Calligraphy and the lettering arts enhance life with beauty, artistic satisfaction and useful skill, as well as delightful connections to art, literature, design, and other cultures. For more than 30 years, the Triangle Calligraphers’ Guild (TCG) has promoted the lettering arts here in the Triangle area and eastern North Carolina. Our members are calligraphers of all levels of interest and skill, from beginners and dabblers to part-time artists and full-time pros, and we all learn from each other.

April – June 2018 Exhibit event

Come see our talented member Ann Erickson’s calligraphy exhibit!

The Wing’ed Pen – in whose flight the soul’s expression soars

Calligraphy Exhibit by Ann Erickson (Illuminations Custom Calligraphy)

Apr 27 – Jun 23, 2018

Exhibit is presented by the Town of Cary: Cary Arts Center

Map: 101 Dry Ave, Cary, North Carolina 27511

Artist’s Reception: April 27, 2018 6-8 pm.
Show will exhibit through June 23, 2018.

A versatile collection of calligraphic quotes in many alphabet styles rendered in various media such as 24K gold leaf, gouache, Chinese stick ink and embossing on surfaces such as handmade paper, sheepskin vellum and hot press watercolor paper.

The exhibit shows some of the varied applications of Calligraphy as an art form. Whereas calligraphy is often relegated to the wedding industry, to “crafting” orientations, or thought of as emanating from dusty scriptoriums, it is finally accepted today as fine art.

As a professional calligrapher for more than 35 years, Ann has used her gifts to produce illuminated manuscripts, resolutions, poems, quotes and scripture verses, as well as all aspects of wedding work. Illuminating with gold leaf is her favorite.
