North Bristol Arts Trail

23rd – 24th November 2013

Over 100 artists exhibiting in more than 50 venues.

Hello and welcome to the 2013 North Bristol Art Trail. This is very special time of year when a huge number of local artists, from first-time exhibitors to gallery-pros, show their work and invite everyone to come and see. As well as being an established artistic event, it’s also an important part of the north Bristol social calendar. As always you can expect to be thrilled by the range, quality and volume of creative output. From small jewellery and textile items to huge outdoor sculpture, there really is something here for everyone.  This year I will be at the St Barts Church beside St Andrews Park – Join us on the Friday evening for a glass of wine.

It’s just a few weeks until this year’s North Bristol Artist’s Trail. We’re showing as a group of six local artists at St Bart’s church, one of the most lively venues on the trail, at the top of of St Andrew’s Park. We’re opening from 7pm to 9pm on Friday 22nd November for drinks, and we’ll then be open over the weekend on Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th, from 10am to 6pm. As ever, Steve Perry has master minded an eclectic mix of musical performances, which should make for a fantastic combination of art, live music and of course tea and cakes, laid on by the church community. A full listing for the musicians and singers performing over the weekend is at the base of this email.

If you have time to drop in, it would be lovely to see you. Please do bring friends too!

Best regards – Paul, Mary, Chuck, Pete, Shelley and Fran.
