16th April – 2nd May 2018 @ North Wall Gallery, Oxford
In this collaborative project, our members interpret extracts from original poems written by pupils from St Edward’s School for the school’s Gittings poetry competition. Also included in this exhibition will be poetry by the school’s Head of English and his translations from the German of Müller’s verses set by Schubert in his much-loved song cycle Die Schöne Müllerin. The exhibition will also include a selection of other new work by members.
True to the society’s ethos, “All About Lettering”, the calligraphic work on display will be in a variety of mediums. Members use their talents in many ways, for example book-making, glass engraving, letter and paper-cutting, and many of these will be represented in exhibition pieces.
This exciting collaboration gives the pupils a unique opportunity to share their achievements with the general public. In addition, members showcase their talents, demonstrating that the skill of beautiful writing by hand is flourishing in the internet age.
The North Wall Gallery is open from Monday – Friday 10am – 4pm, and from 12pm – 4pm on Saturdays. Sundays & Bank Holidays: normally closed, except for theatre events. Admission is free. There is no parking at the North Wall itself, but there are public car parks in Summertown, about 5 minutes walk away. Link to North Wall website
Our Private View will be held on Saturday 21 April from 2.30-4.30pm and members are most welcome to attend and bring guests.
