Tingfest 2018

I was proud to help host and organize the 5th annual Ting Comic and Graphic Arts Festival at the ARTS Project in London, Ontario, from April 17 - May 5, 2018.

An homage to Merle Tingley's (Ting) work and influence on generations of artists, Tingfest is a rare forum for emerging and established artists to present their work to the public, which is not normally accessible through usual commercial channels.

Centering around a gallery show, the festival features a pop-up shop, workshops, artist talks, and more. All programming is free, open to all ages, and held on-site at The ARTS Project.

Plus, as a special 5th anniversary feature, we bring SHUFFLE -a 4PANEL Project curated by Ting alumnus Mark Laliberte- to our gallery. SHUFFLE is a collaborative animation that features the work of London-connected artists Heidi Berton, Meg Dearlove, Ben O’Neil, and another Ting alumnus Owen Marshall.
