TENDREL – Interconnections is an exhibition by artists who are linked to and inspired by the life work of Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo. Diverse, yet interconnected, some of the themes investigated by the artists include Tibet and its culture, Buddhism, women, spiritual life, meditation and activism. Works include photographs of nomads and nunneries in Tibet that provide profound in sight and stark contrast to the social and cultural changes of the Tibetan community; art based on Buddhist and meditative iconography that explores the practice of visualization in painting, sculpture, drawing and detailed stained glass artistry. Among those presenting works are artists Peter Aronson, Diane Barker, Caterina De Re, Mary DeVincentis, Tsunma Jamyang Donma/Yulokod Studios, Maxine Henryson, Heather Kessinger, Chrysanne Stathacos and Kate Temple.
