Call for artists!
Organizers of the Twitter Art Exhibit (TAE) – –

of pounds for charity with exhibitions being held in the USA, UK, Australia
and Norway.
Up to 1,000 artists from around the world are expected to submit work for
next year’s show – with submissions coming from amateur and professional
artists, celebrities as well as members of beneficiary charities.
All artwork will be sold for a flat price of £30 at the exhibition and then
online with proceeds going to the Encephalitis Society ( Based in Malton, North Yorkshire, the Encephalitis Society supports individuals and families around the world who have been affected by
encephalitis – inflammation of the brain.
Actor Mathew Bose, Ambassador of the Encephalitis Society, said: “There has
always been a strong presence from local artists at previous exhibitions
and we’d love that to be the case again this time round.
“It is not only a wonderful opportunity to showcase your work and reach new
audiences, but a chance to support a charity which helps people whose lives
have been forever changed by encephalitis.”
