A new exhibit is on display at the Culture Center at the state Capitol Complex.
The exhibit is called "Expressions in World: Calligraphers and Poets" and includes 31 pieces featuring poems written by members of the Kanawha Valley Poets and the Charleston and Huntington Calligraphers' Guilds.
You can get a close up look at different tools in the art of calligraphy, including quills, pens and inks.
"It gives people a chance to see where somebody can take something that's already creative and build on it," said Caryn Gresham, the deputy commissioner of the West Virginia Division of Culture and History.
Admission to the exhibit is free and will be on display through Veterans Day.
