Wesley has graciously been allowed to come and video the tour as a documentary film student and today she shot some stills for me to use for my blog, thank you Wes.
I have volunteered to come over and help out at the gallery. It was very exciting to be in the gallery today and watch the monks preparing for this event. I hope if you are within traveling distance you can come over and see this wonderful event.
Here they are setting up the board the mandala will be constructed on.
The opening ceremony will be tomorrow, June 12 at 10:00 am and the construction will continue throughout the week. There will also be a workshop on June 15, and the closing deconstruction ceremony will be June 16 at 2:00pm.
If you need more info contact Suzanne at the Saxapahaw Artists Gallery
Come on by and say hello!!!!
