‘The timeless classical beauty, which icons express, continues to be relevant today. Harmonies in the lines and in the compositions create an inner peace. Dostoyevsky once wrote that, “Art will redeem the world”. “I believe this wholeheartedly”, says Anna Geldon, founder of this Polish icon painting school. She herself is an artist, art historian, as well as professional icon painter. Teaching icon painting over the years, she observes with both interest and joy, that not only do students improve their artistic skills but that they also develop their inner lives. She has come to the conclusion that icon painting opens the way to a contemplative spiritual journey.
We invite you to this exhibition to discover icons and hope that this will be the beginning of a deep and transformational journey, as well as an inspiration for further researches. During the exhibition there will be a rare opportunity not only to buy a hand painted icon but also to participate in a workshop (dates and price on application) during the exhibition. There will be the chance to hear Orthodox singers during the private view in celebration of this exhibition and an opportunity to sign up for a workshop in orthodox singing techniques.’ (PCI)
