Chicago Calligraphy Collective Exhibit at Newberry Library

This is a reminder:

If any of my readers are in the Chicagoland area this weekend, check out the CCC's juried show, Exploration 2011, at the Newberry Library, 60 West Walton in Chicago.

This year marks the 25th anniversary of Exploration at the Newberry and in honor of that, the Newberry is hosting a special exhibit of all the past Purchase Prize Winners in the adjoining gallery. There is also an exhibit of French illuminated manuscripts in the gallery across the hall. Lots of beautiful calligraphy to drool over, folks!!!

The artists' reception is on Saturday from 11am - 3pm. There will be calligraphic demos, music, and a live calligraphic performance beginning at 1pm.

It's going to be a great day, so come out and join us!!!

P.S. That gorgeous logo up top was done by the super talented Pamela Paulsrud!
