ECVA’s “Mary, Mother Of Our Tribe”
National Recognition of Fabric Mosaic Marian Art
Golden Intercessor exhibited in Episcopal Church USA, national juried art show, December, 2012.
ECVA’s beautiful seasonal exhibit, Mary, Mother Of Our Tribe is a ‘telling and re-telling of the story of Mary’ through the visual arts.
Above is a screen shot of the beautiful mosaic of images produced by artists from around the country. With Advent upon us and Mary’s central role in the Christmas story, it is impossible to view this exhibit without contemplating the power of faith in our world.

The icon, Our Lady of Tsarkoe Selo, modeled after an ancient Byzantine icon, inspired this work. Traditionally created icons, being representations of sacred personages, are written following strict rules of color usage and postures depicting various religious significances. They are used as objects of veneration and aids to meditation in some Christian traditions. My fabric mosaic is intended to be contemporary and iconic in nature (without conforming to a prescribed set of rules) and is intended to assist the viewer in spiritual contemplation of the salvific role of Mary.
