Mindfulness, peace and compassion lie behind the works at the next Burnaby Neighbourhood House art show.
The organization’s North House, at 4908 Hastings St., is hosting a new art exhibition for the month of April featuring paintings by artist Carolyn Trotter.
An open house and meet-the-artist event is set for Friday, April 5 from 6 to 8 p.m.
A press release about the event notes that Trotter is an artist, breast cancer survivor and meditation advocate. The collection of paintings on display has been inspired by her travels to India, Bali and Mexico and her desire to create art to support healing.
“Painting is both a healing process for her and an offering of healing to others,” the release says.
“Her work captures the energy and intrinsic flow of nature by combining sacred geometry (mandala) with free-flowing floral and leaf elements as symbols of growth and spiritual development.
“When you view this collection of work, she hopes it inspires you to live mindfully with peace and compassion in your heart.”
Visitors can drop in anytime from Monday to Friday, 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
