Add to Calendar 13-09-2012 14-11-2012 15 TIBET HOUSE US PRESENTS: CONTEMPORARY NIRMANAKAYA Buddhist Iconography by Leah and Stan Goldberg ibet House US has unveiled news of its next highly anticipated gallery exhibit Contemporary Nirmanakaya: Buddhist Iconography by Leah and Stan Goldberg on the heels of its highly successful art exhibition Mystic Nostalgia, which drew summer crowds to the imaginative paintings of Brazilian artist Tiffani Gyatso. This unique body of work will be on display and for sale from September 13 – November 14, 2012, beginning with a special opening reception on September 13, 2012, from 6-8pm ET. A portion of all sales will benefit Tibet House US and its ongoing work to preserve and present Tibetan culture. Stunning in detail, these original contemporary versions of Buddhist tangkas (Tibetan silk paintings with embroidery) and mandalas (geometric, often circular, sacred art), created by Leah and Stan Goldberg, are steeped in tradition. The Goldbergs took the advice of a confidant of His Holiness the Dalai Lama to lead an enlightened existence quite literally and dedicated themselves to traditional Tibetan Buddhist art and how they might reinterpret it for the Western viewer. As they learned more about mandalas and their rich symbolism, they grew enthralled and were soon making their own versions of classic iconic Tibetan images. “We were changing as people and as artists with each piece that we created over the past few years, evolving despite ourselves. Sometimes the painting’s effect on us was gentle and nurturing; sometimes it was more of a drill sergeant approach. We developed a strangely intimate relationship with each iconic image. It was not unusual for them to let us know what precise asana (position) they preferred to assume. Or what they wished to wear,” says Stan Goldberg. Wherever these pieces hang, they are meant to create a feeling of tranquility and peace and help the viewer grow wiser and more compassionate. ABOUT LEAH AND STAN GOLDBERG Husband and wife Leah and Stan Goldberg have been painting together as an art team for more than 20 years. Their works may be found in prominent private collections, such as those of Mick Jagger and Billy Wilder, as well as in major corporate collections, including those of the Bank of America and the Waldorf Astoria. For the past six years Leah and Stan have resided and painted in their home studio in Galisteo, New Mexico.
