The Masscribes calligraphic society was founded in 1986 in Massachusetts. It is an organization of calligraphy and art connoisseurs and people involved in it. The members of the society live in New England including Massachusetts, Rhode-Island, New-Hampshire and Connecticut; Masscribes unites the professionals and amateurs and everyone who feels enthusiastic about the art of calligraphy. The society is equally glad to welcome experienced calligraphers and beginners, and for most of its members, calligraphy is not merely art but a life style.
Calligraphic conferences are organized all year round: traditional programme includes demonstrations, slides, communication and ends with common dinner. Masscribes provides beginners with opportunities to meet famous and prominent calligraphers. Masscribes also holds seminars connected with calligraphy: book covering, paper production or colour theory. The Society organizes meetings with well-known calligraphy teachers, shows in Art Centres and antiquarian book shops.
In 2001 Masscribes held the Calligraphic Odyssey 2001 All-American International Conference and is planning to welcome the same-theme conference in 2010.
The Masscribes society would like to thank the International Calligraphic Exhibition for the opportunity to exhibit the works of its members. It is a great honour for all of us.
