Seeking Aloka's Paintings... and their ownersOn Sat, 20 August, 2011 - 06:56
Lynne Beckley, a mitra from Triratna’s Ipswich Buddhist centre, writes with an unusual request - she’s seeking to contact all the owners of paintings by Aloka, probably Triratna’s most prolific and longest-established artist. She says -
“I’m producing a photobook, on behalf of Aloka, ……….a collection of his works in one book, available for anyone to buy.
“The idea is dependent upon getting enough centres & individuals to kindly share their art commissions. So I do hope all the centres WORLDWIDE will please support this project, and it would be wonderful if YOU the individual with your private commission, would also feel able to share.
“Under each picture I will write whatever the owner/centre wishes….. e.g. Green Tara, printed by kind permission of Fred Bloggs 2011. (Any profit will go to Aloka. )
“If there is any other information that I can provide, in order to help you decide, please do not hesitate to contact me. With very best wishes & metta Lynne Beckley
