From February 17-23 several monks from the Drepung Gomang Monastery in India will visit Martin County and bring their teachings of ancient ways and beliefs that create the possibility of global peace, nonviolent conflict resolution, compassion and wisdom. Highlighting their trip is the creation of a Sacred Sand Mandala in the Martin Artisans Guild Palm Room exhibition space. The monks will share Tibetan culture and traditions, as well as offer us universal lessons on compassion and impermanence.

 

 

 

 

The Sacred Art Tour supports the 2,000 monks in Mundgod, India, with funds for their education, healthcare and nutrition. Handcrafts by Tibetan artisans will be offered for sale. The Martian Artisans Guild is comprised of professional artists from the county who have banded together to promote the arts in Martin County. Their yearly activities include the Martin County Open Studio Tour which is held the third weekend of January, numerous exhibitions, artist seminars, a county gallery guide, and other art related opportunities for artists and the general public. Their goal is to make Martin County an arts destination.
