Waynesburg University’s Department of Fine Arts will host an art show featuring artwork from artist Joni Zavitsanos and her late father, renowned Byzantine iconographer Diamantis Cassis.
The show, “My Father’s Daughter: Byzantine Art in the Modern World,” will run from March 21 through June 20. All are welcome and encouraged to attend.
Zavitsanos is a Byzantine iconographer and contemporary artist whose unique work explores the earliest form of Christian art and its reflection in the modern world. Her artwork joins collages of print clippings and the ancient images of Byzantine iconography in a mixed media format to show the sorrows of today’s world and the search for an answer from the Divine. She also draws inspiration from her father's work.
