Russian Iconography: 1,000 Years of Tradition will be presented on Sunday, September 11, 2016 from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm at the Seacoast Artists Association Gallery, 130 Water Street, Exeter, NH.
Traditional Russian icon painting has been a living and evolving art form for more than 1,000 years. This illustrated presentation by Marina Forbes deals with the spiritual and secular significance of Russian religious art from the 10th century to the present day. Icon-making involves the painting of stylized religious images on wood using traditional natural materials and techniques which are determined by longstanding conventions.
