THE TY ART EXHIBITION

Submissions: 1 June 2016 – 31 July 2016
Exhibition dates: 1 September 2016 – 28 February 2017

A show of vibrant contrasts and stimulating styles within three categories, each shown in adjoining rooms at TY Seven Dials in Covent Garden, Central London. The inaugural TY Art Exhibition will provide a platform to display artworks in a variety of mediums, formats and genres by amateur and emerging or established contemporary artists.

The TY Art Exhibition is a concept conceived and curated by Joe Faulkner, a barista by trade but also a talented photographer, who wants to encourage people from all backgrounds to engage and take part in art and photography at any level.  TY is excited to collaborate with Hotshoe Magazine and Nobrow Press who will both be lending their professional guidance and gifting competition prizes this year.

Amateur artists choose to submit entries within three categories:
1. The Amateur Lomography Exhibition
2. The Hotshoe Photography Exhibition
3. The Nobrow Illustration Exhibition
