A new exhibit features 26 “Bible Versals” by local calligraphers – the Encore Group. This is a group of calligraphers and bookbinders led by Joyce Teta, a former Artist of the Year in Winston-Salem. Joyce provided the concept, inspiration and creativity for the exhibit.
Versals are ornamental letters traditionally found in Medieval books and are often larger than the surrounding text and usually begin a new paragraph or section of text. In the Bible Versals exhibit, each participant took their own approach to each letter in the alphabet, the execution of these letters and the meaning.
I encourage you to experience this wonderful exhibit located on the east side of Room 401, The Ammons Gallery.
