The Spiritual Journey of Nicholas & Helena Roerich

Roerich Book Cover Nicholas and Helena Roerich were Russian visionaries who believed that beauty could unify humanity. Nicholas was a well-known artist in the vivid style of 20th century “mystical” art, and Helena was co-author of the Agni Yoga series of writings.

Ruth Abrams Drayer has written a dual biography of the couple, entitled Nicholas & Helena Roerich: The Spiritual Journey of Two Great Artists and Peacemakers. This Thursday night, July 10 at 7 p.m., Ms. Drayer will present a video and discussion of these two advocates of peace and their world travels, including their connection in the 1920’s to Santa Fe archeologist Edgar Hewitt and artists of the Los Cincos Pintores group.

The program will be in the Community Room of the Main Library at 145 Washington Ave. and is free and open to the public.
