The Manitou Springs Art Center Exhibition "Path to Presence" features traditional paubha paintings and contemporary interpretations by Chelsea Beach. Paubha is the visual presentation of Buddhist and Hindu philosophy and transcendental meditation practices. It is often attached to the Vajrayana form of Buddhism which utilizes visualization to quiet the mind and enter a state of presence. The exhibit runs daily through Feb. 2. Beach studied under master artist Lok Chitrakar for three and a half years and taught for two and half years at Chitrakar’s school in Patan, Nepal, known as Simrik Atelier. She also taught traditional painting at Kathmandu University for two years.
