The Summit

Calligraphy Inspiration

orchard I am home at long last after quite a stretch away in Colorado -- first for a family reunion and then, last week, for the annual international calligraphy conference, this year called "The Summit" and held in Colorado Springs.  It was my first time attending this conference, and it was quite a thing to experience.  There were nearly 300 participants taking classes from almost two dozen instructors, such as Yukimi Annand, Denis Brown, John Stevens, Brody Neuenschwander, Yves Leterme, Laurie Doctor, Carl Rohrs, and Ewan Clayton, among many others.  The conference kicked off with a keynote by Larry Brady and a retrospective exhibition of Larry and Marsha Brady's work. life Larry Brady started his career in 1958, first as a designer for General Telephone Company.  He then ran his own design firm and later did a combination of teaching and free-lance work for the duration of his career.  The top three images are Larry's work. fightgrasshopper Marsha studied calligraphy at UCLA, where she majored in Education, and she then spent her career teaching calligraphy at a number of schools and universities up until her retirement in 2004.  The detail of the piece below and (I think) above are both by Marsha Brady.  I should have written down attribution while I was looking at the exhibition.  I suppose my eyes were too distracted by these gorgeous pieces on the wall! abc reflections This offers a glimpse of the gallery space in the reflection.  It was such a lovely exhibition and kick-off to a week that was stimulating at every turn.  Much more to report in the days ahead...

    Well, I would love to take a class from you on design and photography and styling and all kinds of things! I hope it was clear that the images in this post aren’t mine, though — I wish I could take credit for them, but alas!
