Title: Iconography beautifies Santa Fe, NM church
Post by: biro on November 17, 2010, 10:49:42 AM
The Very Rev. John Bethancourt, pastor of Holy Trinity Orthodox Church in Santa Fe, New Mexico, called the church's beautiful iconography (http://www.santafenewmexican.com/Local%20News/Ancient-art-in-modern-shrine-Iconographer-s-work-a--dream-come-) "a dream come true." The artists who worked on the pieces were likewise very happy with the results.

From the article:
Quote
Dmitry Shkolnik, an iconographer for 25 years and head of the group, has painted more than 12 churches, but said he has found Holy Trinity Orthodox Church to be special.

He noted that the architecture (the building was designed by Michael Bertin of Architectural Harmonics in Boulder, Colo.) was particularly fascinating because it blends traditional Santa Fe elements with the architecture of the Byzantine Empire, a fusion that Bethancourt calls "Southwest Byzantine style."

I have passed by this Church several times while in Santa Fe (only about 45 minutes from where I live). I'll have stop in for a visit some time.
