May General Meeting: Between Verse and Vision
May 4, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Risa’s program is called Between Verse & Vision, and she’ll be showing us a codex of her own creation. The codex as a commission to hand-letter and illustrate a book of original poems. It was a 3-year journey into the heart of each poem, searching for and then visually articulating the core messages. She’ll discuss her emotional and academic process, research, approach and the materials she used. And, of course, questions are always welcome!
Lastly, the poetry book wasin Bound & Lettered, Volume 12, Number 2, Page 14 – 21. She is happy to sign anyone’s copy of the magazine of Speedball book at the Program. There are lots of examples of Visigothic Versals throughout the book.
As an artist, calligrapher, and author, Risa combines her education and career in graphic design with her lifelong study of Letter Arts. Her art can be seen in the Smithsonian Institution, national and international art publications, and on CD jackets and wine labels.
