Brief class also will be offered
St. Andrew’s Church in Beacon will host a reception for an exhibit of calligraphy by Brother Roy Parker from 3 to 6 p.m. on Saturday, July 8. Parker will offer a demonstration of the craft at 4 p.m. The church is located at 15 South Ave.
Parker, who lives in Holy Cross Monastery in West Park, became interested in calligraphy when he encountered the 1952 book Sweet Roman Hand, which was Shakespeare’s term for Italic handwriting in Twelfth Night. In 1980 he studied with Beva Farmer in Monterey, California.
