Impermanence: Mystery, Transformation, Light

May 19, 2018 - August 5, 2018

This exhibition centers on impermanence, an essential tenet of Buddhism. Using drawings as symbols or metaphors for transitory life experiences, the eleven artists tell stories about lost innocence, fading memory, mortality, and the drawing process itself. Using traditional media, each artist offers insights into life’s fleeting nature.
