Gemma Black

"The Working Life of a Calligrapher in Contemporary Australia"

Gemma Black, lettering artist from Tasmania, Australia, offers us a glimpse of her life as an artist, the opportunities that have arisen for her, in particular the work created for the Commonwealth Government of Australia. These works include four major Apology documents including the Apology to Australia’s Indigenous Peoples and a number of other founding documents housed in the Australian Archives. She will also talk about what type of commissions a modern calligrapher is required to do to remain relevant in a highly technical age.

Note: WCG Board meetings are open to our general membership. If you are interested in observing the current process, issues, and topics that our elected and volunteer Board members undergo and discuss, you are more than welcome to join us.

WCG Board meetings: At Guild Board meetings, the annually elected Board of Directors develops and carries out Guild policies as well as leads the committees of volunteers that prepare Guild activities. Many board members are relatively new to calligraphy, but devoted in their interest. Contact President Tamara Stoneburner to find out how you can help the Guild grow!
