All three Abrahamic faiths emphasize the importance of the written word. Following the work of its original authors, generations of scribes faithfully transcribed these words on parchment and paper and honored the text by illuminating it. For today’s calligraphers there exists a tension between traditional commitments to create work that is legible and a more contemporary view that emphasizes expressing the spirit of the text. Scribes of Hope II embraces this tension. This exhibit features 31 works across a wide range of approaches including: traditional lettering and illumination; artist books and letterpress work showcasing fresh directions in calligraphic design; and letters created by hand and then digitally scanned for further alteration.
Glencoe Union Church is pleased to present this special art exhibit Scribes of Hope II , curated and supported by CIVA (Christians in the Visual Arts). This exhibit is the 4th art exhibit that GUC has presented in the Cornell Rm. since its renovation in 2014.
