The Letter as Art

The Letter as Art

Gloucestershire Printmaking Cooperative

Exhibited from Saturday 6 August - Monday 29 August, 2016

It has always been said that there is an art to writing letters, but the letters of the alphabet – no matter which language – are art forms in themselves.

This varied exhibition explores permutations of the letter as art – the individual letters of alphabets, the various ways that they can be written, whether printed as poetry or as letters with their attendant calligraphy, using a variety of printing techniques. These include hand-printing, letterpress, and the artist interpretation of a letter or letters together with the individual nature of various alphabets.

If a picture paints a thousand words, in this exhibition we will let the thousand words paint the picture.
