Calligraphy Guild Exhibition
Feb 22, 2020 - Mar 21, 2020
Opening Reception: February 22, 2-4 pm
The Calligraphers’ Guild of Northeastern PA began in 1980 with five founding members: Melissa Flannery Conway, Sheila Cutler, Rev. James Doyle, Eleanor Kraemer and Margaret Towne. Our current membership includes the local area as well as other cities and states.
The goals of the Guild are to promote the study and practice of calligraphy, encourage individual excellence and stimulate an appreciation for both history and application of calligraphy within the guild and community.
This exhibit includes work from our members as well as our newly formed friendship with the Philadelphia Calligraphers’ Society. The grouping consists of a variety of scripts, mediums, papers and individual styles. Calligraphers explore techniques learned in workshops and incorporate new ideas into their work, expressing themselves through the use of ink and various media.
