Albuquerque's local calligrapher's guild, Escribiente, is celebrating its 40th birthday with an exhibition opening this Friday, April 6 at Matrix Fine Art (3812 Central Ave. SE). The collected works, Enchanted Calligraphy, showcases the diversity of styles and techniques that hand letterers can create, with a particular eye on the many, many calligraphers at work in New Mexico. The letter forms are applied to a variety of media as well—some 2D, some 3D, and even some mixed media works. In addition to an opening reception from 5 to 8pm on Friday (part of an epic First Friday happening this month), there is an artists talk with several Escribiente members happening the next day, Saturday, April 14, from 1 to 3pm.
