ICON ART EXHIBIT
March 8 – April 9
In the Long Hall outside the Chapel
Artist’s Reception: NEW DATE! Sunday, March 19
Kathy Eich will do a demonstration of creating Icon art at the reception.
The Art & Design Committee will host a Lenten Art Exhibit featuring Icon Art— beautiful and intricate pictorial representations of Biblical scenes from the life of Jesus Christ, historical events in the life of the Church, and portraits of saints. Icons are usually two-dimensional images and may be made of paint, mosaic, embroidery, weaving, carving, engraving, or other methods. Featured artists in the exhibit are Lyudmila Pavlova, Marilyn Johnson, Kathy Eich, Roman Stepchuk & John Rajtar.
The example shown here is titled “Guardian Angel” — an angel that protects a particular person. Since the Early Church, Christians have prayed for guardian angels for all Christians; for instance, in the petition in the litanies: “An angel of peace, a faithful guide, a guardian of our souls and bodies, let us ask of the Lord.”
