Recurring Event Event Series: Buddhist Art

GRAND OPENING: Buddhist Art Exhibition & Crafts Display

Saturday 8 October @ 6:00 pm 8:30 pm

Presenting a range of works by talented Queensland artists, crafts people, and creatives. From traditional Tibetan Buddhist Art techniques to modern emanations and inspired creations.

Special guest Geshe Tsultrim will open the exhibition, and you will have a chance to meet many of the artists in person on the night. Join us for snacks, delicious chai, fascinating chat, and a feast for the eyes!

On Display:
Ancient Techniques with a modern edge! Traditional thangkas, deity images, mandalas and mantras of varied sizes from large and detailed to small and delicate.
Sculptures and tsa-tsas, drawings and sketches, modern Buddhist inspirations, paintings and poetry and more… Both original pieces and quality prints will be available for sale or order. Entry by donation.

The power of Creative Arts and especially the visual medium, have long been used to spread Buddhist teachings and the Dharma, and to provide spiritual support, learning and inspiration.

By displaying the Dharma inspired works of skilled artists, crafts people, creatives, and Buddhist practitioners, from across Brisbane, Sunshine Coast, and the Gold Coast, the aims of this Exhibition are to promote and showcase the great variety of ways the creative process can move and transform us.

Buddhist inspired art – art from the inside – can become a catalyst for connecting to and strengthening Buddhist practices, meditation, visualisation, and spiritual progress.

Curated by LTC artist in residence:

“The material objects you see on the altar and hanging on the walls of this meditation hall, these statues and thangkas, are symbolic. What do they symbolize? Wisdom, or understanding. Tibetan Buddhist psychology would say that these physical objects are talking to you beyond words.”
