Reminder: Upcoming Silver Strand Art Group Tour: Monday, July 28, 2014

 The Silver Strand Art Group will visit the Getty Villa’s exhibition, Heaven and Earth: Art of Byzantium, on Monday, July 28, 2014.

 Christopher Knight, art critic for the Los Angeles Times, gave this exhibition a rave review (April 18,2014):

   Think of Byzantium, and a color leaps to mind. That color is gold.

  The empire ruled from the crossroads of the Mediterranean and the Black Sea for a    thousand years between AD 324 and its final collapse in 1453. At the Getty Villa in Pacific Palisades, where a rare and stunning exhibition of Byzantine art recently opened, gold is everywhere.

  Byzantine art wrapped a linear style of powerful abstraction in gold. That’s beautifully encapsulated in the Getty Villa’s galleries, comprising what is reportedly the largest show of its kind ever to be seen in Los Angeles.
