Tintype supports distinctive international artists. Our gallery programme is informed and led by artists' practices. Once a year we offer the gallery as a project space leading to a subsequent show.

Tintype also helps emerging artists develop their work critically and commercially. Annually we offer a solo show to a young artist who has recently graduated from art school.
The gallery was started by Teresa Grimes and Pat Treasure in 2010.

Teresa Grimes became sole-director in 2014.
