Illuminated Letters 2013

Come to Illuminated Letters  - FOTA's second annual calligraphic performance event. It's an intense and pleasurable way to spend an afternoon in quiet, inky bliss. I'll be demonstrating among friends and would love to see you, too! Come on by to see all kinds of amazing techniques, done with care and passion, and in a silent, darkened, and sacred space.

Illuminated Letters is a visual art performance, featuring international calligraphers demonstrating medieval and contemporary techniques, including Hindu, Persian, Chinese and Western styles. The concept of this performance is based on well known calligrapher, Brody Neuenschwander's ground breaking performance art "Brush with Silence" held in Germany and Japan, which had people lined up out the door.  The Atlanta version was so successful last year that the hosting guild, Friends of the Alphabet, has made it an annual event. 

Trinity United Methodist Church
265 Washington St SW, Atlanta, GA 30303
March 6 from 3:30 to 7:30 p.m.
This event is secular, free, and open to the public.
