An Ancient Artform in the Modern World

Jul 9, 2014

A fresco panel in process.

  A 4,000 year-old art form is alive and well in a Santa Rosa Orthodox church. In this story from the KRCB archives, the North Bay Report visited an artist who was applying that ancient technique to a contemporary building in Santa Rosa, in December, 2005.

In this area near the altar, the entire available surface is now covered with completed fresco art.

  Since this report was first broadcast, the fresco painting at St. Seraphim has continued, recently including parts of the high domed ceiling. To see pictures of those murals at St. Seraphim, including slideshows of the works as they are created, click here.
