Themed exhibition highlighting the best of traditional and digital art.
ARTbound and Creative Calderdale invite artists and designers throughout Calderdale and surrounding areas to join this open call exhibition to celebrate the strengths between traditional and digital methods of creating art. This collaboration will aim to highlight the vast advances of digital technologies within art and display the visually distinctive methods, all of which employ the study of traditional techniques and inspiration.
Tra-Digital will be showcased during a one-off screening of ‘Made You Look’ a documentary film created by the ‘Look and Yes’ collective in London about the UK DIY graphic arts scene emphasizing the creativity in a digital art age.
This opportunity will shine a light on our local and neighboring artistic talents enabling artists to expand their networks, exhibit their creations and be inspired by great traditional painting, digital art and film.
