Escribiente, Albuquerque’s Calligraphy Society, is delighted to display a special collection of calligraphic art showcasing a diversity of styles and techniques, from delicate pointed pen lettering to abstract mixed media and 3D cut letters.

Members participating in The Art of Healing include: Vicki Bolen, Esther Feske, Janice Gabel, Julie Gray, Patty Hammarstedt, Beth House, Bill Kemp, Caryl McHarney, Elizabeth McKee, Trish Meyer, Jane Robertson, and Eliza Schmid.

Escribiente members also enjoy using our calligraphic skills to give back to the community, and our members will create custom bookmarks and ornaments during the reception as a fundraiser for NMCCF.

Albuquerque’s Calligraphic Society was founded in April, 1978. We are a lively, congenial group open to anyone interested in the fine art of beautiful lettering. We hold regular meetings at Manzano Mesa Multigenerational Center featuring an informative program for all levels of calligraphy, including speakers, hands-on projects, social time to meet other calligraphers, and generally a good learning atmosphere. Everyone with an interest in creating beautiful letters is welcome!

In addition to local classes for beginners, we also offer two workshops each year taught by national and international instructors.
