Our 2024 Exhibition: WHAT’S IN A WORD?

Your Executive is happy to announce the theme for our 2024 exhibition – What’s in a Word?
Let’s send positive thoughts out into the world.

We ask that you letter ONE WORD in whatever hand you prefer, embellish or flourish as you wish, but that you use walnut ink somewhere in your piece as the coordinating colour. Another requirement is to try to find the good in the world by choosing a word that is positive, gives you hope or makes you happy. For those that wish to letter a phrase, you may add extra lettering, as long as ONE WORD is dominant. As for the size, you are asked to create your piece to fit an 8 x 10 black frame with or without a 5 x 7 mat – whatever sparks your creativity. (The example above is on 8 x 10 watercolour paper.)



  • One word – positive in nature
  • May include extra lettering as long as one word remains dominant
  • Must include walnut ink
  • Size: 8 x 10 with or without a 5×7 mat opening (black frame, if we find a venue)
  • Have fun spreading good thoughts!
