with Kendra Denny
Wednesday, October 24, 6-8 p.m.
Earlier this year, local artist and educator Kendra Denny spent fourteen weeks studying Tibetan thangka painting at the Center for Living Buddhist Art in Dharamshala, India. Her mentors and guides included Master Locho, his wife Sarika Singh, and their long-term student Lobsang Tsaten. This traditional style of Buddhist painting is considered an endangered art form, with only a handful of master thangka painters still practicing today. Dharamshala and the surrounding area are home to many thousands of displaced Tibetans including H.H. the Dalai Lama and the Tibetan government in exile.
Join Kendra for an evening slide show presentation of her experience in Dharamshala and the unveiling of her completed thangka painting of the Bodhisattva Manjushri.
Everyone is welcome.
