Sunday July 29th Keynote address by NANCY CULMONE
"Through the unknown, remembered gate..." A Fascination
with Creative Process Creating is an inherent part of our
humanness. Both the process and its forms are unique to
each individual. A creative odyssey includes mentoring and
moving beyond mentors in your own work. This presentation
offers insights into the varied nature of this journey through the
voices and works of artists and "outsider artists" from several
disciplines: printmaking, book arts, calligraphy, metalsmithing
and mixed media. As Plotinus, the Greek philosopher, puts it:
"Remember that there are parts of what it most concerns you to
know which I cannot describe to you; you must come with me
and see for yourselves."

Image Meets Word: A Collaboration of Photography and Lettering
    At past conferences selected calligraphers have been invited
to interpret poems calligraphically. These artworks have then been
displayed in an exhibit, and an evening panel discussion by the
artists of the creative process has ensued. This year we are sailing
a similar but different course.
     Award winning, Boston-based photographer Shellburne Thurber
will talk about her work and participate in a panel discussion with
ive calligraphers chosen to interpret her evocative photography. An
exhibit of the photograph and the five calligraphic interpretations will
be on exhibit during the conference.

Thursday, August 2

in this presentation. This lecture and social are sponsored by
The Association for the Calligraphic Arts. Copies of "Springlines"
will be available for sale at John Neal, Bookseller during the week.
