Praying with Icons Exhibition Opens at The Hostry Norwich Cathedral

St Seraphim's Trust is staging Praying with Icons – The Work of the Walsingham Iconographers at The Hostry, Norwich Cathedral until January 1, 2014.

Praying with Icons is the first exhibition of the work of the late Fr. David (d 1993) and Leon Liddament (d. 2010) of the Brotherhood of St. Seraphim, Walsingham. For more than forty years the iconographers made icons in the Orthodox Tradition, which can now be found in churches and private collections throughout the UK.

A reception was held at The Hostry on the evening of Wednesday, December 4 to mark the opening of the exhibition by the Bishop of Lynn, who is Father David’s nephew.

The exhibition features 30 icons painted by Father David and Leon Liddament, archive film and information about the process of painting an icon and the use of icons in liturgy.
