Conversations: Engaging Ethiopian Iconography

Please join us for the opening reception of Blackfriar Gallery’s new exhibit, “Conversations: Engaging Ethiopian Iconography” by Bonnie Hardwick, Sunday, September 25, 2022, from 2 to 4 p.m.

Bonnie Hardwick, former director of the Graduate Theological Union Library and long-time iconographer, explores the multicultural influences expressed in the Ethiopian iconographic tradition. The conversation is multivalent: the iconographer’s engagement with the subject, the relationship between the icon and the viewer, the conversation within the icon itself, and ultimately an encounter with the Divine.

The exhibit will be on display until December 16.
