Event Details

Join us for An Unexpected Art Show - celebrating the inspiration and influence of J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle-earth!
 
TheOneRing.net and Premiere Events presents 'An Unexpected Art Show' to be held in Los Angeles, California on Friday, February 22, from 7 PM to 1 AM. Celebrating The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings and J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle-earth, 'An Unexpected Art Show' will feature inspired and influenced art pieces — from paintings, drawings, and illustrations to prints — from a variety of artists. Some artwork will be available for immediate purchase.
 
Among the over 30+ artists contributing work are Tim Kirk, who illustrated the 1975 Tolkien Calendar — the first by an illustrator other than Professor Tolkien, and Jerry Venderstelt, an artist producing licensed reproductions for The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings films. Additional artists include Donato Giancola and Steven Hickman. Also on display will be 'The Last March of the Ents' from OneLug, featured on Wired and CNN. This epic LEGO® model features an 8 foot diameter base and the Tower of Orthanc standing 228 LEGO® Bricks (7ft. 2in.) tall depicting a battle scene featuring 23 Ents and 100+ Orcs.
 
A special live auction will be held at 9 PM with selected artwork followed by a DJ set from Nick the Ring. A number of contributing artists will be in attendance and performers, including The Singing Gandalf will entertain throughout the event.
 
All ages are welcome to attend the Art Show. Food and cash bar will be open from 7 PM. A limited number of tickets are available for $15 online and $20 at the door. An Unexpected Art Show will be held at Lot 613, a blank-canvas special events space in the Historic Arts District of Downtown Los Angeles, located at 613 Imperial Street.

Organizer

TheOneRing.net

Founded in 1999 by a group of like-minded Tolkien fans so anxious for the coming Peter Jackson Lord of the Rings films that they were gathering up every scrap of production information to be found, TheOneRing.net continues today in bringing fans the latest news on the beloved figures involved in the making of the wildly popular Lord of the Rings movies as well as the newest information available on upcoming productions, Tolkien-centered events, new publications, and fan gatherings.

The site thrived and so did its unique relationship with Jackson’s production team—a relationship that enabled TORn to bring its readers some exclusive news and night-of-a-lifetime experiences including the famous Oscar parties that hosted the cast and crew after each Oscar-night victory, culminating in an incredible eleven-Oscar sweep for The Return of the King. Looking to the future with the support of its phenomenal community of fans, TheOneRing.net continues to be the most comprehensive Tolkien fan site on the web.
