I wanted to give all my reader's a heads up about the next juried art show of the Chicago Calligraphy Collective. It will be up from March 15 through May 28 at the Newberry Library in Chicago.
The opening reception will be held on Saturday, March 27, from 11 am to 3 pm. There will be calligraphy demonstrations from 11:30 am to 1 pm. At 1:00, Rick Valicenti, from Thirst, will be our featured speaker. Rick was a speaker at Letters Mingle Souls, the 2008 calligraphy conference, and thoroughly delighted the crowd with his engaging style. He brings to the calligraphic community an interesting perspective from the world of graphic design and typography. It's a program you won't want to miss!
And, of course, after Rick's presentation, the winner of the 2010 Newberry Library Purchase Prize Award will be announced.
If you're in the area on March 27th, please drop by for a visit. The reception is free to the public and refreshments will be served.
