Fan-curated exhibition in North of England to coincide with The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies
Fans in Ripon North Yorkshire have a special treat coming up. As well as seeing the final Hobbit film, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, they can see some wonderful artwork inspired by the writing of JRR Tolkien. Artist John Cockshaw is presenting an Exhibition of Art Inspired by the Works of JRR Tolkien at the Art Cinema, Curzon Ripon.
With excitement for the final Middle-earth film reaching fever-pitch along with a bittersweet feeling of having to say farewell John decided, as a fan and artist, he had to act decisively. Opening on the 12th December with a preview is an exhibition of Tolkien artists he will be curating at the Curzon cinema venue in Ripon, North Yorkshire. Along with a selection of his own Middle-earth art, the show will feature the work of renowned Canadian Artist Ted Nasmith and the amazing graphite work of Polish Artist Katarzyna Chmiel-Gugulska. It will coincide with the screening of The Hobbit at this regional venue but also use the opportunity as a platform to showcase a thought-provoking diversity of interpreting JRR Tolkien’s writing. The exhibition also arose out of his longing to create a high-profile Tolkien-related event in his home area…because you can never really celebrate Tolkien enough right? The exhibition, after the preview evening, will run from Saturday 13th December until Saturday 31st January.

This is pretty cool. Have a look at this speculative re-arrangement from Sammpo Alternative Channel of all the trailer and teaser and TV spots footage for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies rearranged into what might — or might not — be chronological viewing order.
Accuracy may be arguable, but this could be quite close to a short summary of the film. If you’re not avoiding spoilers have a look, and leave your thoughts below in the comments!

In our latest Library piece, TORn reader and Tolkien Italian Network member Gabriele Marconi explores how a 2 minute video doesn’t pay full tribute to a fans love of Tolkien.
Gabriele told TORn, “The point is that a 2-minute time video could not contain nor the smallest part of the reasons why Tolkien is so strongly related to Italy and the Alps, the mountains we know so well (even if Tolkien went through them only from the Swiss side).
That is also why Italy is Middle-Earth, or at least a part of it, “Gondor“, as the very one John Ronald used to say. So I choosed to speak about the famous postcards of Der Berggeist and used them as a spark to tell more about the relations between Tolkien, Switzerland and Italy. Not only the postcards: every opened issue has been deepened in the shape of Q&A”
The article is translated from Italian to English by Greta Bertani.

A couple months ago we announced the big LOTR trilogy screening announcement for the Lincoln Center in NY where a full symphony and choir accompanies each film in a live, soundtrack performance. Having seen the first two, this is a ‘not to be missed’ event, unless you were denied tickets when the ROTK sold out.
Well, never fear, the Symphony Silicon Valley has picked up the quest and will be running two cycles of the trilogy in San Jose in mid-April. Run, do not walk and get yourself your tickets for this amazing performance of the much loved set of films and musical scores.
