Iconographers will display and demonstrate the art of writing icons. Paul Finley, Executive Director of Antiochian Village Retreat Center will also present "Icons, Not Idols: A Call to Christians to Give Their Sight to God" on
Saturday (11:00 am & 2:00 pm) and Sunday (2:00 pm).

The Hermitage of the Holy Cross will have antique Russian icons on display and for sale.

If I lived just a little closer, I would be there in a heartbeat! I collect icons, vintage and new. I would love this!

Oh, I wish you lived closer, too, Willow. I'd relish the opportunity to meet you in person, especially at something as colorful and inspiring as the Icon Festival. There's also a book festival going on in town tomorrow - should be a fun weekend = ' )
