Icons: A Tale of Faith, Art, and History
October 1 @ 1:00 pmFree
In Orthodox Christianity an icon is a sacred image, a window into heaven. An image of another reality, of a saint, time and place that is more real than here and now. More than art, icons have an important spiritual role. An icon is theology in imagery, the icon expresses through color and forms what the Gospel proclaims in words. This exhibits comprises six sketches of the large alter icons currently residing in the All Saints Orthodox Church in Fargo as well icons drawn in the medieval style of iconography when this art was in its apogee.
