20820Tolkien Society Events
- Sep 1, 2009Hi,
Great, it sounds like people still want to hear about the Tolkien Society events. Speaking of which, details of not only UK TS events but also things taking place around the world can be found on the TS website - www.tolkiensociety.org/events.
And, whilst I'm here, details of another event below...
The Truth about Faeries: from A Midsummer Night's Dream to Lord of the Rings
An exhibition of artworks by old and new fairy and fantasy artists,
including Brian Froud, Wendy Froud, Alan Alan Lee, and Patrick Woodroffe.
On now and open until 13th September 2009
Southampton City Art Gallery, Civic Centre, Southampton, Hampshire, SO14
Brian Froud perhaps best known for his work on The Dark Crystal and
Labyrinth is also justly famous for his series of illustrated fairy books.
Alan Lee has illustrated various editions of works by JRRT and was awarded
an Oscar for his work on Lord of the Rings.
The exhibition explores different themes, looking at how artists have
responded to Shakespeare's faeries and J.M. Barrie's Peter Pan, and
consists of artworks borrowed from public and private collections to
create an exciting exhibition that will appeal to a wide audience.
