Exhibitions Doorways to the Divine | Icon painters

Doorways to the Divine | Icon painters
Saturday 17 January - Sunday 8 February 2015 10:00am - 6:00pm
St Margaret's House

Opening night | Friday 16 January

Curated by Basia MindewiczDoorways to the Divine features work by six artists who are exploring the idea of art as a spiritual path. Some of the work on show is inspired by the traditions of Christian or Buddhist iconography, depicting figures such as angels which symbolize states of prayer and contemplative vision.  Others are interested in the possibility of directly channelling imagery from a universal spiritual source.

By showing their work together in Gallery 3 of St Margaret’s House, the aim is to create a reflective, sacred space in which visitors may find a sense of sanctuary – and their own doorways to the divine.

Free admission. All welcome.

 

There will also be “Icon-Painting in the 21st Century – Doorway to the Divine”, a free talk with slides lead by Andrew Paterson. Sunday 18 January, 11am. Free admission.

Followed by a taster workshop in icon painting from 12pm. Donations welcome.
