The Calligraphy Initiative in Honor of Lloyd J. Reynolds, a program of the Douglas F. Cooley Memorial Art Gallery, is introducing a new generation of Reed students and community members to the study and practice of calligraphy and paleography.
As generations of Reynolds' and Palladino's students have demonstrated, the practice of calligraphy ignites unique, embodied forms of knowing, uniting intellectual activity, bodily knowledge, and the senses, providing an integrated and disciplined means for understanding the self in relation to the origins of culture.
In addition, the following individuals offered invaluable support and wisdom to help guide the study and practice of calligraphy back to Reed College: Inga Dubay, Barbara Getty, John Sheehy '82, Sumner Stone '67, Gary Snyder '51, Georgianna Greenwood '60, Gay Walker '69, Lee Littlewood '68, Robert Palladino, Phyllis Reynolds, Judith Reynolds, Allison Tepper '11, Vice President for College Relations Hugh Porter, Emeritus Dean of Faculty Ellen Stauder, Dean of Faculty Pat McDougal, and Emeritus President Colin Diver.

The mission of the Douglas F. Cooley Memorial Art Gallery is to enhance the academic offerings of Reed College with a diverse range of scholarly exhibitions, lectures, and colloquia in its role as a teaching gallery.
The gallery was established by a generous 1988 gift from Sue and Edward Cooley and John and Betty Gray "in support of the teaching of art history at Reed College, as part of an interdisciplinary educational experience that strengthens the art history component of Reed's distinctive humanities program." Exhibitions are coordinated in collaboration with Reed faculty members and courses, with attention to the needs and interests of the larger Portland and Northwest arts communities. A schedule of three to four exhibitions during the academic year brings to Reed and the Portland community work that would not otherwise be seen in the region
