MEETINGS

October Program Meeting

Saturday, October 27, 2018
7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Barry Morentz

Barry will share his use of music in creating his calligraphic interpretation of Shakespearean text, and how he arrived at the particular rendering of each line. As an audience member you'll be invited to share your reflections as you view Barry's work while hearing the music that influenced him.

Barry creates works that are provocative so viewers are drawn to read the text.

We will be meeting this month in the Chapel at:

Concord-St. Andrew's Church

5910 Goldsboro Rd.
Bethesda, MD 20817

See below for directions.

rogram meetings are generally held at Concord-St. Andrews Church, 5910 Goldsboro Road
at the intersection of River and Goldsboro Roads in Bethesda, Maryland.

Meetings offer the fellowship of calligraphic colleagues. Each meeting features a program, such as a lecture, field trip or demonstrations on a variety of topics. Meetings are held regularly from September to May (except January) and are free and open to everyone. Information about meetings and other Guild activities is published in the Bulletin.

Directions: From the Beltway (Rt. 495) take the River Road exit (39) south towards Washington. Turn left onto Goldsboro Rd. The entrance to the church parking lot is about 40 yards on the right. The Chapel (door #6) is at the rear on the left side (as you're facing the front of the church). Social Hall entrance is the first door on the left side of the church (door #7).
