Hey Everyone, we are super exited to announce this event! Sam Flax will be hosting a one-day calligraphy workshop with former White House Calligrapher, Rick Paulus! We’d also like to thank Emily Canter and The Atlanta Friends of the Alphabet Calligraphy Guild for setting this up! For a supply list and more information, visit samflaxsouth.com. Here are some the details:
This presentation is part social history, part calligraphy-geek techno process-specific, and part philosophical inquiry, with quality historical and current images to accompany the discussion.
In this colorful forty-five minute presentation, Paulus leads a unique journey from Cape Cod, to serving as the Chief Calligrapher of the White House, and back again to Cape Cod. Using calligraphy as the backdrop, He shares personal vignettes from working at the highest levels of government as a calligrapher, calligraphy’s role in diplomacy and entertaining, how a State Dinner is planned and executed and many insights into the operations of the White House Social Office. After our tour of the White House, I take you withme back to Cape Cod, where I am confronted with the blank canvas, my greatest challenge being to create beautiful art of my own inspiration; to create art of a completely different nature than he had been asked to produce in Washington, DC. The presentation continues with slides of Paulus’ current work, and accompanying readings of the quotes and poems of the sea that have inspired him for so many years and have played a significant role in his ultimate return to the sea.
