Sacred Space and Jeet Aulakh: Anahada Naada
Open May 19th 2011

Art has long been understood to convey spiritual values in many cultures. But even within secular societies artistic expression is often synonymous with spiritual or exalted experiences of our world and indeed the universe.

The exhibition Sacred Space presents works of art from the McIntosh collection that evoke reflection upon our metaphysical relationship to nature, people and the cosmos. Curated by Catherine Elliot Shaw and Jan Shepherd McKee, the exhibition includes works by David Milne, Joseph Hubbard, Ed Zelenak, Walter Redinger and Anne Meredith Barry.

To complement Sacred Space, the McIntosh has organized an exhibition of paintings by Windsor-based artist Jeet Aulakh. With Anahada Naada, a Sanskrit phrase that describes a primordial sound experienced in deep meditative states, Aulakh seeks to understand the incomprehensible connections between secular and spiritual identity through paintings of glowing, multi-coloured circles.

Sacred Space and Jeet Aulakh: Anahada Naada are presented to coincide with the 137th General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in Canada, which will be held from June 5th to June11th at Western. Over 450 attendees are expected to attend.

Join us on Thursday June 9th at 7:00 P.M. for a reception with the artists and curators featuring a guided tour of sculpture located throughout Western's park-like campus.
