CCC's 8" x 10" Exhibit



The Chicago Calligraphy Collective's All-Members' Show, called "8 x 10" will be up at the Skokie, IL Public Library from September 10 until October 22.

I did this logo a while back for the event.







And finished this piece last week to put in the show. This is one of three that I'm submitting. The quote reads:

"Abstract art enables the artist to perceive beyond the tangible; to extract the infinite out of the finite. It is the emancipation of the mind. It is an explosion into unknown areas." ~ Arshile Gorky

When I'm playing with shape, line and movement, I often experience that "emancipation of the mind" as I delve into areas that are out of my comfort zone. It's in those "unknown areas" where I often meet the Lord, and where I feel He helps me "extract the infinite out of the finite."

TERRIFIC logo design, Julie!!! And I am intrigued by the abstract piece, love the quote, too... it's an area I'm very interested in of late myself. Kudos to you on such beautiful work!
