Icons in Transformation

Ludmila Pawlowska, a Russian native, will give a talk on “Icons in Transformation” at  1 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 5, in Hargrove Auditorium. Her work has been described as "highlly original, in-your-face abstract art with a deeply spiritual feel."

Her dramatic 180-piece travelling exhibit of the same name will be on display at St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Chattanooga, Tenn., from Sept. 10–Nov. 10, 2013. It features contemporary icons she has created as well as some traditional icons painted by the monks of Vassilevsky Monastery in Russia. The exhibit presents the mystery and spiritual power of the icon transformed into modern masterpieces of art.

In conjuction with the display at St. Paul's, there is a speaker series, one of which features the Rev. Dr. Julia Gatta, professor of pastoral theology. Her talk, "Transformative Vision" will take place at St. Paul's on Wednesday, Sept. 18 at 6:30 p.m.
