Event description

Description

The work of the calligrapher, the specific and intended arrangement of 26 simple characters, is unique amongst the visual arts in that we are held to the literally “carved in stone” rules of our craft, to create the perfectly formed letter. …..or are we?


Rick Paulus explores calligraphy in the digital age by first taking us on a quick and fascinating journey through time to creatively illustrate not only the shapes and mechanics of the letters of the Roman alphabet, but calligraphy’s important role in the progress of humanity. As we enter the twentieth-century, Rick explores in colorful detail the significant changes that have taken place over the past century, and the work of those who have been instrumental in this evolution. This presentation is part social history, part calligraphy-geek, and part philosophical inquiry, with quality historical and contemporary images to accompany the discussion.
