Prince of Peace Lutheran Church

Scribes of Hope

Area artists present music from diverse faiths and genres. Details on the lineup will be posted as they become available. The concert will be presented at Prince of Peace Church in conjunction with the Scribes of Hope traveling exhibit from CIVA, Christians in the Visual Arts. The exhibit will be at Prince of Peace from Oct. 6 thru Nov. 4 during the time of the Reformation 500 culmination year.

About Scribes of Hope: All three Abrahamic faiths emphasize the importance of the written word. Following the work of its original authors, generations of scribes faithfully transcribed these words on parchment and paper and honored the text by illuminating it. For today’s calligraphers there exists a tension between traditional commitments to create work that is legible and a more contemporary view that emphasizes expressing the spirit of the text. Scribes of Hope II embraces this tension. This exhibit features 31 works across a wide range of approaches including: traditional lettering and illumination; artist books and letterpress work showcasing fresh directions in calligraphic design; and letters created by hand and then digitally scanned for further alteration.

CIVA is grateful to internationally known calligrapher Timothy Botts for curating this exhibit and also grateful to Mr. and Mrs. Howard and Corrinne Russell for their generous gift in support of this exhibit.

This event is FREE.
