Society for Calligraphy (SFC) has a mini Conference in Pomona, California at Kellog West Cal Poly which is very much like the big conference held in different parts of the U.S. We bring in about 8 teachers to teach classes over a long weekend. Brenda from Paper & Ink Arts sets up her mini shop and teaches a mini class and the artists have a chance to sell their art as well. Ward Dunham comes to sell pens and wax seals and it's all really lots of fun and gives us a chance to get together and schmooze in a large arena once a year.
We also invite artists to donate a piece of art for the auction to raise money for our Southern California chapter. This year I donated an original mixed media on wood with sculpted letters, entitled "Love of Letters". I hope it bring in a worthy amount.
