The Kairos Gallery of St. Andrew’s is very excited to share with you East Meets West: Women Icon Makers of West Ukraine. This very special and timely exhibit is the premiere of a Sacred Art Pilgrim Collection curated by John A. Kohan. There will be a Grand Opening for the greater Charleston community Friday, July 1, 6-8PM which will include hors d’oeuvres by Euro Foods Bakery & Café and a display and presentation at 7:00PM by CHS4Ukraine to raise awareness about ways to support the people of Ukraine.

East Meets West pays tribute to 8 innovative women icon makers of Ukraine, a land where East meets West, a nation at the historic continental divide where Europe confronts Russia and the Latin and Byzantine worlds collide and converge. These 8 artists, students of a new school of iconography in the West Ukrainian cultural center of Lviv, have achieved recognition in a religious art genre traditionally dominated by men.

We hope you’ll join us on Friday, July 1 to experience this wonderful evening with us. For St. Andrew’s attendee’s who cannot make it to the Grand Opening, there will be another opening Sunday morning July 3. For more information contact Kristy Barry (KBarry@StAndrews.Church  or 843.284.4351).
