This bold, imaginative exhibition features works by twenty-six artists from two countries interpreting a single, poignant theme. Contributors to the exhibition range from internationally known painters, sculptors, and graphic artists such as Brian Froud, Wendy Froud and Alan Lee to young rising stars in the mythic arts field.

Organised by the Chagford Filmmaking Group in Devon, and the Centre for the Arthurian Imagination in Brittany, this is part of the Shared Legends Project, a unique cultural exchange between two countries that share a rich mythic heritage. Props from the film Sir Lanval will also be on display.

The Shared Legends Project is funded by the European Union and South West Screen. The project consists of a film and an exhibition uniting artists, creatives and communities from France and England.

Lanval is a knight of King Arthur’s court, who finds himself attracting the attentions of a beautiful and mysterious woman. The woman offers him her love, her wealth, and herself, under the condition that Lanval must never speak of her. A fifty-two minute film based upon “Lanval” by the Chagford Filmmaking group shall be presented at the exhibition. Alan Lee has described director Elizabeth-Jane Baldry’s films as “imaginative and refreshing, a new storyteller from the green heart of Devon.”  Elizabeth-Jane is also an accomplished harpist, and Brian Froud has likened her
