The Tombaugh Gallery presents “Moons, Mandalas and Meditations,” work by Las Cruces artist Corina Gabaldŏn.
The exhibit opens on Sunday, December 4th with an artist reception from 11:30 to 1:30 pm. There will be a second opening on Friday, January 6th, 5 – 7pm. The show continues through January 27, 2017.
Inspired by the beauty and magic of the moon, Corina traveled a “wondrous journey into the mystical, universal, and divine circle – the Mandala,” discovering the sacred circle residing in herself. Her exhibit includes acrylic, gold leaf and India ink mandala paintings, full moon photographs, and inspirational meditations. She states “The sacred circle, or mandala, can assist us in opening our hearts to create that space within us, which we can fill with peace, wholeness and harmony, and then reflect it back into the world.”
Corina has studied with the renowned Mandala teacher, Paul Heussenstamm, and with local artist Kate Mott. She has exhibited her art throughout New Mexico, El Paso, Texas, and in Paquima, Mexico. She has had extensive training in the art, music, and culture of Mexico and of Japan. A retired educator, she received the Arts in Education award from the Dona Ana Arts Council.
The Tombaugh Gallery is located inside the Unitarian Universalist Church, 2000 South Solano Drive, Las Cruces, NM and is open Wednesday – Saturday 10 am – 2 pm.
