DHARMA IN THE HEARTLAND--BY ALLAN YATES  

On display February 1-28 At Art Bank Gallery 811 Massachusetts Ave 46204
Opening reception February 2nd 6-9pm
Admission and parking free

Dharma in the Heartland is an ongoing documentary project that I began in 2012 and is the body of work from which the images for this exhibit have been selected.  Unknown to most mid-westerners, there are at present 150 small but vibrant Buddhist spiritual communities (known as Sanghas) and meditation centers in the Midwest region of the U.S.  My photographic inquiry into these communities began with the Tibetan Mongolian Buddhist Cultural Center in Bloomington, IN which is the focal point of this exhibit. The intention behind my documentary photography of Buddhism in the Midwest is to provide others with insight into a very different culture that exists in America's heartland.  It is my hope that this project will provide others with visual art that is at once thought provoking, insightful and engaging.

Abstract Views of the World, Waiting To Be Seen

The world around us is rich with shapes, colors, flows, textures, … and emotions.  It is all Real, right in front of us, every day and night, …but is just waiting to be seen.

The January Featured Artist exhibit at Art Bank Gallery will display the photographic images of Darrell Staggs that capture abstract views of the world right in front of us.   Many of us will only look, but rarely see.
