Sacred Arts Tour

 

The monks of Drepung Gomang are sharing the compassion and wisdom of Tibetan Buddhism, to demonstrate the artistic accomplishments of the people of Tibet, and to generate funds to insure the survival of the Tibetan culture. Drepung Gomang Monastery uses all donations and proceeds from the sale of Tibetan crafts and jewelry to house, feed, and educate everyone wishing to study at this monastic center of higher learning, including orphans and refugees fleeing Chinese-occupied Tibet. The monastery is working to establish a Food Foundation Fund, which will help the monastery provide a continuous food supply to the student monks in years to come. Please remember and embrace that they are refugees from Tibet. After this year-long tour, they cannot return to their own country…they have a monastery in India that they will return to.

At the Opening Ceremony, the monks will chant powerful prayers for peace, prosperity, and healing in traditional overtones—the chant master intoning a full chord of three notes. Their chants will be accompanied by delicate hand gestures, cymbals, drums, horns, and flutes.

What is a Mandala? 

The Mandala, Tibetan sand painting, is an ancient art form of Tibetan Buddhism. The mandala is a Sanskrit word meaning cosmogram or “world in harmony.” Mandalas are drawings in three-dimensional forms of sand. In Tibetan, this art is called dul-tson-kyilkhor which means “mandala of colored powders.”

 

Sand painting is an ancient Tibetan art form. The sand mandala is carefully constructed from dyed sand particles to represent the particular esoteric, textual traditions of Buddhism. It is a transient art form, thought to have originated in India and been transferred in the middle ages to Tibet. The sand mandala is constructed as vehicle to generate compassion, realize the impermanence of reality, and a social/cosmic healing of the environment.

 

Chanting and Preparation

Chanting and Preparation

 

In Tibetan Buddhism, a mandala is an imaginary palace that is contemplated during meditation. Each object in the palace has significance, representing some aspect of wisdom or reminding the meditator of some guiding principle. Various scriptural texts dictate the shapes, forms, and colors of the mandala. There are many different mandalas, each with different lessons to teach and blessings to confer. Most mandalas contain a host of deities, symbolic archetypes of the landscape of the mind.

 

Among the Tibetan arts, painting with colored sand ranks as one of the most unique and exquisite. Millions of grains of colored sand are painstakingly laid into place on a flat platform over a period of several days, forming an intricate diagram of the enlightened mind and the ideal world.  In ancient times, powdered precious and semi-precious gems were also used. When finished, to symbolize the impermanence of all that exists, the colored sands are swept up and poured into a nearby river or stream where the waters carry the healing energies throughout the world.

More About Mandalas

 

In general, all mandalas have outer, inner, and secret meaning. On the outer level they represent the world in its divine form; on the inner level, they represent a map by which the ordinary human mind is transformed into the enlightened mind; and on the secret level, they predict the primordially perfect balance of the subtle energies of the body and the clear light dimension of the mind. The creation of a sand painting is said to affect purification and healing on these three levels.

 

 

Creating the mandala

Creating the mandala

 

Every tantric system has its own mandala, and thus each one symbolizes an existential and spiritual approach. For example, that of Lord Avalokiteshvara symbolizes compassion as a central focus of the spiritual experience; that of Lord Manjushri takes wisdom as the central focus; and that of Vajrapani emphasizes the need for courage and strength in the quest for sacred knowledge. Medicine Buddha mandalas are created to generate powers of healing.

 

The creation of a sand mandala begins with an opening ceremony. Monks consecrate the site and call forth the forces of goodness through chanting mantras accompanied by flutes, drums and cymbals. The construction of the mandala begins with the drawing of the design on the base, or tek-pu. The artists measure out and draw the architectural lines using a straight-edged ruler, compass and ink pen.

 

Finishing the mandala

Finishing the mandala

 

The mandala is a formal geometric pattern showing the floor plan of a sacred mansion. Once the diagram is drawn, in the following days you see millions of grains of colored sand painstakingly laid into place. The sand, colored with vegetable dyes or opaque tempera, is poured onto the mandala platform with a narrow metal funnel called a “chakpur” which is scraped by another metal rod to cause sufficient vibration for the grains of sand to trickle out of its end. The two “chakpurs” are said to symbolize the union of wisdom and compassion. The mandalas are created whenever a need for healing of the environment and living beings is felt.

 

The monks consider our present age to be one of great need in this respect, and therefore are creating these mandalas where requested throughout their world tours. When finished, to symbolize the impermanence of all that exists, the colored sands are swept up and poured into a nearby river or stream where the waters carry healing energies throughout the world.

Arturo Avila-Garcia

 

 

 

 

Arturo Avila-Garcia spent his first years of college studying psychology which inspired him to express himself by painting. After two years of embracing the notion that “reality has no limits to examine our certainties about ourselves and our community”, he changed careers to focus on a BFA with concentration on painting. In 1992 he was chosen by The Museum of Modern Art in Bogota for their biannual exhibition as one of the most influential young artists. Previously, he participated at an Art convocation from the Institute that promotes higher education (ICFES) and was awarded Honorable Mention for an installation that feature painting, sculpture and neon lights. The following year he had his first SOLO exhibition at the Santa Gallery, title “Idols”.

 

 

With a BFA and a lot of expectations, he came to the US and has resided in Florida for 25 years. Over time, it became very clear that he was getting into his second journey of “self discovery”. He’s been earning a living through the construction, retail, hospitality and education industries, always keeping the concentration in developing a language and identity as a painter.  He uses various mediums such as pencil, chalk, acrylic and oil on canvas. Arturo, being true to his passion, has also taken on visual decorative and freelance custom paintings projects for companies like Bloomingdales and private collectors. In 2005 he graduated with a Masters in Education with concentration in Curriculum and Instruction and accepted an art teaching position at Olympic Heights Community High School in Boca Raton, Florida.

Custom Installation at Bloomingdales by Arturo Avila-Garcia

 

Arturo has been in collective exhibitions with Broward Art Guild, Boca Raton Art Guild and the Artists of Palm Beach County where he was won awards for his paintings.  He tells The Rickie Report, “The passion of how I approach the painting process gives me an outlet to communicate with people in a non-verbal level”.  He expresses himself through images and ideas relative to paint and color, to deliver a visual message of his life journey, resulting in his latest project titled “Blues”. The series is inspired by “One Hundred Years of Solitude”, a novel by Gábriel Garcia Marquez and his own personal journey.

 

” Salsa Blues ” by Arturo Avila-Garcia

Arturo shares with The Rickie Report, “The narrative in my paintings combined abstract realism or figurative and magic realism or realistic fiction. I am inspired by artist like Matisse and Vermeer. Influenced by music that I found a correlation with painting. Also by images of people and their inner sensations and sentiments. During my exploration of elements of dreams, fantasy and reality, the literature world of  magic realism from Garcia Marquez’s Hundred Years of Solitude, inspired some of the paintings. Blues I and Blues II depicted a moment where the introduction to ice is a magic situation, comes naturally, as a simple, everyday occurrence in which fantastical things are treated not just as possible, but also as realistic.  My paintings often have vibrant colors, a realistic view reminiscent of the tropical colors from the equatorial location of Colombia, for this exhibit I used one primary color and one secondary color to visual balance the color composition as it is a musical composition, a blues with flowing lines like the mountain landscape creating figures attaching the lines and forms to the composition with harmony and rhythm”. 

 

 

” Matisse Blues ” by Arturo Avila-Garcia

 

 

Arturo explains, “My paintings often have vibrant colors, reminiscent of the tropical colors from the equatorial location of Colombia with flowing lines like the mountain landscape, creating figures attaching the lines and forms to the composition.   This creative exploration you may think, is a contradiction between magic realism and realistic fiction.  After all, how can something be both magical and real? Magic isn’t real – or is it? In Latin America, the continent from which the genre of magical realism was cultivated, there is an attitude that anything can happen –  even miracles. My interpretation of magical realism is closely connected to my Catholic religious background, which believes in miracles and other spontaneous and indescribable abstract phenomena.  In my work this abstract element is determined by the expression and by the form”.

” Dualism has been an influence on every aspect of my artistic development, interpreting and balancing two realities. The same narrative could be applicable to the immigrant artist like myself in another country with a different culture and language… two different worlds, two realities are a continuous challenge that enriched individuality. My interest is a visual balance of realism or figurative art and abstract art”.

 

” Blues” by Arturo Avila-Garcia

 

 

 

Arturo’s artwork has been exhibited  end awarded at: The Museum of Modern Art in Bogota, ICFES (Colombian Institution for Higher Education) , Artists of Palm Beach County, Santa Gallery, (“Idols”), University Gallery Bogotá, Broward Art Guild, Boca Raton Art Guild, Artisans on the Ave., and APBC Art on Park Gallery

“Behind The Screen” Exhibit At Center For Creative Education Will Interest All Ages, Opening May 12

The Center For Creative Education understands that movies and music are an escape for many of us. Buying a movie ticket, popcorn, soda, and picking the right theater seat to embark on an extraordinary journey… Or scoring tickets to a concert to see your favorite band perform live… But what happens leading up to that point? What encouraged us to even want to see that movie or go to that concert? A new exhibit,“Behind the Screen”, looks at the details that lead up to such an experience. The public is invited to the Opening Reception on Saturday, May, 12th.  Marketing posters, props and art involved to pitch a story that will present itself on the big screen or on stage are all major keys to success. Posters for both movies and music performances will be highlighted as well as screen printing, which makes up a large number of artworks associated with both movies and music.  The Rickie Report shares the details and some sneak peeks.

MOVIES
“Marketers needed “still”  images to convey the plot and to get people’s attention to successfully sell the product. These posters had to be artistically pleasing to make audiences curious about how what is portrayed actually plays out in the film. Posters were created, usually painted by artists like Drew Struzan, that would show many images mixed together to portray the story on a grand scale. Sometimes, posters had a simple image from the movie that was so stunning, the viewer must know what it connects to. For the longest time, posters have succeeded in mixing advertising with artistry.” – The Reel Deal, Andre Haas

 

 

“Panic” Seattle Tour

 

MUSIC
“The beautiful psychedelic gig posters that helped define the 1960s San Francisco rock scene are no longer a lost, joss-stick-scented tradition. Musicians from Arcade Fire and PJ Harvey to Bob Dylan and Liza Minnelli are using limited-edition posters to accompany shows, as an often strikingly original counterpoint to their music. Just as in the old days, the artists silk-screen print by hand in batches of a few hundred… The posters also offer a return to the tangible fantasy world fans have always built around bands, resisting the retreat to music as a digital, invisible experience. “Bands don’t have a 12-inch gatefold sleeve now,” says the Flood Gallery’s manager Tom Warner, “they have a 600 x 600 pixel picture on iTunes. Posters give them an outlet.” – Ultimate pop art – Why gig posters are a sound investment, Nick Hasted

“Quartet 1” by Judith Rosenberg

 

Judith Rosenberg tells The Rickie Report, “Painting and the creation of art are a great source of physical and intellectual pleasure for me.  Since retiring from Judith Jack, Inc., the jewelry design firm my husband, Jack and I founded, I’ve had the luxury of time to devote to a life-long love, the creation of art. Portraying women in all their diversity and drama is a subject that continues to inspire me. I have merged my original acrylic paintings and my latest interest, photography. My published writings on the subjects of historical fashion and jewelry, and the research necessary to be factual, have inspired me to portray women – bold, daring, playful or conservative – who so creatively present themselves to the world. Literature, fashion, museums, architecture and nature have been influences on me as well”.

“Metropolis”  by Judith Rosenberg

 

 

Judith’s recent incorporation of her photography and her paintings have led to exciting results! “I’ve recently designed a series of “Women of the Flowers.” A sequence of steps is performed to achieve what I hope are distinctive results: I paint in acrylics, photograph the image then using the computer, alter colors, change backgrounds and continue to design.  I work on these artworks until my head and my heart say, “Enough!” Having them printed on an aluminum sheet offers drama, elegance and quality that sets them apart from any other process – complete, unique and without the need for framing, ready to adorn your home!  There are endless uses for the various mediums and tools that are available for artistic expression. I hope that the observer truly enjoys the marrying of media and the many aspects of beauty I have chosen in creating my art”.

JACK   ROSENBERG’S  MOST  RECENT  EXHIBITION

JADITE  GALLERY

NEW YORK, NEW YORK

 

 

NYC4PA, the New York City of Photograph Art held an art exhibit at the Jadite Gallery in Hell’s Kitchen, NYC.  The theme of the call for this juried show was “Wandering Curves – the Curve Changes Everything.”  Jack’s “Three Martinis” certainly respond to that!

“Three martinis” by Jack Rosenberg

 

 

 

 

After graduating from Brooklyn College, Jack worked as a microbiologist and then as a medical supply salesman to doctors and hospitals. His growing interest in antique jewelry led him to become, along with his wife, Judith, co-founder and CEO of Judith Jack, Inc., a jewelry design firm with international sales. Together with the design staff, Jack took pleasure in putting his own ideas into play. He says, “After selling the business and retiring, my artistic side flowered. Charcoals, drawing, painting and sculpting became part of my ever-expressing means of creativity. My awareness of shapes, colors, textures and forms in their splendor impelled me to continue to investigate a variety of methods and materials”.

 

“Woven” by Jack Rosenberg

 

Jack excitedly says, “Then, I discovered photography!  I found my true love! As I look through the lens of a camera, I see and appreciate the world around me in a new and exhilarating way.  Everything else is shut out of the world at that moment.  I am only focused on what I see through the lens”.  Jack goes one to share, “Photographypermits me to fully and continuously express my artistic vision and share my passion with others.  As I fundamentally believe, everything in our physical surroundings can become the subject of a meaningful photograph. I relish humanizing inanimate objects and creating scenes from unexpected sources.  Every photograph tells a unique story – real or imagined – and, hopefully evokes thought and pleasure in the viewer’s mind”.
