ICONOGRAPHY DEMOS

Most icons found today are either murals on the walls of Orthodox Churches or portable icons done on wooden panels used in churches or homes for prayer. According to theology and ecclesiastic tradition, the iconographer prepares to create an icon through prayer and fasting.  Iconographers, including Colette Kalvesmaki and Maria Manley, will be conducting Byzantine iconography demonstrations during the Bazaar.   They will also have hand painted icons and greeting cards available for sale. Stop by to see them work and ask questions about this ancient and holy aid to prayer.
