Calligraphy workshop and demonstration by Laura DiPiazza. Projections of calligraphy. Hands on demonstrations. Its beautiful. Come and see! Free! Please join the Main Street Museum for a hands-on calligraphic extravaganza with Brooklynite/UV resident and calligrapher Laura Di Piazza.
Laura will show a brief slide show of current lettering trends with Q&A. Followed by demonstrations, via wide screen projection, of copperplate calligraphy, Spencerian script, broad edge pen hand and raw modern day lettering with a ruling pen. And last but certainly not least, guests are all invited to play/experiment/line draw/letter with the many calligraphy tools Laura will have available for use. Guests are invited to take home their creations or drop them in the what-will-it-be basket for a collaborative collage!
First Fridays is funner than ever because our downstairs nieghbor at the SIT gallery is having an opening reception of amazing proportions.
Expect food, art, dogs, wine, and even a bring your own bbq, to complement all the other things that are going on in town this First Friday. Its fun, It must be seen to be believed! And it kicks off our Russian-Cuban Summer. Stay Tuned!
And, Our board meeting has been postponed until this coming Tuesday, due to my URI (Upper Respiratory Infection) which means that the Cosmic Powers That Be have seen fit to take away my voice for a bit. Perhaps its a message. (I probably won’t listen.) So, come to our board meeting this Tuesday the 9th of June. I’ll be better then. Promise.
