Tingfest 2017

Get ready for the 4th Annual Ting Comic and Graphic Arts Festival!

April 25 – May 13, 2017TING_HorVert

Returning to The ARTS Project in Spring 2017 is Tingfest -a three-week celebration that showcases the artwork of several comic and graphic artists from London and the greater Southwestern Ontario area.

Named after Merle ‘Ting’ Tingley, the editorial cartoonist for the London Free Press from 1948 – 1986,  Tingfest is a celebration of his work and influence on multiple generations of artists.

Tingfest centers around an art exhibition at The ARTS Project, that will also feature a pop-up comic shop, panel discussions, screenings, workshops, and more. All programs are FREE to attend for ALL AGES!

While Ting 2017’s featured artists have yet to be announced, here are some of our past Ting Artists:

  • Bryan Lee O’Malley
  • Jeff Lemire
  • Diana Tamblyn
  • J. Bone
  • Megan Arnold
  • Seth
  • Jesse Jacobs
  • (and of course!) Merle Tingley

To make the wait for Tingfest a little easier, The ARTS Project offers drop-in Life Drawing Classes that are great for illustrators as well as the free London Comic Jam, which is held on the 3rd Monday of every month.
