Needed a general post for the exhibition, which includes press reviews, hopefully this thread will be of use, going forward.

Here is Robin Reid's review on File770:

She's a big fan of the trees theme through his artwork. Also, she agrees with me that a second visit to the exhibition is a great idea (she wasn't able to - I did three and wish I could have squeezed in a fourth).

Yes, I would have benefited from more visits and time just standing in one spot looking. As with other art, Tolkien's art and those Bayne poster maps were very rich and needed more time to see 'the forest & the tree' of a work, and to become conscious of some of the details, symmetries, patterns, use of color. Just amazing.
