In Golden Light: Orthodox Icons from Annunciation to Ascension

Tuesday, February 18, 2020 11:00 AM - 5:00 PM

This special exhibition, In Golden Light, features a selection of painted religious icons that date from the 17th to the 19th centuries, with origins in Greece, Serbia and Russia. Often seen as windows to Heaven or pathways to the sacred, these icons served as objects for private worship and devotion. Tracing events in the lives of Jesus and Mary, the selection of works in this exhibition provide religious instruction and are physical manifestations of Biblical teachings. On loan to the AGA from the University of Toronto, this rich exhibition marks the debut of the Malcove Collection in Edmonton. Organized by the Art Gallery of Alberta and the Art Museum at the University of Toronto. Exhibit runs until April 12, 2020. Art Gallery of Alberta, 2 Sir Winston Churchill Square, Edmonton. For hours and admission fees: telephone: 780-422-6223 or go online to: www.youraga.ca
