Middle-earth Impressions - A Middle-earth & JRR Tolkien inspired art exhibition by Henning Janssen
|Henning Janssen is not know by most, but I can promise you he is the new kid on the block. Some of us know him from his wonderfull Tolkien inspired calendars. He is one of the so many Tolkien illustrators out there, but somehow he jumps out in many ways. His art work is unique, fresh and one of the finest I have seen in a long time.|
Also this year, fantasy artist and freelance illustrator Henning Janssen, has made a Tolkien inspired calendar with 12 new plates. A selection from these new works will be shown at the exhibition. The calendar will be first offered to the public at the opening of the exhibition and there will also be limited prints up for sale of his other works.
This exhibition is an opportunity to meet the artist and discuss his style, media, and effects and enjoy the selection of art. Entry is free and complimentary refreshments will be served, it should be a marvellous experience and I hope you can come along.
The Tolkien Shop is located in a wonderful and idillyc town in Holland. It is probably the only store in existence where you can only buy Tolkien related items, some call it the Tolkien Walhala. There is also a small Tolkien museum (admission free), where you can see first editions, autographed books, letters by Tolkien, translations from all across the world and items relating to Tolkien's visit to Holland in 1958.
