Artist Call for London Fine Art Photography Exhibit

Shotgun Studios are searching for emerging and established artists who utilise photography in exciting and innovative ways. This call is for London-based talent who explore realms of the surreal in their art practice.

Strange Lands will be a group exhibit, with the central theme of illusion. We’re excited to offer this exhibition opportunity to top emerging and established artists, showcasing fine art photography at Shotgun Studio’s art gallery in Acton, West London. The exhibition will run for 3 weeks, from September 9th – 29th 2017, with an exhibition launch party on Friday 8th September.

Shotgun Studios is an independent art and music venue, collaborating with dynamic creative talent to push the boundaries of the conventional gallery concept.
