The 3rd Annual Ting Comic and Graphic Arts Festival is here!
April 26 – May 21, 2016
Opening Reception: April 30, 6-8pm
Returning to The ARTS Project, this four week celebration showcases the artwork of 11 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!
*A Big Thank You to Megan Arnold for designing the feature logo for the 2016 festival!
