WINDOWS ON HEAVEN
WINDOWS ON HEAVEN: Contemporary Icons.
Nails in the Wall Gallery
January 19 through May 15, 2013
Reception - Saturday, January 19, 2-5pm
An Exhibit featuring multiple works by six well-known iconographers, several who “write” religious icons in the very traditional Byzantine style, others who, while they work in that spirit, have developed a very personal approach to icon painting. The issues of depth of spirituality, conversion, transformation, suffering, are presented by each of these artists in dramatically different ways and yet ways that are visually relevant to our times.
