A Celebration of NCG’s 35th Anniversary and Beyond
Our program for November will offer a great recap for new members and a walk through the past for veterans. To celebrate our 35th anniversary, Carol Ann Baily gathered photos and put together a slide show that spans the history of the guild and Ann Cobb made a comprehensive booklet of our officers, workshops, meeting places, logos, etc. It was decided by the group that these would be nice to share at our meeting for those who could not attend the celebration in September. In addition, our guild had the distinct honor of assisting with the hosting of international calligrapher Donald Jackson’s visit to Carson Newman College in October, where pages of the commissioned St. John’s Bible were on display. Members who were in attendance will share their weekend experience with Donald Jackson, who headed the project and worked with a select team of lettering artists to render the Bible in a beautifully modern calligraphic hand, complete with beautiful illustrations.
