Join us for artist talk with Gord Smith
Sunday May 4, 2-4 pm.

"Art is the magic in the mystery, and discovery the reward of intuition "
In the early 80's I began to discover phenonenum that produced a mandala based
on form, light and consciousness, the context of which fuses science philosophy and

Science searches the PAST to find a beginning 
Religion searches the FUTURE to find the forever
Philosophy searches the PRESENT to find reality for now

Science is looking for a singularity. It eludes them because it is FELT.
Most cultures call it GOD.

The mandala is built on FACT and LOGIC and yet it mystifies!
As Arthur Conon Doyle said, "There is nothing more deceptive than an obvious fact."

Much of what is being discovered in quantum physics is in the order of the mandala.
