On Thursday, December 12th, 2013 at 7:00 P.M., Fr. Aidan Wilcoxson and the clergy and congregation of St. John the Forerunner Church in Cedar Park, Texas (near Austin) will host a presentation by one of the world’s premier Orthodox iconographers and craftsman, Aidan Hart. Hailing from England, Aidan Hart’s work is displayed online at aidanharticons.com. The event is free and open to the public. A brief reception will be follow, and refreshments will be served, but we ask that you please make your own arrangements for child-care.

Aidan Hart is one of the world’s premier liturgical craftsmen. He works as an icon and fresco painter, and as a sculptor and woodworker. In the last thirty years, over 700 of his commissioned pieces have been installed in Orthodox, Anglican, and Roman Catholic parishes and monasteries, in more than twenty countries. Aidan has written extensively about the liturgical arts; he is a much sought-after speaker and teacher. Two of his special interests are the iconographic traditions of Western Europe and the relationship between the traditional liturgical arts and contemporary art.
