Words of Wisdom
by The Calligraphy Society of Victoria
The Calligraphy Society was founded 40 years ago with aim of fostering the love and appreciation of calligraphy which could be defined as the art of producing writing that is both fine and legible. These days however, that definition is being challenged by contemporary calligraphers who are producing innovative, gestural and artistic interpretations of calligraphic scripts, using a wide variety of inks, paints and surfaces. In fact, calligraphers will find a way to write on almost anything. Gilding, embossing, collage and artistic decoration can be combined with writing.
This exhibition celebrates the 40th anniversary of the Society with a display of works created by members showcasing our love of the letterform.
