Museum Invitation

Fundraising

The NC Museum of Art was holding a weekend fundraiser on the Outer Banks for the museum’s expansion. Having just completed a series of calligraphic seaside paintings, I integrated the series into the flat invitation.

The tumbling seashells are positioned at the top of the invitation, as though it were the surface of the water and the floor of the ocean is depicted by the reverse line effect.

Designed and professionally printed in my studio.

The NC Art Museum was expanding the exhibit space and we needed lovely and casual invitations to promote the fundraiser. Having seen Lisa’s calligraphic work, I thought she did a beautiful job epitomizing the undulating waves and shells found on Nags Head Island -the scene set for the weekend fundraiser.
