Scarborough resident holds art exhibition

In the Scarborough library there is an exhibition from a local resident Eric Russell.

The exhibition features every letter in the alphabet written in a calligraphy style and each is based on a specific person in history.

The former journalist keeps developing ideas and as well as doing calligraphy-themed art, he is also repairing old farm tools which are being sold all over the world.

His wife, Dorothy Russell, said: “Each letter has been designed in the way that they were written in old documents.

“It is a mixture of calligraphy and art and that is what he has done.”

Calligraphy is a visual art related to writing.

It is the design and execution of lettering with a broad tip instrument or brush (as opposed to built up lettering, in which the letters are drawn).

The exhibition is on until the book reading so there is still a few weeks left to go and see his work.
