UK Toy Art event

We often forget how far and wide the vinyl collectible and art toy world spreads. We are so pleased that the appreciation for art in a different form than canvas has become a collection, a job, a passion and now even enjoyable events like the UK Toy Art Event! Sharing a little bit of love from across the Atlantic – the UK Toy Art Event is taking place on August 25th 2018 and for those who may be able to attend but just need a little bit more info… here ya go!

TOY ART UK – LEADING TOY ARTISTS EXHIBITING IN NEW UK EVENT

 

Toy Art UK

25th August 2018 10am – 4pm ,

Riley Smith Theatre,

Leeds University Union.

Leeds.

West Yorkshire

LS2 9JZ

On the 25th of August 2018 In the United Kingdom, a group of leading toy artists are gathering for an exhibition and sale of work at Toy Art U.K.. This is an opportunity to showcase the work of toy artists from around the world and also to put the spotlight on a group of artists from the U.K.

 

The response to Toy Art UK has been tremendous, with artists and collectors alike being incredibly supportive and encouraging.The remit for Toy Art UK has always been to spread the word to existing and new collectors and find other markets for the amazing work that toy art collectors see everyday.

 

From the start Toy Art UK is to be artist focused and artist led, to that end they have created a roster of artists who create original work to a high standard. While the submissions for this event have been open to any artist, the actual artists included have been chosen specifically because their work reflects varied approaches to toy art creation.

 

Work is also being sent from artists from all over the world and the Toy Art team will curate and sell this work on the day. Further announcements about this work will be made as it arrives in the U.K.
