A Smith Kramer traveling exhibition featuring 25 historically significant Russian icons that date from 1590 to the present. The exhibition defines icons, the historical process involved with creating them, and the historical background of their systematic destruction by the Iconoclasts (730–787 AD and 813–843 AD). Featured icons include images of St. Nicholas and St. George, Old Testament scenes, the life of Jesus and the Mother of God. The exhibition is drawn from the collection of the The Museum of Russian Icons in Clinton, Massachusetts (FB).

As  Previously posted during this exhibition there will be an Icon painting Class with Northwest Orthodox  Iconographer Deacon Matthew Garrett based in Boise, Idaho.
