WOMEN INK - An exhibit of beautiful, creative calligraphy art works by 14 local calligraphers
Curator Sasja Lucas, artist
Coordinator Chris Roberts, Hyde Park artist and new member of the WOMEN INK
WOMEN INK is a community of lettering artists in the Greater Boston area who have been studying calligraphy together for many years—some for more than 25. The study group developed from years of taking formal classes together at The deCordova Museum School, and, after the studio art programs were discontinued, stayed together, working in other spaces. The Ryan Estate in Lincoln is their current home, and each week they meet to experiment with paper, paint, ink, and letters, and to find inspiration and support from one another. This exhibit is a tribute to the art of calligraphy that elevates the visual aspect of writing to a high art form. Participating artists: Mary Steele, Concord; Sara Milder, Needham; Gail Robichaud, Winchester; Heather Wiley, Brookline; Cynthia Perkins, Stow; Mary Grassi, Winchester; Jean Mollineaux, Byfield; Lee Thurston, Concord; Deborah Miller, Carlisle; Nancy Galligan, Wellesley; Judy Hadley, Concord; Chris Roberts, Hyde Park.
