Matthew Schultz’s newest body of work will be on display at the Springfield Art Association through March with an opening reception Saturday, March 3, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Shultz is a local multi-media artist and experimental musician whose exhibit will not only feature 30 of his more than 100 mandalas, but includes an accompaniment of his original soundtrack of the mandalic structure of sound and how it is represented in cymatics – the study of visible sound and vibration. Mandalas are considered sacred art in many religions. Recent research has shown that mandala meditation can assist in the healing process for cancer patients and those suffering from chronic pain or illness. Shultz hopes to expand the project with a DVD, book and medical therapy and research.
