LOTS o'Photos: Exhibition&Course+New Course in NYC

Happy the 4th of July for all our american friends!

Hello everybody!

In this Newsletter is mostly with Photographs.

FIRST:  Photographs of our Exhibition in Dadian Gallery:


For now yet I am not publishing photographs of the icons, hope at least some of you may have a possibility to see them in real, in real colors, textures, lights and other material aspects... Especially because my computer color correction is still very bad :)

The exhibition now has an official Press Release >>

SECOND: Photos from the Iconography course in Wesley Seminary:


It was a good course, and I hope we all learned something good! And I am truly grateful to Wesley Seminary to make this happen, personally to Deborah Sokolove for accepting the workshop and to Amy Gray, who did a great job! Thanks everybody who joined the group, and - there is a hope, that there may be another course next year!

THIRD: More news about our future courses

Unfortunately we had to cancel our September course in San Diego (CA), but turns out, that it is even better this way!

During last two weeks I have had lots of conversations about various possibilities for our courses, so we may announce the program of our workshops for 2015 in the nearest weeks.

And 2 positive news:

I. The True Fresco course in Saint Mary's College in Calgary (September 6-8) is booked full.

II. We are about to launch one more iconography Workshop (September 22-26), which is going  to take place in the very core of New York City, - in a Greek Orthodox church of Annunciation (302 West 91st Street).

Let us know if you are interested. Right now we are looking for some housing posibilities for the students.

All the other courses in US, Canada and Austraia seem to be just as scheduled – Calgary and Saint Mary's City, - see the full schedule at our website: http://sacredmurals.com/index.htm#tabs-1
