“We find greater lightness & ease in our lives as we increasingly care for ourselves & other beings.” – Sharon Salzberg

ÆRENA Galleries and Gardens invites you to celebrate Lightness of Being, a showcase featuring the paintings of Thomas Monaghan.

Since a young age, Monaghan has found that spending time at the water’s edge elicits a soothing and restorative feeling. Through his artwork, Monaghan hopes the viewer finds solace and peace in witnessing the soft applications of paint layered to recreate the shimmer and shine of sunlight reflecting on the surfaces of water.

Whether peering through the foliage that opens across to a distant shore, or studying the way light plays across water, each one of Monaghan’s artworks is a meditation on the natural world around us.

With Lightness of Being, Monaghan is inviting you into his world of growth, restoration, and reflection.

We invite you to join us for our latest showcase, Lightness of Being, on view in our gallery locations and online.
