  I Want To Take You Higher
June 10 - July 31, 2004
 

The word mandala derives from the Sanskrit noun meaning circle, but has become synonymous in Western thought with the concept of sacred space. In contemporary work, artists have borrowed the visual structures of mandala to express a reverential or devotional regard for their subject, without a specific religious orientation. The overall concentric structure and complex visual patterning of mandala imagery signal the viewer that looking at a work of art can be, in the end, a source of spiritual meditation and enlightenment. The exhibition features paintings, works on paper, sculpture and photography by the following artists: Bill Armstrong, Ambreen Butt, Miriam Cabessa, Marietta Ganapin, Robert Kushner, David X. Levine, James Nelson, Aric Obrosey, Donna Sharrett, Wendy Small, David Stephenson, Barbara Takenaga, Karin Weiner, and Laura Sharp Wilson.
