September 5, 2013

A multiple artist calligraphy exhibit that explores contemporary lettering and the unique use of tools and materials is on view at Lasell's Wedeman Gallery through September. The exhibit is presented by Masscribes, a New England Calligraphy Organization.

The exhibit, "Beyond the Line," runs from September 2 - 29, 2013 with gallery hours from Tues- Fri 1-4pm. The gallery is located at the Yamawaki Art & Cultural Center at 19 Myrtle Ave. in Newton on the Lasell College campus.

For the exhibit, the artists, whose specialties are steeped in tradition, focus on creative ways in which to use traditional calligraphy. According to Masscribes, which helped to organize the exhibit, the works reveal creative leaps into the unknown and also a detailed, well planned approach.
