Coptic Jesus: Book Release + Show
Bradley Jersak + Shari-Anne Vis
Paintings in gouache, watercolour, pencil and india ink.
Thursday, Dec 1st. 6 – 9pm
SOMA Space: 2468 Scotia St. Vancouver BC
Orthodox Christian Children’s Book, Jesus Showed Us!, by Bradley Jersak, was released last month. Shari-Anne Vis, illustrator, will be exhibiting her paintings from the book, which are inspired by Coptic and Ethiopian Orthodox icons.  Icons were often considered not to be painted, but to be written, as they were telling the stories for those who did not have literacy.  These icons offered a rich, dramatic, colourful, and at times childlike framework from which to illustrate these scenes.  The goal of this book, is to remind us all of the radiant divinity of Jesus. 
Shari-Anne Vis received her BFA from OCADU, and is currently living and working in Vancouver. This is her second children’s book.  
Signed books and art prints will be available.  This is a family-friendly event; there will be an icon colouring station for children!
