Phantasmal is inviting artists to submit their work to a captivating art exhibition centred around the theme of Surrealism.

This exhibition aims to celebrate the uncanny and unconscious. Inviting artists to express the dreamlike through a diverse range of mediums.

From painting and sculpture to digital art and mixed media, all forms of artistic expression are welcomed.

The exhibition seeks to transport viewers into the mysterious and dreamlike space. Artists are encouraged to delve into the strange, beautiful and unconventional.

Creating pieces that challenge the every day, engaging the audience in a journey through the extraordinary.

The exhibition will take place at 44ad ArtSpace in Bath Spa, UK. Spanning over two rooms in the Ground floor exhibition space from the 9th to the 14th of April 2024.

Artists will also feature on our online artist spotlight; through the online gallery at Phantasmal Gallery, this platform will showcase participating artists' individuality through personalised bios and statements about their work, including images from the exhibition.

We will also be hosting an artist chat on the last day of the exhibition (2 pm on the 14th April), where all the successful artists will be invited to introduce themselves and their practice.

This is very casual and just a great way to make some connections with other artists and the public. Artists can then collect their work after the talks.
