Sacred Scenes: Icons of the Orthodox Church

Image: Christ Pantocrater (study for Church of the Holy Sepulchre, Jerusalem), mosaic, by Vlasios Tsotsonis

March 1 – June 1, 2014
Main Floor Gallery 


In cooperation with The Antiochian Orthodox Basilica of St. Mary, this exhibition presents works by world-renowned artist Vlasios Tsotsonis. In Michigan, Tsotsonis is known for the iconography that adorns Assumption Greek Orthodox Church in St. Clair Shores, but his artwork is found in churches across the globe, including one of Christianity’s pre-eminent pilgrimage sites, Jerusalem’s Church of the Holy Sepulchre.

In addition to original, large-scale pieces by the artist, the exhibition explores the establishment and growth of Arab American Orthodox communities. Also included are studies for work Tsotsonis is completing during the run of the exhibition at St. Mary in Livonia, MI, home to the artist’s first U.S. pieces.
