Laural Virtues Wauters’ mesmerizing artwork explores the meditative art of the mandala. Creating a mandala is a form of active meditation that quiets your mind and allows you to journey within making the invisible visible.
Laural was born in Frankfurt, Germany and grew up in Algoma. She has written about her epic adventure of self-discovery and revelation in her new book, Tree Oracle: The True Story of Carmen Sylvia, which is available at Door to Door Books in Algoma.
Laural’s current series of artwork are colorful representations of the seven Chakras, as well as mandalas that she has visualized and created. For more information about her artwork, visit Laural’s website at www.mandalashaman.com or stop by The Eclipse Gallery at 507 4th St. (Hwy 42) in downtown Algoma.
We were fortunate enough to win two awards recently! Community Improvement of Algoma nominated us for the Best Interior Renovation project for the Wisconsin Main Street Program awards, and we won! That was very exciting, since the award is on a state-wide level. Here is a link to all of the winners and the press release.
We also won a Rose Award from the Algoma Chamber of Commerce, which is for helping to make the downtown more inviting. It was nice to be recognized for all of our hard work and we really appreciate it!
