Jeff Murray Meetup and Studio Tour

For those of you in the metro-Atlanta area on Saturday, November 10,
the Atlanta Tolkien Fans group will hold their monthly gathering at the home
and studio of Jef Murray between 2pm and 5pm that afternoon.

For those of you who have never seen Jef’s Middle-earth, Narnia, and
fairy tale paintings, sketches, and prints ”up close and personal”, this is
a great opportunity. The gathering is informal, and Jef will be showing
everyone his studio and the many, many paintings he and Lorraine have
strewn throughout the house.

Come meet other fantasy fans in the metro-Atlanta area! You can go to
the Facebook page linked below to RSVP, or email Jef on his FB page:
