Photo Mandalas: Bill Armstrong and Milan Fano Blatný
September 6, 2008 - February 1, 2009

This visually bold exhibition of more than thirty photographs brings together two contemporary artists whose work has been inspired by the ancient form of the mandala.

These images, made in color by Bill Armstrong (American, born 1952) and in black-and-white by Milan Fano Blatný (Czech, born 1972), are not meant specifically for sacred use. Still, they evoke the traditional structure of the mandala, in which symbolic colors, shapes, and subject matter emanating from a central core inspire contemplation and wonder.
