(OAJ) - I’m very pleased to announce that I’ve partnered with the Sacred Arts Institute at Saint Vladimir’s Seminary to produce a major book featuring the best of North America’s Orthodox Liturgical Arts.
This will be a high-quality art book focused on presenting excellent color images. We will feature historic and contemporary churches, icons, furnishings, metalwork, textiles, manuscripts, and more. The focus will be on works of great beauty that adapt Old-World Orthodox tradition to New-World culture and contexts.
We need your help! With this announcement, we are making a continent-wide call for submissions and suggestions. Perhaps you know of interesting churches or beautiful artworks in the USA, Canada, or Mexico. If you’re an iconographer, furniture maker, or embroiderer, perhaps you’d like to make an artwork especially for this book. This project will be a once-in-a-generation opportunity to promote the artistic styles and standards which North American Orthodoxy seeks to exemplify.
Dr. Peter Bouteneff and I will co-edit the book and will curate the works to include. It will be published by SVS Press as part of the Sacred Arts imprint, which the Press is inaugurating in collaboration with the Institute of Sacred Arts.
Please visit the project website for detailed information. All submissions and questions should be directed to the contact information on the website:
