"Calligraphic Expressions," a show of current work by the members of Summit Scribes Calligraphy Guild, will be exhibited at Commonwheel Artists Co-op from August 17 to September 17.
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 traditional and non-traditional use of letterforms as 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. They host weekend workshops throughout the year where well-known calligraphers are brought in to teach. Members of the guild also teach workshops outside of guild meetings.
