Chance to meet talented artists

LOCAL artists and galleries will be opening their doors to showcase unique pieces of work this month, as part of the West Bristol Arts Trail. The free event, taking place over the weekend of October 17-18, 11am-5pm, will exhibit over 100 local artists’ work across Redland, Clifton, Cliftonwood and Hotwells. Lord Mayor of Bristol, councillor Clare Campion-Smith, will formally open the event at a public preview evening at the Bristol School of Art, Clifton, on October 16, from 5.30pm. Artists will be on hand over the weekend to discuss

their work or to receive any commissions. Besides artists’ homes, venues also include hotels, schools and churches. Room 212 is one of the local galleries which will be exhibiting artists’ work during the trail. Owner Sarah Thorp said: “This really is affordable art as you can buy direct from the artist, and also learn about their techniques and thoughts behind the creations. “However, there is absolutely no pressure to buy work; you may simply spend a delightful weekend browsing some outstanding art in a lovely setting.”

The gallery will be featuring work from some of the West Bristol Artists, including Laura Robertson, Jenny Urquhart, Susie Ramsay and Anna Duckworth, from the beginning of October. All of the venues along the trail will have free maps to pick up. For more details on artists and venues, visit: www.
