General Meeting – May 2017

Program by Risa Gettler and Paul Freeman Awards

Program: Between Verse and Vision, Presented by Risa Gettler

Risa Gettler is an accomplished calligraphic artist from California. For the program, she discussed her work on a years long commission, presenting many images and discussing how and why she created the art. Risa also discussed how she figures her charges for a comission such as this. Her images were very inspiring to all of us.

Major Workshop – May 2017 – Visigothic Versals

Risa taught us all about Visigothic Versals, using first pencil drafts of our quote, then inked drafts, and finally an inked draft with a capital letter and color as well. Everyone was successful in this class, and several works from class became Exhibit pieces at our recent show at the Library.
