The Tibetan Gallery & Studio
The Tibetan Gallery & Studio is the working studio of Tibetan master artist, Tashi Dhargyal which he opens for limited hours to the public weekly.
Visitors can view Tashi working on thangka (traditional Buddhist scroll paintings). Tashi is one of the few masters in the West working entirely in the traditional Tibetan method, which includes hand-prepared canvas, hand ground mineral pigments, and 24k gold.
Tashi’s studio in the Barlow has become home to a very unique project, the first thanbochi painted by a Tibetan outside of Tibet. This is a most auspicious endeavor for North America. A thanbochi is a very large thangka that is shown at special prayer ceremonies and brings blessings to all who see it. This massive undertaking will take five years to complete, the canvas measures 15×20 feet.
The Studio is located in The Barlow (6770 McKinley Street #130, Sebastopol, CA) and is open to the public on weekends, and by appointment.
It also features traditional Tibetan Menris thangka, and a small shop with beautiful art-quality prints, as well as one-of-a-kind items featuring Tashi’s art, fair-trade sourced gifts and jewelry, and small Buddhist shrine items.
