ZEN IN GRANGE HALL
ON VIEW UNTIL JANUARY
Zen painting is free, effortless, natural painting. There is no planning, thought, or struggle. When engaged with Zen painting, the painter and the painted are one. Zen painting runs counter to the usual academic and conceptual methods for creation of artwork. In Zen-fashion, the consciousness goes deep beneath the surface, uncovering patterns that change and flow moment by moment. bloomed.

PAULA SUSARTE: OCT. 22 - NOV 30
The inspiration for this collection was nature. Each image reflects innocence and a pure, perfect moment of beauty. To be in contact with nature gives me the opportunity to be present, to stop my mind, to connect with myself. For me, these aspects bring Peace for the Soul.
The allure in taking the photographs not only came from capturing the form of each flower but also from capturing the light and background of the setting. In addition, editing the composition and the contrast within each image allowed me to provide balance and harmony to the final photograph. All the images in this collection were made many years ago. I have collected them from my archive to form the Peace for the Soul Collection.
