Le Dame Art Gallery and USEUM are delighted to announce that throughout October they will host the first exhibition witnessing the collaboration between the prestigious gallery and the rapidly growing online art platform. The aim of this synergy is to bring emerging talent in the areas of painting, drawing and illustration from the Internet to the heart of the art world in London.

USEUM (www.useum.org), “The World’s Art Museum”, is a new platform where all artists are given the opportunity to promote their work and stand out on a global scale, exhibiting already more than 2,000 participant painters and illustrators from 100 countries. Le Dame Art Gallery, capitalising upon the media spotlight occupied by Le Dame after the success of ARTROOMS 2015, and with its prime location in the thriving arts hub that is the Melia White House, offers all these artists the opportunity to exhibit at the perfect venue in London.

For this first USEUM Exhibition no overarching - or restricting - theme has been selected. Instead, a focus on the aesthetic merits of art has been chosen, with each of the successful submissions emphasising the diversity of approaches practiced and ideas sought by artists on an international scale. For USEUM Founder and Managing Director, Foteini Valeonti, the showcase marks, ‘our privilege to live in an era where painting is not dominated by a single movement, but instead accommodates the flourishing of many different styles, subjects, themes, art movements and artists of various backgrounds.’

23 artists from 16 countries from 4 continents have been selected to join in USEUM’s debut at Le Dame Art Gallery. The inaugural event will take place on Tuesday the 6th of October at 18.30 in The Albany Suite at The LEVEL. All art works are available for purchase.
