1037 Silvermine Road, New Canaan, CT
Cecilia Moy Fradet's new exhibit "Dreams of Devotion and Delight" explores the inner landscape of the artists' dreams, blending the commercial with the spiritual. Ms. Fradet was born in Hong Kong and raised, in the 1960s as a Christian, in New York City, the melting pot of American culture. Added with her Buddhist roots, the iconic images from Ms. Fradet's childhood mingled with her constant companion, Mickey Mouse, who she watched constantly on TV and adored. Delighting in the pop culture of Mickey, the material expression of joy and all things possible, Cecilia melds Mickey and Buddha into one sacred Mandala, thereby blending the commercial with the spiritual.
