Hidden World of the Czars: The Russian Empire in 3D Photographs
Drawing on a trove of never-before-shown historic photographs, this virtual tour of Czarist Russia spans the earliest days of photography in the 1850s to the fall of the regime in World War I. High resolution original stereophotos will be projected in 3 dimensions, as they were intended to be seen. See serfs in the squalor of 19th-century Russian peasant villages, bustling ports and cities of the new merchant classes, the glittering life of the czar and his court, and the wars and struggles that signaled the end of the empire. Through the magic of 3D, you can stroll the streets of Moscow, view houseboats in St. Petersburg, visit ancient monasteries, walk through villages and farms, visit with Tolstoy and his long-suffering wife Sonia, and stand in the trenches with conscripted Russian soldiers. This is a never-to-be-forgotten chance to see the once hidden and now vanished worlds of Russias storied past. Presented by Photoarchive3D (www.Photoarchive3D.org), a freshly digitized archive of 30,000 historic photographic images.

Ninth International Conference of Iconographic Studies: Icons and Iconology
Icons, iconography and iconology represent some of the most prominent concepts and research topics of art history. They refer both to a particular artistic practice, to liturgical objects, and to methods of art historical interpretations. Given this multitude of meanings and functions that the concepts of icon, iconic, iconography and iconology imply, it is not surprising that all of them have been interpreted as objects of theological reflection, didactic instruments, media of transmitting visual, aesthetic and metaphysical content, and, finally, as artworks in the modern sense of the word.

The conference seeks to explore and discuss recent development in the dialogue between theology, art history, philosophy and cultural theory concerning the ways we can perceive and interpret icons, iconography and iconology. It is also our objective to offer an insight into the development of iconographic studies and related disciplines, and to reflect upon their future development in the broader context of the humanities.

When: Jun 12, 2015 9 AM in Clinton, Massachusetts
Cost: Registration fee: $100; $75 for students w/ valid ID. (Fri, 12 Jun 2015 09 )
Byzantium to Russia
Byzantium to Russia: Origins and Development of Russian Icons, 1200 to 1900 featuring an exceptional, compelling selection of 48 icons and extraordinary artifacts from the British Museum traces the stylistic development of sacred art from ancient Byzantium, center of Christian civilization, to the introduction of Christianity to Russia. The exhibition of rare icons will also include Byzantine cast metal objects, ivories and engraved gems.

This is the first time the renowned British Museum in London has lent Saint John the Baptist (Constantinople c. 1300) and the famous Saint George and the Dragon (Pskov, late 14th century) to a Museum in the U.S.A. These extraordinarily rare icons-two of the oldest and finest icons in existence- alone are worth a visit to the exhibit. In addition to the icons and artifacts from the British Museum, the exhibition will be augmented with related icons from the collection of the Museum of Russian Icons. Following the exhibition in Clinton, MA the show will travel to the Chrysler Museum, Norfolk, VA.

The Origins and Development of Russian Icons was organized by the Museum of Russian Icons and curated by Museum Founder Gordon B. Lankton, Research Fellow Prof. Raoul Smith and Museum CEO and Curator
Kent Russell.

Introduction to Manuscript Illumination
This 4-hour hands-on workshop introduces students to the technical aspects of manuscript illumination, an art form that has been practiced for 3,000 years. A historical overview is followed by a detailed practicum of the methods of creating an original illumination. Instruction includes techniques and use of ornamental design, calligraphy, drafting, application of gold leaf to paper, and reproduction technology. Students will take home their own original illumination, a small watercolor set, and beginning drafting materials. This workshop is for ages 16 and older with an intermediate level of artistic skill and experience. Prior experience with manuscript illumination is not necessary. A 30-minute lunch break is included in the workshop schedule, though lunch is not provided. Please note: Preregistration required by June 13. (978) 598-5000 x21. Registration fees nonrefundable.

Workshop instructor Amy Fagin is among a handful of artists who have revived and redefined traditional manuscript illumination as a thoroughly contemporary art form. Through her studio, 20th Century Illuminations, she has been creating multi-layered, thematically inspired illuminations that celebrate life and human connections since 1985, and has taught illumination workshops around the world to students of all ages, from beginners to professional artists.
