Irenic Thoughts

Irenic. The word means peaceful. This web log (or blog) exists to create an ongoing, and hopefully peaceful, series of comments on the life of King of Peace Episcopal Church. This is not a closed community. You are highly encouraged to comment on any post or to send your own posts.


Light of the World

Click here to see more of the exhibitThe Episcopal Church and the Visual Arts has a new online exhibit for Advent and Christmas called Light of the World. At right is Krystyna Sanderson's photograph from the exihibit, Places of Light #3. The full exhibit shows work in a variety of media including textiles as well as paintings and photographs.

There is a Thumbnail Gallery of the images or you can enter through the Curator's Statement, where she writes of the exhibit saying in part,
Peggy Parker's Here I AmFor Light of the World, ECVA invited members of The Artists Registry to engage in a visual exploration of these images of light, asking them to submit works that “give vision to the longing for light in the darkness and the growing anticipation of the birth of Christ,” reflecting “our search in darkness for the mystery of life-giving light.” In selecting images for the show I looked for works of artistic excellence which give visual expression to the theme in ways appropriate to each artist’s chosen medium. Many of the submissions are appropriate for Christmas and Epiphany as well as for Advent, and the selected works constitute a celebration of all three seasons.
