Tolkien Event in LA
- For your website, you may wish to post information regarding the Into the
West, a fan party, in Los Angeles at which Tim Kirk will be exhibiting 11
his LORD OF THE RINGS paintings from his 1975 calendar, and Colleen Doran
will be exhibiting 7 of her pieces from THE ESSENTIAL JRR TOLKIEN
SOURCEBOOK, which I wrote. The party will be on Saturday and Sunday of
Both Tim and Colleen will be on hand for Saturday to meet and greet the
public, sign autographs, inscribe copies of KIRK'S WORKS and THE ESSENTIAL
JRR TOLKIEN SOURCEBOOK, and auction off two original pen-and-ink pieces of
art from THE LORD OF THE RINGS to benefit charity.
You can go to www.intothewest.net and click on ART SHOW for all the
particulars. Since I am the one who organized this exhibit, I'd be happy
provide any additional information, as well.
I would think that fans of the Mythopoeic Society -- of which Tim Kirk was
an active member when he was involved in illustrating fanzines and books
his early years -- would want to know that he will be at a Tolkien-themed
event in Los Angeles at the end of the month. The Saturday get-together is
inexpensive and tickets, I'm told, are still available.
Best, George Beahm
