going to art museums and events absorbing all the creativity. It’s been GLORIOUS!
For Mother’s Day, dear hubby, dear daughter, her sweetie and I headed to Fort Worth. We toured the Kimbell and Aron Carter Museums, went to the Stockyards to see a parade full of longhorn cattle, ate pizza, drank (responsibly), and were merry!
My favorite photo from the day is this one I took of Lily. She is conjuring the spirit of art!
Less than a week later, my friend Midge and I headed to the Nasher Sculpture Center for the Roni Horn Members Preview. O.M.G.! They do it right at Nasher. Roni Horn’s giant glass objects in pastel colors are magical to see in the unique lighting of the Nasher gallery. Members and their guests arrive to champagne, wine, fruity water, delicious hors d’oeuvres, and a cold slab ice cream station. So Fabulous! Look how happy Midge is while she waits as her ice cream is made fresh on the spot.
We also made time to see the Dallas Museum of Art’s Mexico: 1900 – 1950 and Iris Van Herpen: Transforming Fashion exhibits.
Yesterday, on Sunday, I went back to Dallas all by myself. I saw the spiritually moving Wisdom of Compassion exhibit. I don’t even know how to describe it…it is deeply Buddhist, deeply illuminating, deeply loving. As he painted, artist Iwasaki Tsuneo prayed, offered incense, and chanted to infuse his paintings with healing energy. The art works have also been blessed by the Dalai Lama. Meditation pillows are placed in front of the works so viewers can meditate in front of them. The gallery is a super peaceful and healing place to spend time in.
My photos do not do his work justice. Mandala of Evolution “Who is my family”
Big Bang: E=mc2 “Where is Home” The tiny details are breathtaking and impossible to capture with my iPhone.
On my way to my car, I saw a sign for a FREE concert by the Dallas Symphony for the Soluna International Music and Art Festival. So I was treated to an amazing 50 minute concert. The “cherry on the top” to my afternoon.
I am feeling so incredibly blessed by the opportunities in my life to experience the art of the masters. I am deeply blessed and feeling the ARTitude.
