Chalk Farm Galley presents “The Tolkien Art of Ted Nasmith” an exhibition of original paintings by Ted Nasmith
20th September to 28th October
Chalk Farm Gallery is pleased to announce it’s 4th exhibition of world-renowned Tolkien artist, Canadian born Ted Nasmith. The exhibition opens on the 20th September with the private view . Ted Nasmith will be here in the UK for the exhibition, at the opening he will be teaming up with musician Casper Reiff from the Tolkien ensemble to present a selection of songs inspired by the author. The show continues until the 28th October 2001 and if his previous exhibitions are anything to go by, we are expecting a sell out show.
Ted Nasmith has worked on many Tolkien publications including The Lord of the Rings trilogy and has had full calendars of his art commissioned by Harper Collins. The 2002 Tolkien calendar The Fellowship of the Ring is out now, and these original paintings will form part of his exhibition. He is currently working on the 2003 The Two Towers and the 2004 The Return of the King. Ted was the sole illustrator of the recently released The Silmarillion, and perhaps his greatest accolade was the approval given to his work by Tolkien himself before his death.
