We are a group of friends and artists who met through the Wellington Buddhist Centre. Our Buddhist group encourages art as an aid to spiritual growth, as in cultivating positive emotion, mindfulness and higher states of awareness. We're interested in how our Buddhist practice of personal growth has influenced and been reflected in our art, and how our art individually and collectively may connect through that enquiry and practice.
The Wellington Buddhist Centre also emphasizes the value of friendship. This exhibition will show a group of diverse people, with different techniques and approaches to art, united by our common commitment to spiritual practice and the support of one another.
