Heather Fidler, contemporary mandala artist, will present her work.
Artist statement: “I continue to love the energy and joy that comes from creating! My passion is Mandala which in Sanskrit means circle. Mandala’s circular patterns are all around us in art, architecture, nature and religion. I became a lover of the Mandala after learning about them simultaneously in both art and geometry classes during high school. I was fascinated with the idea that art could also embody math and science!? It was instant LOVE and I have been creating them ever since. My Mandalas are influenced by the Buddhist sand Mandalas which are meticulously created from colored sand by Buddhist monks over several weeks only to be ritualistically destroyed and the sand released again into a body of moving water.”
Admission is free.
