Winter Is Coming... to Seattle

Fans of Ice & Fire... and of great fantasy art in general... have a treat coming next winter.

Seattle's famous LTD Art Gallery, a premiere fine art gallery that specializes in the works inspired for the many icons of contemporary pop culture, will be hosting WINTER IS COMING, a showcase of original artwork inspired by A SONG OF ICE & FIRE.  James Monosmith, owner and director of the gallery, declares that the show will be "an unparalleled collection" by "today's top fantasy and pop artists."

The show will be open on March 1, 2014, and run through March 23rd, at the Ltd Art Gallery, 307 E. Pike Street, in Seattle.  There will be an opening reception at the gallery on Saturday, March, 1, and a final special engagement at Emerald City Comicon, March 28 - 30th.

It's no secret that I love fantasy art, so I'm very excited about this show.  I've had the honor and privilege of working with incredible artists like Michael Komarck, John Picacio, Gary Gianni, Marc Simonetti, Charles Vess, Jeff Jones, John Howe, Marc Fishman, Donato Giancola, Stephen Youll, Tom Kidd, and many many more in the past, and it's my hope that some of them will be sending brand new original pieces for inclusion in the show... along with many new artists, some of whom may very well win places in my personal pantheon.  I look forward to seeing all sorts of wild, new, exciting visions of my world and characters.

You can check out the gallery website at http://www.ltdartgallery.com/

Artists who would like to submit their work for consideration for inclusion in the show should contact James Monosmith at the gallery email.

(At this date, I can't promise that I will be able to attend the gallery opening.  But if I can, I will).

Really Exciting News! As someone who studied Art and Loves Fantasy I've always enjoyed the medium as well!

Here's hoping you can make it to the Emerald City! :)

graphic novels
Hey George, this might be a little off-topic, but do you have any idea when the next Game of Thrones graphic novel issue is coming out? (#17)

Re: graphic novels
My vendor says Oct 30.

I really like the very faithful adaptation and am generally pleased with the artwork.

Its a good excuse for another re-read of The Game of Thrones.

This is exciting news. I'll work with my geeky peeps in the Northwest Science Fiction Society to organize a field trip to the gallery.

Oh my God...
I wish I could go, I would love to see the pieces once posted online if they show it on their web page.

Hope the exhibit comes to NYC
Did anyone else's heart skip a beat when they saw "Winter is Coming" in the subject line? I thought for a split second that "Son of Kong" might be dead...

That said, I'm excited to see the collection. The world of ASOIAF is so rich and full of endless possibility, and is a veritable primordial soup for great art. Make the trip to NY!!!! (please)

It'll be awesome if similar Ice and Fire art shows happen throughout the world. There has definitely been a wide variety of artwork, as you mentioned, throughout the years and in various formats. Any chance of 'poster collections' (ala Ted Nasmith, Alan Lee or John Howe Tolkien material) being released? That'd be an awesome idea if possible.
