The Lyrical Word Art Exhibition

“Lyric” derives via Latin lyricus from the Greek λυρικός (lyrikós).  The differences between poem and song may become less meaningful where verse is set to music, to the point that any distinction becomes untenable. This is perhaps recognised in the way popular songs have lyrics.  The Lyrical Word is an exhibition that examines the truth of calligraphy through the works of artists who spell out their ideas and expressions through brush strokes and ink.

The Westcoast Calligraphy Society is an enthusiastic group of artists with a common bond–a love of all things calligraphic. Members share knowledge of design, colour, illustration, bookbinding, paper making and our other talents with everyone interested in the art of letters with more experienced members teaching beginning and more advanced calligraphy throughout the Lower Mainland.
