Calligraphic Expressions: Opening reception
August 17, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
August 17—September 17, 2018
Receptions: Friday, August 17 and September 7, 5-8pm
“Calligraphic Expressions”, a show of current work by members of Summit Scribes Calligraphy Guild, will be exhibited at Commonwheel Artists Co-op from August 17 to September 17. The opening night reception is August 17, 5:30 – 8:30 and the show is included in First Friday Art Walks on September 7.
In this exhibit, Summit Scribes Calligraphy Guild members demonstrate the many faces of modern-day calligraphic expression. All types of work from traditional letter forms to abstract calligraphic marks on two- and three-dimensional surfaces will be represented.
Work will include all aspects of contemporary lettering arts, including book arts, as well as the traditional and non-traditional use of letterforms as an expression.
Summit Scribes Calligraphy Guild is a group of calligraphers, lettering artists, bookmakers, and hobbyists who gather monthly to study lettering, the book arts, and related topics. We host weekend workshops throughout the year where well-known calligraphers are brought in to teach. Members of our guild also teach workshops outside of guild meetings.
