      “Art for Wellness” Exhibition
      November & December
      Opening Reception November 10 2 – 6 pm

      Sujata Tibrewala, an engineer turned artist from India is now exhibiting at Urban Brain and Body, LLC.
      Sujata Tibrewala’s doctor suggested she resign from her job when he diagnosed her with Fibromyalgia, a condition of the nerves and muscle circuits which enhances the feeling of pain, and leaves many crippled.
      She was a mother, an engineer, an environmental advocate, and a dancer. To be reduced to being in bed all day, for a person like her was not easy. At the advice of her doctor, she picked up her brushes despite the crippling pain. From that point onwards the brushes guided her through the process of recovery. The results started showing and the five minutes of her brush time, slowly increased to an hour, and went up to all today.
      Today she is a full time artist, and believes in the connection of mind and body. When the Urban Brain and Body invited her to show her work with them, she was excited. She feels totally connected to the philosophy of training the brain for she has experienced it herself on her road to recovery.
      Her painting “Music Within” speaks of the natural rhythms of seasons internalized in human mind and body through centuries. Do we need to be taught to feel sad on cold dark winter nights, or feel happy with the sunshine? Mirage speaks of a green dreams, whereas Change is constant and Lights outside my window celebrate the “not so welcome” change in the seasons. Cosmos shows a celebration which could be happening at the grand cosmic scale, or something happening, at the deep subatomic levels. The large and the small, the cosmos and the micro world, they appear the same, it is hard to tell them apart. Just like in art, there are no right answers in the real world.
