the valley….I fear no evil…”

  2. I am excited to exhibit my pieces from Cambodia. Come see the show!
