An exhibition called 'The Nereids: contemporary carvings and lettering artistry’ is presented by the Lettering Arts Trust as part of London Craft Week. It is at Trinity House on Tower Hill, London, overlooking the Tower of London, from 4 – 8 October.
The work of 25 lettering artists (Charlotte Howarth, Nina Bilbey, and Annet Stirling among them) represent the 50 benign goddesses who are the Nereids, the daughters of Nereus, 'the Old Man of the Sea' in ancient Greece and Rome. They are all referenced in the classics.
Entrance to the exhibition is free but should be booked in advance. Opening times vary and can be seen on the booking page for the event on the Craft Week website. Click here to go to it.
On Monday (4 October) at 3.30pm there is an opportunity to tour Trinity House, the home of the charity that benefits seamen, and see the impressive collection of art and maritime artefacts. That costs £10 and pre-booking is essential. It can be booked on the same page used for booking a visit to 'The Nereids'. Click here to go to the page.
