BCA Art Exhibit 2022
A warm welcome is extended to everyone visiting the 2022 BCA
Virtual Art Exhibit. We hope you enjoy your stroll through the gallery.
Returning and new artists have contributed wonderful expressions in
a variety of mediums. Please enjoy the show and come back often.
Share the link with family and friends, and encourage even more to
participate in the coming years.
We would like to dedicate this year’s art exhibit to Rev. Masanori
Watanabe. Sensei passed away on November 26, 2021. Sensei
enjoyed a deep appreciation for art and shared his own expressions
in painted works. We are very honored to include two of his
paintings. One is an early portrait of himself. It may reveal a likeness
of himself before his days as a minister. The second is a portrait of
Shinran Shonin. This reflects a deep and personal impression left
upon Rev. Watanabe as he endeavored to share the Nembutsu
teachings of Master Shinran with all of us.
Sensei served the Oxnard
Buddhist Temple and the Buddhist Church of Santa Barbara during
his tenure with the Buddhist Churches of America. He was 49 years
old. Thank you, Sensei.
