Then & Now: A Retrospective Exhibit

By the artist Patti Trick Paulus

June 10, 2017-July 31, 2017

Roesch Library • First-Floor Gallery

Introduced to letterforms in 1980 at University of Dayton under the tutelage of Lou Weber, Patti Paulus has been creating calligraphic art for close to 37 years. She fell in love with the flow of ink on paper and the act of letter creation from the various strokes of the broad edge pen. Patti has been privileged to study with many of the influential calligraphic artists of our time, including Hermann Zapf at Rochester Institute of Technology early in her career, and most recently Donald Jackson, artistic director, calligrapher and illuminator of the St. John’s Bible. While hand lettered artwork continues to be her main focus, she has recently expanded her artistic expression with the addition of rendering landscapes in charcoal. “Then & Now” shows the progression of Ms. Paulus’ artwork from her beginnings at the University of Dayton to the present day.
