Planning has begun for this year’s Oregon State Fair being held August 26–September 5. The “Here Comes the Fun” theme promises another great year.

It’s not too early to decide which pieces of art you want to display. Registration online has begun. Up to two pieces created in the last two years are eligible for entry, in either the Juried or the Non-Juried division. Ambassadors from almost all of your guilds/areas are ready to take questions and coordinate drop-off and pick-up of artwork. You can find them on the Capital Calligraphers website: www.capitalcalligraphers.org Demonstrators (writing names) and hosts play a very important role in making our exhibit one of the most popular at the Fair.

While the Board reflects a diversity of calligraphic experience, everyone is devoted to the art. Whether you are a beginner or more experienced, we invite you to come to the next Board meeting and help the Society grow.

Welcome!

The Portland Society for Calligraphy was founded by Lloyd Reynolds and a group of his students after a long alliance with the Society for Italic Handwriting in England. We were first known as the Western American Branch of the Society for Italic Handwriting, one of the oldest calligraphy guilds in the United States.

Formed in 1969 and incorporated as a non-profit in 1973, we support Lloyd Reynolds’ vision: “Through study, understanding, and critical practice, let us promote this healthy arts and crafts movement.” PSC holds the following as its Core Values: Education, Inclusivity, Creativity, Integrity of Craft, Humility, Encouragement, Curiosity & Joy.

We offer an extensive workshop program aimed at all levels of skill. Our teachers include internationally renowned calligraphers as well as local talent. We sponsor an annual weekend retreat during the month of February at the Menucha Retreat Center in the beautiful Columbia Gorge. The Guild also exhibits members’ artwork in an annual non-juried show.
