The Lively Letter

The Lively Letter

from September 14, 2017 @ 9:00 AM until October 10, 2017 @ 5:00 PM
Courthouse Gallery - Yarram

The Lively Letter is a multimedia exhibition by Calligrapher Artist, Anita George.  Anita has had a passion for, and love of art for as long as she can remember.  Growing up in country Victoria from Warrnambool to Wangaratta to Warragul, she acquired an appreciation for the colours and textures of the beautiful Australian landscape from an early age.

With a working background as a draftswoman and later landscape design, she was drawn to the beautiful letterforms and designs of the past.  Joining the Calligraphy Society of Victoria over 20 years ago she learnt the disciplines of this art.  Then followed teaching, commissions and workshops with Australian and overseas tutors.  A trip overseas followed by a move to Gippsland brought many changes to her style.

This has all resulted in a very free form and explosion of letter forms moving to gestural, layering and expressing mark making where legibility has on occasion been sacrificed.
