SHAKESPEARE:  Twelfth Night

John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford from 10 December 2016 – 21 January 2017

“Twelfth Night” is an exhibition of new work by members of Oxford Scribes. This forms part of Oxford’s tribute to Shakespeare on the 400th anniversary of his death.

COLLECTIONS:  A Celebration of Lettering Arts

In this exhibition we showcase our passion for beautiful hand lettering with a collection of work by current members of Oxford Scribes.  We demonstrate that our skills encompass so much more than handwriting. Each individual piece is an interpretation of the theme Collections (or lists) and celebrates the wide range of media and techniques employed by contemporary artists.

The North Wall Gallery also serves as the foyer for the theatre which is on the same site. Creation Theatre Company will be staging their Christmas production of Treasure Island concurrently with our exhibition. We hope that visitors will consider combining the chance to view our work with a visit to the theatre.


Exhibition and ‘Taster’ session at Bury Knowle Library


A portion of the Collections artwork  moved on to Bury Knowle Library where it was viewed during library opening hours.


In 2014, current and past members of Oxford Scribes celebrated thirty years of making beautiful calligraphic marks.

The anniversary exhibition Write-On was shown at the Oxfordshire County Museum, Woodstock in May and at The Cornerstone in Didcot in June 2014.

Write-On demonstrated the great versatility of the calligraphic arts and included an exciting Maypole installation, as well as historical and new work.  In addition to more conventional framed work made with a brush or pen on paper or vellum, there were books and boxes and unusual two and three dimensional pieces made on a variety of different surfaces with alternative tools.
