Anne-Davnes Elser: Finding Voice

We are excited to have one of our own, Anne-Davnes Elser, presenting.  She will share some of her personal journey and her unique method of writing beautiful words and embellishments.

Some of you may have had the opportunity to take Anne's class at IAMPETH last summer. 


We will begin at 7:00 pm with a short business meeting. Note that the presentation will possibly begin before 7:30 pm. Anne will guide participants in an activity following her presentation. Afterwards we would like to invite members to linger for some casual social time, and we plan to wind up the evening around 9:00 pm.

Our membership contains professional calligraphers, talented practitioners, and rank beginners. Some have found calligraphy a creative outlet; others have discovered an enthralling hobby.  Some have found a place to belong; others, a place for escape.  Many of us are artists in other disciplines - printers, bookbinders, graphic artists, designers, writers, and students - and some are simply observers who like what they see.
