Huntington Calligraphers’ Guild: Celebrating 30 Years
July 12 - October 12, 2014
Handwriting is a visual spatial activity and fosters creativity. When we write, we’re not only memorizing the letters on the paper but also the process and the experience of shaping them. Writing by hand allows a feeling of focused peacefulness. A group in our area that has concentrated on the art and techniques of beautiful handwriting for 30 years will be the focus of this exhibit in the Museum’s Bridge Gallery from July 12 – October 12, 2014. The Huntington Calligraphers’ Guild was established in September of 1984. Since the beginning, and still today, the group has held monthly meetings in the studios of the Huntington Museum of Art. This partnership is being celebrated with this display of 20 to 30 works.
