About this event
“IMAGES OF GLORY” ICON SHOW AT ST. MARK’S EPISCOPAL IN APRIL Starting April 5, St. Mark’s on the Campus Episcopal Church, 1309 R Street in Lincoln, will host “Images of Glory,” an exhibition that showcases religious icons created by Omaha artist Jane Tan Creti. Work of her students, Kyoko Fuller and Joan McDonough, also will be included in the more than twenty icons on display. The public is invited to the exhibition, beginning with a First Friday opening reception from 4-6 p.m. on April 5. The artist will hold a mini-workshop on writing icons from 9:30 a.m.-12 p.m. on Saturday, April 6. (Even though a religious icon is created by applying paint to a surface, in America, an artist is said to “write” an icon in part because each icon tells a story.) The workshop is free, but space is limited, so registration is required. The public is also invited to a talk by Fr. Jerry Thompson on praying with icons at 12:15 p.m. on Sunday, April 7. The exhibition will hang in the parish hall throughout the month of April and will be open to the public 9:30 a.m to 3 p.m. weekdays, as well as 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Sundays. To register for the workshop, call St. Mark’s on the Campus Episcopal Church, 402-474-1979. --30--
