art & the letter
The Art & the Letter Exhibition is shown each year as part of the Calligraphy & Lettering Arts Society’s AGM Day. Every member is encouraged to enter a piece of work, no matter what their standard. The submission of a piece is free and is open to all calligraphers and lettering artists. Topics are set the previous summer for a closing date usually in early spring. Each entry receives a comment from a team of renowned calligraphers. Calligraphers whose work is thought to be really special receive a special mention and are presented with a certificate.
The next Art & the Letter Exhibition will take place at the 2021 AGM.
