Upcoming Exhibit

Barton County Arts Council Friends and Acquaintances Community Art Exhibit
Underwritten by the Bill J. McKown Endowment / Golden Belt Foundation

November 1 to December 13
Featured Artists: Philip Jacobson and Mantra Cora

  Philip Jacobson has been holding international painting seminars since 1997. In 2012, Mantra Cora, joined him in organizing and teaching in the seminars. The artist has participated in more than 100 exhibitions and his writings have been read worldwide.

  Philip, Mantra Cora, and daughter Liya moved to Hoisington this year. Philip is the new painting instructor at Barton Community College.

  The art work of Mantra and Philip can be described as visionary. They use the techniques of the Renaissance masters to provide visual metaphors for states of mind and flights of the imagination that draw us from the mundane world to one that is spiritually charged with energies, archetypes and the stuff of dreams. It invites us to become vicarious pilgrims on a marvelous journey towards the sources of creativity.
