Metes Hall  |  20 May 2006

THE EXHIBIT OF ICONS ON GLASS was a lovely and wonderfully unique evening. For the all-too-brief showing Metes Hall was transformed into the perfect gallery for the 31 beautiful icons displayed. Rev Dr Remus Grama of Cleveland gave a very informative opening talk on the history of such works, and of those on display, created by +Fr Timotei Tohaneanu at the Brancoveanu Monastery in Transylvania. As those in attendance milled about the gallery throughout the evening to study the icons, Bianca Hotea’s piano playing was enjoyed by all, as were hors d’oeuvres and wine. We look forward to future shows hosted by the Cathedral Cultural and Heritage Committee.
