|Andre Rublev's Redeemer Icon|
From Church of the Advent - This Saturday evening, July 21st at 6pm, we are extremely honored to welcome Father Anthony Salzman, priest at St. Philothea Greek Orthodox Church in Watkinsville, Ga, to speak to us at Advent about Iconography and Byzantine Art.
Fr. Anthony and his wife, Christine both graduated from Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology in Brookline, MA. in 1989. They lived in Thessaloniki, Greece for six years, where Fr. Anthony studied Byzantine Iconography and they immersed themselves in the life of the Church. They have two sons, Stephanos and Maximos.
Father Anthony is an artist/iconographer and continues today to paint icons for churches and families. You may see some of his work at www.imageandlikeness.com
He also is a guest lecturer at the Lamar Dodd School of Art, UGA Continuing Ed. School and OCAF (Oconee Cultural Arts Foundation), teaching about Byzantine Art History and Iconography and spreading the word about Orthodoxy through the arts.
His work was recently featured in Athens local news:
From Trinity - As Advent is our sister church, we would encourage all who are interested to go to this great event. It should be wonderful to hear a perspective on the convergence of theology, creativity & the beauty of the divine. See you on Saturday!
