6 - 12 May 2019 - Pūmanawa
After the 2011 Christchurch earthquake, the St Nicholas Russian Orthodox Church in Sydenham began a long-term project of rebuilding its church, as well as the community spirit.
The several-years-long job developed into a major art project based on traditions such as frescoes, iconography, stained glass, mosaics and textiles. Most of the work was completed by professional New Zealand artist Galina Kim and Australia-based iconography expert Father Alexis, with community members also sharing their talents.
This is a photography exhibition of the church’s art to share its beauty and aesthetics with people from outside the church community.
Dates: Monday 6 May to Sunday 12 May 2019
Times: 10.00am to 5.00pm
Venue: Pūmanawa community gallery, level one, Boys’ High building, the Arts Centre te Matatiki Toi Ora, 28 Worcester Boulevard.
