23 Sandy Gallery invites you to celebrate the beautiful word by entering The Poetic Pen, a juried exhibition of calligraphic artwork that uses poetry as a primary textual focus. Calligraphers throughout history have employed poetry to illustrate the art and fine craft of lettering, letterforms and calligraphic design. This show is open to pen or brush works in the form of wall-hung pieces, broadsides, books, sculptural objects and more. Will be held in conjunction with the Calligraphy Northwest Calligraphy Conference, which will bring over 500 fans of calligraphy to Portland in June 2012.
