Chris Flisher Brings His World of Spiritual Art to Boston

Noted artist, astrologer, radio host and spiritual adventurer featured in Canvas Fine Arts exhibition in Boston throughout November

 
PRLog - Oct. 11, 2012 - BOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- BOXBORO, Mass.; Oct. 11, 2012 – Chris Flisher, whose distinctive and evocative mandala pen and ink drawings were selected recently as part of the U.S. Department of States' prestigious Art in Embassies program, will be featured in a solo show focusing on the spiritual connection between astrology and art.  The “Art of The Cosmos," will run from Nov. 1-30 at Boston’s Canvas Fine Arts Gallery601, Sixth Floor, 162 Boylston Street.  There will be an opening reception on Nov. 9, 6-8 pm.

The mandala art form has a basis in Hinduism and Buddhism and is characterized by the use of circles and other recurring geometric patterns that serve as a metaphor for the cycles found in daily life.  “I was drawn to mandalas years ago through my love of astrology, which uses circles and cycles to represent the changing universe,” Flisher says.  

“The mandala art form is largely unknown in the Western world, but has conveyed a spiritual connection with people for thousands of years,” said Suzanne Shultz, owner of Canvas Fine Arts Gallery 601.  “Chris has exhibited here in the past and we’re very pleased to share his unique, powerful vision and message again with those in the Boston area.”

Three of Flisher’s mandalas are on display through 2015 at the U.S. Embassy in Praia, Cape Verde, an island nation off the coast of western Africa.  The Art in Embassies (AIE) program was established by the Museum of Modern Art in 1953, and formalized as part of the Department of State by the Kennedy administration in 1963. AIE is one of the United States’ premier public-private partnership arts organizations, with over 20,000 individual and institutional participants, and a presence in some 200 venues within 189 countries worldwide.
