      Art of Bryn Athyn's Nishan Yardumian
    • Wednesday, October 17, 2018
    • Glencairn Museum mounts an exhibition of 20 paintings and drawings by the late Bryn Athyn artist and arts instructor Nishan Yardumian (1947-1986). "A Window to the Soul: Nishan Yardumian's Biblical Art" opens Sunday, April 22, during the Museum's annual Sacred Arts Festival and continues through Sunday, November 4, in Glencairn's Upper Hall exhibition space. Yardumian taught painting in Bryn Athyn for many years, at both the Academy of the New Church Secondary Schools and Bryn Athyn College. A painter as well as a teacher, he was passionate about both professions. According to Yardumian, "Painting aims at the universal with the hopes that each individual can find his identification with it. Teaching aims at the individual with the hope of developing the universal." Visitors are welcome to tour the exhibition Tuesday through Friday as part of the Museum's regular 2:30pm "Highlights Tour" and on weekends 1-4:30pm (walk-ins welcome), as well as by appointment and when attending the Sacred Arts and Medieval Festivals. The exhibition is closed April 29 and May 26 for two concerts and on July 4. While there is no charge to view "A Window to the Soul," donations are accepted and access is included in tour and event admission.
