    Allentown Fantasy Art exhibit

    Allentown Museum is hosting the largest fantasy art exhibit ever in the U.S. Anyone planning on going? It might be nice to get to meet up with some of you guys/ladies. Looks like its going to be amazing.

    I'll be goin eventually, I just don't know when. I'm from Allentown and actually used to work at the museum for awhile. One of my best friends still works there. I don't think I can make it to the opening though.

    Wish I could. Sadly I'll be out of town for the opening at least.

    Yeah I don't know if I can make it to the opening either but it runs until September so that gives plenty of time. Just didn't want anyone to miss it.

    Here's some more info from the guys at Muddycolors including a partial artist list.
    Here's a few just to give a little taste as to the talent that will be showcased:

    William Blake
    Howard Pyle
    N.C. Wyeth
    J.C. Leyendecker
    Dean Cornwell
    Frank Frazetta
    Boris Vallejo
    H.R. Giger
    Brian Froud
    Brom

    Also included:

    Franklin Booth
    Joseph Clement Coll
    William Pogany
    Alphonse Mucha
    Arthur Rackham
    Frank Schoonover
    J. Allen St. John
    Roger Dean
    Jon Foster
    Phil Hale
    Jeffrey Catherine Jones
    Iain McCaig
    Moebius
    John Jude Palencar
    Justin Sweet
    Barry Windsor-Smith
    Bernie Wrightson

    and many more. I just saw this today and it's pretty bad-ass. There are about 160-some pieces (5 Frazettas). I'm a little perplexed as to why they didn't make this a traveling show. I'm also wondering why they aren't using more well known names and images to advertise it. Anyway, if you get the chance, it's worth checking out. I also discovered a few artists I didn't know about before, such as:

    Marc Fishman
    Jose Segrelles
    William James Aylward
    Thomas Kuebler

    Anyone happen to know if Amtrak goes anywhere near this place...? :/ (All their directions involve driving... Not a good sign for us carless folk.)

    I can't find any leads on public transportation that goes up there, period.

    You'll have to take a bus. Try Trans-Bridge or Bieber. There are probably others but I don't know what they are.
