A temporary online exhibition focusing on the beauty and timelessness of old-style and romantic gothic. Think haunted castles, sleepy forests and whispering tombs...

I'm Ester, a second year student in Arts Enterprise in Leeds, and as part of one of my units, I am curating a small and temporary exhibition focusing on artworks from 3-4 artists (with 2-3 pieces per artist). 

I will be exhibiting artworks that focus on gothic themes, which can border on steampunk, Victorian and other old-style gothic branches before the begining of the modern wave of goth culture in the 70s/80s.  

I am looking for artists between 18-25, students and amateurs alike, around UK who create or have created artwork inspired or revolving around old-style gothic themes and elements. I accept 2D forms of art such as photography and digital as well as traditional, though no videos, sculptures or similar 3D artworks will be accepted.  

The exhibition will be launched and held on Artsteps, a programme which allows you to create a virtual  reality gallery space to display your artworks to an online audience. 

The exhibition will be held on 10th May, with further details upcoming . Since there is unfortunately very little time, it would be best to submit old works you have prepared rather than start creating something new. 

I have also created an Instagram account for this exhibition, @gothique_gallery_, where artists who wish to participate can also DM me for details and submissions. I will be promoting your submitted art by posting up previews that will help to build interest and an audience. 

I really look forward to seeing what you may deliver!
