Icon Exhibit, "Imaging the Invisible: Angels, Demons, Prayer & Wisdom"

Joy to All Who Suffer, c. 1750

For those of you in the Boston area (or will be by February 2, 2013), here's an exhibition of Russian Orthodox icons that you might want to check out, at the The Museum of Russian Icons.  The show's description states:

The great masters of iconography developed the use of symbolism to depict otherworldly beings and imprecise subjects such as angels, demons, prayer, and wisdom. Over time, these developed into beautiful and sometimes mysterious images.


  1. Scott, did you see my post about Alexander Gassel?

  2. Yes, that's how I found out about the museum! For the rest of you reading this: Alexander Gassel is a conservator at the Museum of Russian Icons and will have a show of his own personal work at the museum next year. He currently has a exhibit up at the North River Gallery, and you can find out more about him at Kirsten's blog here:
