An exhibition of icons and religious paintings by the late Alexis Arapoff is now on display in the John J. Burns Library. Arapoff, whose works also were exhibited in the Museum of Fine Arts, was noted for a style which, while modern and distinctive, was true to the icon tradition.
Complementing the exhibition will be a concert on Feb. 21 of Russian sacred music by the Andrei Rublev Choir, conducted by Arapoff's daughter, Mary. The concert will take place in Burns Library at approximately 12:40 p.m., following the noon Mass at St. Mary's Chapel.
