West London Buddhist Centre hosts exhibition of Mongolian Paintings and Calligraphy

News is just in that Triratna’s West London Buddhist Centre is hosting an exhibition on Mongolian Paintings and Calligraphy. Entitled ‘Windhorse’, it’s a solo exhibition by award-winning artist and calligrapher Sukhbaatar Davaakhuu at the Centre, 18-25 March 2011, between 2-6pm.

On Saturday 26 March there’s a talk and workshop ‘Mongolian Script and Calligraphy: the literate nomads’ given by Sukhbaatar Davaakhuu. The talk is free and at 1pm; the workshop is £15 and runs from 2-6pm - they ask people to book for the workshop.

They say - "In his talk, Sukhbaatar Davaakhuu will explain the various scripts that the Mongol nomads use, and emphasise the significance and viability of the Mongolian script. The script represents an artistic creation in its own right, which he will demonstrate in the brush-writing calligraphy workshop, so do come along and have a go. There will be an opportunity for you to have your name or message written in Mongolian script by Sukhbaatar or by yourself. Families are welcome."
