Sacred Silence: The Practice of Iconography
-Curated by Chantal Heinegg
Sunday, September 7 – Thursday October 9
Sunday, September 7, 1:00 – 3:00 pm
Icons are one of the most ancient and best known forms of Christian sacred art. While playing an essential role in the Eastern Rite churches, icons continue to attract a wide audience from the Western Rite. Icons open up a window for instruction, prayer and meditation. Join us for an exhibition of the work of four local icon painters and learn about the meaning of this traditional practice. Artists: Chantal Heinegg, Ofelia Manero, Barbara Vartenigian, Marek Czarnecki.
