Icons in Transformation on View at Calvary Episcopal Church
Icons in Transformation, a dramatic 120 piece traveling exhibit, includes the contemporary work of acclaimed Russian abstract expressionist, Ludmila Pawlowska, along with Russian traditional icons from the Vassilevsky Monastery/Suzdal. After touring cathedrals of Europe and the United States, this must-see exhibit is now in Memphis at Calvary Episcopal Church through June 22.
The works on view also include large, sculptural pieces, many of which will be suspended in the church, providing a stunning and dramatic visual impression. Local artist and exhibit docent Katie Dann talks about Lumila Pawlowska's work and how Calvary came to host the only Mid-South showing.
The exhibit, which is free to enter, is available Tuesdays through Fridays, from 10 am to 3 pm, or by special arrangement. The artist will be at Calvary for a gallery reception at 6 pm on June 22.
