Meeting Reminder: Atlanta Penablers This Friday, July 6, 2012: 6-8PM

Hello Ink and Paper Lovers, 

Here's a reminder about our first Atlanta Penablers meeting this Friday, July 6th from 6-8:30pm!

Victoria Lansford will present her new demo: Filigree Flourishing with Finetec. She's also just returned from the International Calligraphy Conference out in Portland and will have all kinds of inky thoughts and inspiration to share about the event and how good it feels to rub shoulders with and learn from calligraphic heavies such as, Yves Leterme, Denis Brown, Annie Cicale, Laurie Doctor, Carl Rohrs, and many more.

 What to Bring:
 • A snack or drink to share
 • Your recent work (optional)
 • Your Bad Self

 To participate in the guided activity after the demo, bring: pointed pen and nib, Finetec gouache set or other inks/gouaches, brush to load your nib, pencil, eraser, and dark cover weight paper.

Below is Victoria's yummy description of her presentation during the first Atlanta Penabler meeting July 6th. If reading this doesn't send calligraphic shivers (the good kind) up and down your spine, come to the meeting to see what all the fuss is about!

Filigree Flourishing with Finetec:  "Victoria Lansford will demonstrate her unique style of pointed pen flourishing with Finetec metallic gouaches and share with you her techniques for building dramatic shapes, letter forms, and large cartouches on dark colored papers. She'll also show how she mixes and combines colors to make compositions pop as well as some handy tricks for making Finetecs and other paletted paints easier to work with and take on the go." 

Artist, educator, author, and publisher, Victoria Lansford creates one-of-a-kind wearable art and art objects that evoke the mystery and splendor of ancient masters, yet are infused with her own provocative vision. Her award winning work has appeared in numerous juried and curated exhibits, books, and magazines, and her instructional publications have sold throughout the world. Her artwork is available in galleries in the USA and at VictoriaLansford.com. 

If you'd like to become a Penabler member, you can do so at the meeting by passing your info onto Me, Victoria or Jacob. We'll also have a signup sheet if you'd like to do it by hand. OR, you can simply email me or Jacob your name/email and we'll get you all signed up.

See you this Friday!
