"Nudes and Nudibranchs'

  Award-winning painter Frank Bruckmann and sculptor Gar Waterman will exhibit their most recent  work at the Kehler Liddell Gallery: "Nudes and Nudibranchs," from February 7- March 10, 2013. Frank Bruckmann and Gar Waterman are both traditionalists who use direct observation of nature and carefully applied technique to craft their work. Bruckmann's brushstrokes caress oil paint with an expert and familiar hand into the eternally complex landscape of the female figure, while Waterman's sculpture bends the liquid sheen of polished stone into impressions of rhythm and grace from the marine environment.

How to Solve Our Human Problems

How to Solve Our Human Problems

In recent years our knowledge of modern technology has increased considerably, and as a result we have witnessed remarkable material progress, but there has not been a corresponding increase in human happiness. We all want to be happy all the time, and when we are not, we consider this to be a problem. How then can we solve our human problems? Buddha taught that if we want to be truly happy and free from suffering, then we need to learn to control our mind. Class includes guided meditation and practical advice from Buddha's teachings. No experience necessary... Everyone welcome!
