Man­dalas at Beaulne

Stanstead Journal - - LENNOXVILLE NEWS - Coat­i­cook

The Beaulne Mu­seum in Coat­i­cook is proud to show the ex­hi­bi­tion Man­dalas pre­sented by artist painter Jean Har­ris, from Fe­bru­ary 03 to March 10, 2013. The pre­view will be held on Sun­day, Fe­bru­ary 03 at 2 p.m., ev­ery­one is wel­come. Jean Har­ris is a mixed me­dia artist, liv­ing in Stanstead whose work is in­spired by na­ture and her per­sonal imag­i­na­tion. Her paint­ings are full of colour and tex­ture and en­gage the viewer on many lev­els. She worked for many years as a tra­di­tional painter, but through ex­per­i­men­ta­tion has adopted a mixed me­dia ap­proach to pro­duce richly lay­ered re­sults.

Jean has at­tended many art cour­ses and work­shops and has par­tic­i­pated in group and solo ex­hi­bi­tions. In 2003, she re­ceived first prize at the an­nual com­pe­ti­tion at La Mai­son des Arts Saint-Faustin with over 100 artists par­tic­i­pat­ing. Man­dalas, which means sa­cred cir­cle in San­skrit, are uni­ver­sal, time­less im­ages which can be found all over the world. Although she has of­ten in­cluded cir­cles in her paint­ings, this project of cre­at­ing tra­di­tional, struc­tured man­dalas was quite a de­par­ture from her past work. She found that the process of cre­at­ing th­ese im­ages far sur­passed the fin­ished work in im­por­tance and, for her, was a very sat­is­fy­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.
