St Paul's Anglican Church on Calazada de Cardo #6 will present a rare opportunity to spend time with Mary Jane Miller, a full time resident of San Miguel who has 20 years experience creating classic iconography. She will casually discuss the ancient technique of egg tempera and history of this forgotten art form while showing new work and images reflecting her latest insights on women. Classic iconography offers a unique window into the spiritual traditions of the Byzantine Church and has begun to emerge in liturgy and art collections around the world.
In her talk, Mary Jane Miller will focus on a wide variety of Images and lesser known voices of women. The slideshow will feature Miller's iconic Mary Collection followed by her unorthodox renovation of an abandoned chapel while living on a Greek island with her husband in 2015. The conclusion will be a sneak preview of some iconographic images from her next book drawing on the significance of Mary Magdalena's absent voice and its lasting effect in the church and in religious art.
Miller's discussions are lively, provocative and often thought provoking. After 20 years in an art form full of symbols, Miller will surely challenge the listeners to think of women in iconographic tradition differently and to see the opportunity for more study and questioning into the lives of Women who are rarely noticed but who have a significant impact in history
A wine reception with light appetizers will follow.
