St. James to Feature Icon Art and Taize Music Religious icons – images of holy men and women or scenes -- are often described as windows into heaven because of their ability to draw observers into the divine presence of God. Beginning in the sixth century, church leaders used icons to share the Word of God with followers – most of whom could not read. Modern religious icons continue to inspire the faithful and, in that tradition, St. James by-the-Sea Episcopal Church in La Jolla soon will feature the works of The Rev. Paige Blair, a nationally known iconographer. The Icon Art Show will run for two weekends, Oct. 9-11 and Oct. 17-18, in the St. James Library at 743 Prospect St. The iconographer, who is the rector of St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Del Mar, will greet guests at 5:30 pm on opening night, Oct. 9, and on Oct. 11 & 18 to discuss her works and answer questions. On the Saturdays and Sundays the show will run from 10:00 to 3:00. Original icons and posters will be offered for sale, with 10 percent of the proceeds going to charity.
