Description: Tibet House US has announced an exciting new multimedia art exhibit, Sacred Vision, Separate Views: Contemporary Perspectives in Buddhist Art, which will run December 6, 2012, through February 1, 2013. For the first time, the Tibet House US will present paintings, drawings, videos, sculptures, installations and live performance art, as six New York City-based artists present modern takes on Buddhist traditions and teachings. Artists James Walton Fox, Valley Burke Fox, Shigeru Oyatani, E. Elizabeth Peters, Wesley Simon, and Jayoung Yoon approach their spiritual journeys through multiple mediums that come together to represent confluence, compromise or conflict in the journey toward enlightenment. A portion of all sales will benefit Tibet House US and its ongoing work to preserve and present Tibetan culture.
