Welcome to IMPACT online exhibition
As our 2020 Chaiya Art Awards have been postponed until Easter 2021, after a suggestion from one of our artists, we decided to invite 100 of our shortlisted UK artists to submit their creativity into the Coronavirus circumstances we are all living through and to respond to:
The impacts of Covid 19, around the world, on families, society, health care and beliefs.
We have chosen just under 60 artworks, which we felt were relevant to the COVID theme above and combined to make an exciting and thought-provoking exhibition. We hope you enjoy your visit and do vote for your favourite on social media or email us your feedback here.
