Present Absence: Icons from the Collection of the Patriarch Athenagoras Orthodox Institute

Opening Reception, Thursday, February 5, 2015 | 5-7pm

This exhibition invites us to explore the paradoxical nature of icons as embodiments of both material beauty and divine presence. These 16 icons, primarily 18th- and 19th-c. works from Russia, comprise the first exhibition from the collection of the Patriarch Athenagoras Orthodox Institute. Exhibit runs from February 3 - May 29, 2015
