Sandler Center Art Gallery Hosts “Experienced Synchronicity” by Daniel Kathalynas Through May 23, 2017

Monday, March 27, 2017

The Sandler Center Art Gallery is proud to announce that it will host Daniel Kathalynas's exhibit, "Experienced Synchronicity," beginning March 27.

Kathalynas1Daniel Kathalynas' method begins in a silent-mind meditation in which he allows the first higher thought that enters his mind to forge the direction of the artwork. He calls this process "First Thought Creation". Kathalynas has no expected outcome of the work. Essentially, he is just the listener. He looks to observe "Synchronicity" from the largest events to the tiniest detail which informs his art making.

Currently, Daniel Kathalynas is the resident artist of the Norfolk Botanical Garden. Kathalynas exhibited at the U.S. Embassy in Rome, National Art Center in Tokyo, as well as New York City and Washington, D.C.  He is also a former Artist-In-Residence of the Hermitage Museum in Norfolk, Virginia.Kathalynas2
