The International Exhibition of Calligraphy

The International Exhibition of Calligraphy will take place at I.E. Repin State Academic Institute for Painting, Sculpture and Architecture in St. Petersburg from September 16th to September 21st. The exhibition will showcase works by leading calligraphers from Russia, Belarus, and Ukraine. Historic manuscripts' samples of different ages, writing and calligraphy utensils will be also presented and a specialized library will be organized. Applied calligraphy will be represented by embroidery and calligraphic engraving on household items.

The organizers are planning to deliver a series of master classes by the most prominent and distinct calligraphers and a set of lectures with a hands-on learning activity for both adults and kids. The first handwritten copy of the Constitution of the Russian Federation will be exclusively presented to the audience. The unique project, prepared by the National Union of Calligraphers in collaboration with the Rare Books from St.-Petersburg Publishing House, should become worthy of the Russia’s renascence symbol and should be stored for ages.
