This exhibit is the culmination of a year-long art journey. For one weekend a month during 2006, a small but dedicated group of Florida calligraphers met in Sarasota to study with Reggie Ezzell. None of us were beginners, but all of us spent a year growing. In addition to honing lettering skills, we were exposed to techniques—from watercolor washes to gilding—that can be used to enhance our work. We have spent the past several months preparing for this exhibit in order to share with the public some of what we have learned—and continue to learn. Influences from the class, combined with our varied exposures to other instructors and experience, are evident throughout this exhibit.
I hope you have an opportunity to see it, and if you know of others who might be interested in attending, please pass this email along to them!
