2018 Spring Calligraphy Exhibit

Calligraphy Exhibit by TCG member Ann Erickson:
“The Wing’ed Pen – in whose flight the soul’s expression soars”

Dates: Apr 27 – Jun 23, 2018
Artist’s Reception: April 27, 2018 6-8 pm.

Exhibit is presented by the Town of Cary, at the Cary Arts Center

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.
