In Golden Light: Orthodox Icons from the Annunciation to Ascension
December 7, 2019 - April 12, 2020
This exceptional exhibition features a magnificent collection of painted Christian icons that date from the 15th to the 19th centuries, with origins in Greece, Serbia, and Russia. Often seen as windows to Heaven or pathways to the sacred, these icons serve 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.
