Southscribes Exhibition 'Inkspirations' 3 - 21 December 2011

Calligraphy is the Art of Beautiful Writing. This beautiful writing is what Calligraphy Southscribes, Inc will be exhibiting at their exhibition in December 2011 at the Hurstville City Museum & Gallery.

Calligraphy in the 21st Century is not only the traditional it also encompasses the modern thus commences the viewer’s artistic travel through the many scripts that members will display. The journey will begin with older style hands that have both historical and artistic value up until the modern mark making of today creating a different look and feel to calligraphy.

The artworks in Inkspirations: Playing with Pen and Ink are not only inspired by the tools or implements our artists use but also by words and how these words inspire us to produce our calligraphy.

This is the first time members of Calligraphy Southscribes, Inc. bring their work and love of calligraphy to the St George district in an exhibition and demonstration.

Calligraphy Southscribes was brought into being in March 1991 with a core of 36 people and has been providing lettering classes, specialised workshops, social activities and open fun afternoons for members and the public of the St. George and Sutherland Shire ever since.
Currently Calligraphy Southscribes, Inc. is the only operating calligraphy group south of the harbour.

The official opening of Inkspirations: Playing with Pen and Ink will be held on Saturday, 3 December 2011 at 2.00pm. All welcome.

This free exhibition will run until 22 December.
