An exhibition of mosaic icons created in the tradition of Byzantine masters will be at the Sheen Center for Culture and Thought.
Fashioned from tiny bits of glass that fit together to bring forth a divine image, the icons are created by Oksana Prokopenko. Prokopenko is a rarity in today's contemporary art scene. Her focus on detail is akin to that of artists that worked hundreds of years ago. Often described as a colorist, her colors inspire the viewer to spiritual and emotional heights similar to those felt by Prokopenko during her creative process. To quote Margo Grant, the Museum of Russian Art's director, "The soul of Prokopenko's work is in her walking that fine line between the transcendent and the ordinary."
Opening Reception: Thursday, December 20 @ 5PM.
