Tibet's Living Art: Paintings by Jampa Tsoudue

Tibet's Living Art: Paintings by Jampa Tsoudue

January 30 - March 9
Tuesday-Sunday, 12-4

Jampa Tsondue's moving thangka with their subtle colors and detailed gold painting, reflect his own spirituality amplified by his training with a monk of the Gyudmed Tantric Monastery in India. He has painted for over thirty years, first in India at monasteries, private chapels and sacred sites and, after coming to the US in 1992, at the U. S. Capitol in restoration work. He lives now in Old Saybrook. The thangka in this exhibition represent his most recent work.

Tibetan sacred paintings -- thangka -- are the creations of respected painters who, like Jampa Tsondue, were specially trained in the holy tradition, and who work to imbue their paintings with the spiritual qualities of Tibetan Traditional Buddhism.
