dec.1st | coptic jesus: book release & show

We love sharing the creativity of our audience members with you! Our friend Sheri-Anne Vis will be showcasing her illustrations at the upcoming COPTIC JESUS book release and show.

Coptic Jesus: Book Release and Show
Bradley Jersak & Shari-Anne Vis
Paintings in gouache, watercolour, pencil and india ink.
Thursday December 1st. 6:00- 9:00 PM
SOMA Space: 2468 Scotia Street, 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 written rather than painted as they were telling stories for those who were not literate. These icons offered a rich, dramatic, colourful and at times, child-like framework from which to illustrate these scenes.

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!  To see more of her work, visit
