Charles Vess Lecture: May 2nd, NY

UPDATE: Charles talks about the talk here. And mentions a Jim Hanley’s Universe signing on Friday, May 4th. And sends me some images that will be discussed at the lecture – seen to the left.

Part Seen, Part Imagined
An informal visual survey of three predominate threads of the fantastic in the arts: the English fairy painters, the American pulp tradition, and the visionary artist.

I had the pleasure of seeing part of this lecture on Charles’ laptop at a bar in Austin. He covered a lot of great obscure and well-known paintings from 19th Century up through today. I’m very much looking forward to hearing the full lecture.

A new deluxe edition of Stardust will go on sale that same Wednesday.

This looks great, I met him briefly in Atlanta and the guy seems stuffed to the brim with information.

I hope that you can all come along and see the art. I'm contantly adding images into the mix as I purchase new art books or find a juicy image somewhere out there on the web.The worst part is trying to edit the amount of images so that the presentation isn't too long, but I love seeing these painting cast large on a big screen.

There was a post on Charles' blog regarding a video of the lecture. Rusty usually sets up a camera at the lectures to videotape them for posterity. However, to the best of my knowledge, they are not available anywhere public as of yet. I'll talk to him about setting something up through the SoI website.

oh and i can't wait for this.

Nice to see Bocklin's work. His stuff is just amazing, and,is contained in a great book(all in German) available from Bud Plant. Just terrific. Looks to be a good talk!

Arkday – The Society has been running some test on equipment that will do live broadcasts of lectures, demos, etc. to schools. Presumably it will record them at the same time. It wont be up for Charles’ lecture, but hopefully it wont be long.

Bottom left is Russian Bylini painting. I think that might be Svaytogor actually. Wow. Thank you for posting this. That was like a fresh breath of air from home :) And so beautifully done.

I knew the Metin2 gold so I always try my best to earn them more and more to make myself strong. I have never played the game before, at the beginning I did not know what is so I went to kill the monsters with the Metin2 yang that I earned with myself in the game. I will duty bound to a friend to help brush the Cheap metin2 yang together with my friends. I spend a good relationship is then fly to tears. If my levels are very high, I can go to Buy metin2 gold more and more and I will not depend on my friends to help me to earn them. I get some Cheap metin2 gold as the gifts to encourage me.
