Gallery Walk Art Show Throughout September

From time to time at special services at St. Paul’s, Ivy we have borrowed the icons of the Rev. Mary Beth Wells to enhance the beauty of our liturgy. Rev. Wells has often opened her studio to our parishioners, that they may study the spiritual discipline of icon writing, an artistic practice that focuses on the icon as liturgy and a visual way into the Word of God.

Throughout the month of September, Mary Beth is showing her art at Westminster-Canterbury, featuring icons and oil-painted antique tinware in the Zhostovo style. Inspired by Russian and Byzantine icons, Mary Beth’s works are made with egg tempera on wooden boards, using all natural elements. Her tinware trays are equally beautiful, and reflect her love of gardening.
