Juliet Seaver's exhibition includes 24 prints of paintings, which all begin with the same Buddha silkscreen of a 5,000-year-old Tibetan woodblock. She prints, then paints over each one to represent varied moods, situations, dramas, and stories. She illustrates how beneath the surface resides our Buddha Nature: compassionate, peaceful, loving, quiet, kind.
This exhibit is dedicated primarily to nature photography. My interest in nature photography lies in understanding myself in relation to a place and how it translates into an image. This is when images come alive and become compelling. The images in my exihibit, “Light, Air, Water & Space” are local to Western Massachusetts, and were made in Amherst, Whately, Leverett, Buckland, Montague and Farley. The beauty of this area is captivating, and I experience and express it through my images. As the photographer Minor White famously said: “One should not only photograph things for what they are but for what else they are.” John Shannon
