New, musically inspired work by leading exponents in the art of lettering goes on display at Snape Maltings in September.
‘In Concert’ will be the sister exhibition to ‘Orchestra of Letters’, which continues at the Lettering Arts Centre until October 2 – showcasing 36 lettering artists.
When curator Mark Frith invited artists to offer their responses to a piece of music, more came forward than could be accommodated at the Lettering Arts Centre.
As a result, a second selection, ‘In Concert’, will be presented in the main concert hall from September 8 until December 22.
Roger Wright, Snape Maltings chief executive, said the work was testament to the power of music and a true celebration of the venue.
Mark Frith will be in conversation with Karoline Newman at the Lettering Arts Centre from 6pm on Saturday, September 23, introduced by patron Maggi Hambling.
