One hundred years is an important milestone for the Society of Scribes & Illuminators that has actively championed the art of calligraphy since its inception in 1921.
Words Made Beautiful
A very special exhibition to mark the SSI’s centenary year that will bring together a display of contemporary works, accompanied by historical pieces, to showcase the breadth and diversity of calligraphy and lettering as a modern art form. The title of the exhibition is deliberately broad to encompass calligraphy, lettering and illumination in all its various forms. It is completely open to interpretation. Its aim is to inspire and invite artworks that showcase the individual skills and talent of SSI members.
Words Made Beautiful will launch at the prestigious Mall Galleries, The Mall, London SW1, in February 2021. It will then move to other destinations around the UK to give as many of our members and the public the opportunity to visit.
Submissions are invited from all Fellows and Lay Members to be received by 30 September 2020.
