October 13-29, 2016, Trace Foundation New York will host an exhibit of thangkas and silk appliques by Terris and Leslie Nguyen Temple. The show also features workshops and a screening of Tsurphu, the Giant Appliques.
Terris Temple, the first Westerner trained in Tibetan thangka painting, is now the official artist to the Seventeenth Gyalwa Karmapa and Tsurphu Monastery. His vivid artwork reflects his passion for the environment and his concern for the future of the natural world.
Leslie Nguyen Temple, trained in art therapy and Tibetan thangka painting, collaborated with Terris in re-creating a 108-feet silk appliqué thangka for Tsurphu Monastery. With a long-standing background in yoga, Leslie has taught body-based sessions since 2005.
The Nirmanakaya Yeshe Tsogyal applique thangka commissioned by Jnanasukha Foundation and created by Leslie Nguyen Temple is part of this exhibit and will be available for purchase to benefit the nuns of Tsogyal Latso, Tibet.
