Capital City Scribes: Treewhispers

Exhibit February 5-March 2

Reception Friday, February 9 from 4-6 pm

A Capital City Scribes exhibition is on display in the library through March 2, 2018. The public is invited to an artist reception Friday, February 9, from 4-6 pm.

For the past year, members of Capital City Scribes have planned and created this unique exhibition inspired by Treewhispers for the Georgetown Public Library—sharing their connections to trees artistically and calligraphically on handmade paper rounds.

Treewhispers is an ongoing international collaboration awakening our heartfelt connection to trees. Initiated in the year 2000 by Pamela Paulsrud and the late Marilyn Sward, the project has sparked opportunities to participate and connect with art, papermaking, performance, storytelling and site-specific installations. The project is ongoing and the invitation for anyone and everyone to participate can be found at treewhispers.com/here

The Georgetown Public Library exhibit includes two areas. On the Bridge, paper rounds are both displayed framed on the walls as well as strung, hanging in the resemblance of trees. The library’s Hallway highlights the Capital City Scribes’ calligraphy and art related to nature.

Capital City Scribes is a non-profit organization dedicated to sharing in the appreciation of and providing education in, the art of calligraphy. They work to foster both community and personal growth through the art of beautiful writing. To learn more about Capital City Scribes visit their website at ccscribes.com.
