What: The Spirit Room will host an exhibit of Iconography drawings and paintings in Gallery II. The exhibition, titled, “Icons: A Tale of Faith, Art, and History”, by classically trained Bulgarian artist, Milena Marinov, will show from September 5th through November 11th 2017. This exhibit is a part of a community-wide series titled Illuminating the Word: The Saint John’s Bible organized by the Historical and Cultural Society of Clay County.
Iconographer Milena Marinov states, “In Orthodox Christianity an icon is a sacred image, a window into heaven, an image of another reality, of a saint, time and place that is more real than here and now. More than art, icons have an important spiritual role. An icon is theology in imagery; the icon expresses through color and forms what the Gospel proclaims in words.”
This exhibit is sponsored in part by the Arts Partnership and the North Dakota Council on the Arts.
Who: Open to the public
