Events Description

This special exhibition, In Golden Light, features a selection of painted religious icons that date from the 15th to the 19th centuries, with origins in Greece, Italy and Russia. Often seen as windows to Heaven or pathways to the sacred, these icons served as objects for private worship and devotion.
Tracing events in the lives of Jesus and Mary, the selection of works in this exhibition provide religious instruction and are physical manifestations of Biblical teachings. On loan to the AGA from the University of Toronto, this rich exhibition marks the debut of the Malcove Collection in Edmonton.
