Last Saturday October 19th was Gallery walk at the Bird Road Art District. This event is a monthly art walk every third Saturday of the month for the art district on 40 St in Miami. With a wonderful night that welcomed the beginning of fall in Miami, lots of art lovers went to visit the many galleries and studios in the area.
There was a special art exhibition that called our attention at the Third Door Studio. The artists at this space put together an amazing Mandala Exhibition. The word "mandala" is from the classical Indian language of Sanskrit. Loosely translated to mean "circle," a mandalais far more than a simple shape. It represents wholeness, and can be seen as a model for the organizational structure of life itself-a cosmic diagram that reminds us of our relation to the infinite, the world that extends both beyond and within our bodies and minds.
The artists exhibiting this wonderful project were Liliana Leiro, Elcira Chomat, Abel Triana, María Rovira López, Roxana Gottschalk, Josie Rovira Ramírez , Gina Gisela Guzmán. Besides the Mandala show each artist had an exhibition area for display of their characteristics style as artists. This show was a perfect combination of art expression, good spiritual vibes and excellent Indian music.
In the above picture, you can find an example of the traditional Buddhist mandala. Describing both material and non-material realities, the mandala appears in all aspects of life: the celestial circles wecall earth, sun,
and moon, as well as conceptual circles of friends, family,and community. Creating a group mandala is a unifying experience in whichpeople can express themselves individually within a unified structure.
