About

Our Aim

Thankyou for taking the time to look at our Kickstarter.  Our aim is to print a 416 page, full colour, hard-backed book to coincide with our art exhibition Anne Bronte p.200.    We would greatly appreciate any help you can give, no matter how small.

Anne Brontë is the 'forgotten' sister of the famous Brontë family. Underestimated and undervalued in her time - and only now being recognised for her radical, feminist writing.    A couple of years ago - I attended an inspirational talk by Samantha Ellis - Author of 'Take Courage, Anne Brontë and the Art of Life'.   The more I found out about Anne, the more I wanted to know.....  

Anne Brontë as painted by her sister Charlotte

Anne was an accomplished artist and art was important enough to play a part in both her books - with her main character in the Tenant of Wildfell Hall, Helen Graham,  earning her living as an artist. Therefore the link between literature and art is a natural one.

Art Exhibition - Anne Brontë p.200

January 2020 we are celebrating Anne's bicentenary.  Scarborough was one of Anne's favourite places, again, mentioned in both her novels, and it is where she died and is buried.  Anne Brontë p.200 is a an art exhibition;  (one of a number of events taking place in Scarborough, in Anne's honour), involving  200 artists and 200 pages, (one for each year,) taken from a vintage edition of her book, 'The Tenant of Wildfell Hall.' 

Each artist receives a page from the book and creates an original artwork using either the page itself or Anne's life as inspiration.

Assorted page submissions - in no particular order

The Book - A symbolic artistic representation of the 'Tenant of Wildfell Hall'

The aim of this request is to fund the printing of an art book, containing professionally photographed images of the 200 exhibited artworks -  and will appeal to Brontë and art lovers alike.

The book is a symbolic artistic representation of the original book,  similar in size to the original and containing over 400 Pages.  Each artist /artwork will have a double-page spread incorporating the image on one page and words/description on the other. Artworks are already being submitted and they are an exciting mix of styles and mediums, and will create a fascinating read I am sure.  

Example Page
Anne Brontë's grave, St. Mary's Church, at the foot of Scarborough Castle with an amazing sea view - the sea being one of Anne's passions

 You are very welcome to join us at the exhibition which takes place at Woodend, Scarborough, from January 10th to February 8th.  If you would like to know more you can contact me on annebronte200@gmail.com, or join the mailing list which you can find on http://lindseytyson.com/annebrontep200 .There is also a celebratory day of events on January 19th which are free to join in.

THANKYOU!

Thank you for taking the time to read about our venture and for taking an interest.  ,  We appreciate any support you may be able to give, and you have my (and my fellow artists), utmost gratitude and appreciation.  If you can't support us financially, please feel free to spread the word and share our link. 

Best wishes, Lindsey

Risks and challenges

There are a lot of Brontë lovers out there, and I am hoping and praying that the word gets out. Applications for the artists started on 1st August, All 200 pages have now been allocated, and submissions are starting to come in. Apart from the possibility of not raising enough money to have the book printed, my main fear is that not all artworks are returned in time for the photoshoot. Any artwork pages missing will be replaced by an image of the original page. (Photos were taken of pages before allocation.) Anne's life and her story are inspirational and contagious!! I hope to achieve this aim so that the artists taking part, will be able to have a record of their achievement at an affordable price. The deadline for submissions is November 11th, so we have time to photograph work and get the book layout sorted before Christmas!! I truly hope that the Kickstarter is successful or the book is unlikely to be printed. The exhibition starts on January 11th and will run until February 8th and I hope to have the book printed in time for the start of the exhibition.
As you may imagine, this (and all the other events I am involved in) is an awful lot of work and organisation - I am working hard to make it all happen. For Anne......
