August 3, 2012 Meeting Time Changed: Passion for Calligraphy Lecture and Demo by Barbara Calzolari

Hello inky friends,

We have moved the start time of our next Penabler meeting to 7PM to better serve Barbara’s schedule. The night of our Penabler meeting follows Barbara’s first full day of her Nib to Brush workshop, which ends at 6:30PM.

Barbara and her students will take a break at 6:30 so that we’ll be ready for the Penabler slideshow, interview and short demo at 7:00. We’ll set up a table in the workspace for Penablers to lay their snacks and drinks. After getting comfortable, we’ll all sit for Barbara’s slide show and an enchanting interview Q&A session where we’ll get a delightful view of who Barbara is and what makes her tick. We’ll get to see the person behind the amazing work she produces. We hope to make this inaugural interview a well-anticipated and valued Penabler tradition for years to come. Think of it as an Inside the Actor’s Studio episode where the craft is visual art/artists instead of actors and the stage. Among other personalized questions and topics, we will include the Pivot Questionnaire used on the show. I can’t wait!!!

That evening, our room will still be set up for the workshop, so we’ll get creative with the space to allow for Penabler access, without disturbing the workshop tables. Get ready to settle in for some yummy treats and fascinating conversation with Barbara.

See you at 7:00 PM!



Join us for our Second Atlanta Penablers meeting at 7PM on Friday, August 3rd, 2012 and meet Barbara Calzolari in person!
