EIKONOSTASIS: Solo Exhibition at Gallery5 in Richmond, 2 October 2009

Announcing my debut solo exhibition at Richmond's Gallery 5, 200 West Marshall Street, Richmond, VA 23220
The show will open First Friday, the 2nd of October 2009 at 7-10pm.

EIKONOSTASIS: The work of Stephanie M.T. Krehbiel

EXHIBITION STATEMENT: "I grew up examining collections of icons and iconostases of the Russian Orthodox Church; not only for their significance and utilization; but also for the fundamental appreciation of the artistic value; fusing both my eastern and western perspective and upbringing into a cohesive, singular image.

While the iconic subjects carry an archaic theme, the execution is of a modern hand and intent. Implementing photography, ink and washes on paper rather than egg tempera on wood, the media employed suggests modernity and impermanence.

This exhibition is an effort to revive the curiosity, artistic style and knowledge of both the historical and fictitious figures and to furthermore pay the due respect to the saint that cradled each icon as if it were a newborn baby. The Eikonostasis Series is an attempt to bridge the icon-inspired works into the 21st century and to acknowledge these subjects, but not to worship the narrative."

Contact Gallery 5 for further show details at (804) 644.0005 or contact artist: krehbieldesign@gmail.com

Prints will also be available for purchase.

I hope to see you all there! Many thanks to all for your support!
