For information about IAMPETH and the convention, visit their website at www.iampeth.com. If you are not a member and are interested in attending the convention, joining before the end of December will enhance your chance of getting a spot in the conference. Registration spots typically “sell out” quickly. If you can’t attend the convention, there will be more information coming about an Open to the Public night so you can shop with artist members, with John Neal Bookseller and visit the archives.

 

MenuchaRetreatThumb copy

For over 40 years, PSC has hosted its annual calligraphy retreat at the Menucha Retreat and Conference Center. Menucha is located on a beautiful hundred-acre sanctuary in the Columbia River Gorge with breathtaking landscapes, steeped in a rich history dating back to Lewis and Clark.

In modern times, calligraphers, book artists, mark makers and designers of all experience levels have come to be inspired by the beautiful environs and enjoy an experience free of the pressures of day-to-day living. Our PSC retreats offer each calligrapher something very special—a space to practice, start new projects or finish old ones; a chance to enjoy three delectable homemade meals each day; and an opportunity to rest, relax, be revived, and enjoy the company and synergy of fellow artisans.

The PSC Board of Directors will meet on February 23rd from 5:30 to 7:30 pm in the Childrens’ Chapel at Trinity Episcopal Cathedral, 147 NW 19th Avenue in Portland. The agenda for the meeting will include a discussion of how PSC might increase its education and outreach to middle schools, high schools, college age students and young adults. All PSC members are invited to attend and participate in this discussion.

Parking at Trinity is available in the lot directly across 19th Avenue from the building or in the lot on the south side of the building.

The Portland Society for Calligraphy Board meetings are open to all members. At the meetings, the Board of Directors develops and carries out the Society’s policies and by-laws with the help of committees who report activities to the Board. 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.
