Update #1 May 16, 2017

Dear Calligraphers,

“The Colors of Fun!” – this year’s theme for the Oregon State Fair - is certainly appropriate for calligraphers! The state fair website is now live for you to register online. Pieces (up to two entries) created in the last two years are eligible for entry. Although the deadline to register is August 1, surprise yourself and do it before you leave for vacation. A change in the division categories should make your entry process even easier. Categories are now Beginner/Novice Adult Division, Intermediate/Advanced Adult Division, and Student Division. Go to the State Fair website www.oregonstatefair.org click on Competitions, Creative Living, Visual Arts, and read the handbook prior to registering.

Ambassadors from all of your guilds/areas are ready to take questions and coordinate drop-off and pick-up of artwork. You can find them by clicking the link at the beginning of this page. Demonstrators (writing names) and hosts play a very important role in making our exhibit one of the most popular at the Fair. Sign-ups are being taken by Barbara Taylor again this year and you can reach her by phone.
