ART | Buddhist and Asian Art 

Through widely regarded as a religion, Buddhism is actually a practice meant to properly value the self and others through maintaining balance in all aspects of inner and outer existence. Given the strife that results from how out of balance our lifestyles are, it's worth taking a closer look at some of the wisdom offered by its teachers throughout the ages. On Saturday, June 29, Ock Hee's Gallery (2 Lehigh St., Honeoye Falls) will present a new exhibit, "Buddhist and Asian Art," featuring items such as a late 1600's Buddhist painting (pictured) and a white porcelain vase featuring characters that represent the concept of a "cleansed mind."

A reception will be held Saturday, July 13, 11 a.m.-noon, featuring a talk by Ock Hee titled "Compassion for the Living and Dead," based on Ock Hee's personal studies of Kwan Yin and Ji Zo Bodhisattvas. The exhibit will continue through August 24, with public viewing hours Monday-Saturday, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Admission is free. For more information, call 624-4730 or email
