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.

This summer, beginning in July, some of the finest artists dabbling in the realms of Faerie and the fantastic shall gather together in Brittany and England to show their work at the European INTEREG IV “Shared Legends Project”. These twenty-six English and French artists represent some of the best known and most beloved artists working today, including Alan Lee, Brian and Wendy Froud, Linda Ravenscroft, Terri Windling, Virginie Ropars, David Thiérrée, and Olivier Ledroit. The exhibitions shall take place at Comper Castle, Rennes, and Exeter.
The event was inspired by the tale of “Lanval”, attributed to the twelfth century writer known as Marie de France. 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

The premiere of ‘Peerifool’ by the Chagford filmmaking group was a great success, with a full picture house in Exeter, Devon on March 28th. The film is a magical children’s faery tale from the Orkney islands about three young girls outwitting a nasty ogre!
It is wonderful to see British folklore being brought to life in such a wonderful way. Director and faery harpist Elizabeth-Jane Baldry and the Chagford film group are now working on bringing us more magical movie making faerie fun.
Sir Lanval is the next film in production, with the international premiere to take place in Rennes, Exeter’s twin city, on 30th October 2010 with the UK premiere a fortnight later. More details can be found at: www.fairytalefilms.co.uk

Ticket sales for the premiere of Peerifool are now available online from the Fairytale Films website.

The film is a fabulous feminist tale collected in the nineteenth century up in the wild Orkney Islands.  The creators say, “This could be the first time EVER in the history of cinema that Scottish porridge fairies have been portrayed on the big screen”.

Elizabeth Jane Baldry says, “Our fabulous, darling, talented volunteers include an Oscar winner and a BAFTA winner working alongside all the kids and mums and dads and grandparents harnessing the collective creativity of a Dartmoor village. The warmth and generosity is utterly heart warming. So many people care about what we are doing here in the Chagford Filmmaking Group. Thank you to all of you who took part in the adventure”.
