Windows into Heaven: Understanding Russian Icons - 2 September


Saturday 2 September, 10.15-15.30

Join us at Fintry in September for a day workshop looking at some important examples of Russian Icon painting, demonstrating how to decode Icon symbolism. We will examine some of the key biblical episodes focussed on by icon painters, while considering use of colour and composition in the portrayals. There will be time to contemplate key painters and miraculous stories associated with icons, as well as their use within homes and in Orthodox churches.

The speaker is Frances Eley, a lecturer in Classics and Archaeology for the Open University, who has particular research interests in ancient Mystery Religions. The day costs £20.00. For bookings and enquiries, contact 01428 682621 or fintry.administrator@btconnect.com.
