The exhibition at Herkimer County Community College’s Cogar Gallery, running from August 12 to September 23, introduces viewers to the art and history of icon painting, the symbolism of icons and their role in Orthodox worship, and various styles and methods of producing icons.

It also explores the work of iconographers at Holy Trinity Monastery in Jordanville, where traditional icon painting has been practiced for decades.

The exhibition features icons in a variety of media and techniques: painted with egg tempera, cast in metal, carved from wood and mother-of-pearl, painted on enamel, engraved on silver, embroidered, and printed. The icons are supplemented with religious objects – vestments, chalices, liturgical Gospels, and blessing crosses.

Since you are here…

…we do have a small request. More and more people visit Orthodoxy and the World website. However, resources for editorial are scarce. In comparison to some mass media, we do not make paid subscription. It is our deepest belief that preaching Christ for money is wrong.

Having said that, Pravmir provides daily articles from an autonomous news service, weekly wall newspaper for churches, lectorium, photos, videos, hosting and servers. Editors and translators work together towards one goal: to make our four websites possible - Pravmir.ru, Neinvalid.ru, Matrony.ru and Pravmir.com. Therefore our request for help is understandable.

For example, 5 dollars a month is it a lot or little? A cup of coffee? It is not that much for a family budget, but it is a significant amount for Pravmir.

If everyone reading Pravmir could donate 5 dollars a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.
