I am enough of the artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.”….Al

Jeff Landreth

“I work in many different mediums…pastels, watercolor, oils, acrylics…and digital….it’s all good.  Usually it starts with an idea, to a drawing…then to whatever medium seems to be the best at the time. It’s not so much the medium as it is the process….start with the end in mind.”

Born in the Great Northwest…Jeff dicided to travel when he was younger and made a trip to Europe and then to the Hawaiian Islands. He fell in Love with the Islands and its people and decided to make Maui his home for many years. Much of his art is based around nature themes as you can see from his work. Today Jeff spends most of his time between the Islands and the West Coast.

Capital Calligraphers’ Show @ Gallery 444
Apr 4 @ 5:00 pm – Apr 28 @ 5:00 pm

The gallery will host the Capital Calligraphers’ Group during the month of April.

If you love beautiful letters & sharing your knowledge with others

Capital Calligraphers is the place for you. We’re a non professional group who have in common a deep appreciation for beautifully crafted letters and a sincere desire to share with each other the skills needed to create them. Join us, please.

Capital Calligraphers is the place for you

Capital Calligraphers was formed on April 21, 1977, for the purpose of promoting calligraphy in the greater Salem area and to encourage calligraphers to come out of hiding and gain self-confidence in their craft. To that end we sponsor meetings, classes and workshops. We also demonstrate and organize shows to promote calligraphy to the public.

We learn from each other

Western calligraphy was once a lost art. Centuries ago it was a practical and lucrative skill however it was made obsolete by advancing technology and industrial printing. The knowledge and skills needed to produce it died out little by little with each succeeding generation until finally it had almost vanished completely from the earth. Through great effort and study it was ressurected as an art form by those who appreciated the beauty of it. If we do not want history to repeat itself we must put forth effort to share what we know with those few who are willing to learn.
