Noted iconographer Ksenia Mihailovna Pokrovskaya will conduct an iconography workshop, titled “Six Days of Creation,” at Saint Tikhon’s Seminary here June 19-25, 2011.

One of the key individuals credited with keeping the ancient iconographic tradition alive during the Soviet Union’s most repressive era, Mrs. Pokrovsky’s contributions to preserving and passing on the art of the icon are well known, and acknowledged in Irina Yazykova’s engaging book, “Hidden and Triumphant: The Underground Struggle to Save Russian Iconography,” published by Paraclete Press in April 2010.
