Location: 627 Route 1, York, Maine (in the Eldredge Building)
Traditional Russian icon painting is truly one of the great artistic movements in the history of the world and has been a living and evolving art form for more than 1,000 years. Russian icons reveal a deep inner spirituality, incomparably matched by an intrinsic rhythm of line and harmony of coloring. Using numerous exhibits, including examples of her own work, Marina Forbes will examine the history of icon painting in Russia and will discuss the unique multiple nature of the icon as a sacred object, a product of an artistic tradition, a work of art with its own inherent aesthetic value, and a major example of our world cultural heritage. Anyone who has personal icons may bring them for examination and comment.
