BCMCC - Good Eye: Responding to the Landscape

Sat. 20 Jul, 2019 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Good Eye: Responding to the Landscape
June 15 – September 2
Opening Reception June 15, 2:00 p.m.
Sharon Barfoot has enjoyed a long and varied career in the arts that has included costume and jewelry design, teaching, graphics, curating and, most recently, painting full-time. Sharon’s approach to the work in this exhibition is minimalist in which she applies the Buddhist concept of Miksang. Miksang is a Tibetan word meaning ‘good eye’ where it is asked that we view the world in a new way; a way that is always fresh as if seeing it for the first time. Sharon responds to the landscape with a ‘good eye’ and works to bare the bones and remove the details in order to find the essence of place.
