The Art of the Icon. The Edinburgh School of Icon Painting, with Polish trained director Basia Mindewicz, makes a welcome return to the Festival with this exhibition of traditional and contemporary icons. Both styles are rooted in the Eastern Orthodox tradition and painted as a form of prayer and meditation using egg tempera and a modern version of encaustic technique. Contemporary icons employ a more personal language of art. Icons are available for purchase. Donations invited.
