Themes, Exhibitions & Featured Artists
Room 212 is a shop and gallery selling art and craft by local artists including the owner, Sarah Thorp. Based on the popular Gloucester Road, Bristol, Room 212 is at the hub of the North Bristol Art Trail (held during the last weekend of November) and Glos Rd Central, a group of independently owned local shops and galleries. Regular themes tie in with the seasons or Bristol events and inspire artists to produce new work. Our themes are inspired by the time of year, events happening in and around Bristol or by the artists' work. Selected artists are invited to feature in the exhibition area.
'This month's featured artist is Bristol based illustrator Tom Bonson. We are showing his original paintings along with prints of his popular and quirky illustrations. Tom drew the wonderful illustrations for both of the bestselling Bristol Giants children's books by local author Oliver Rigby. Prints can be made from any of the illustrations in either book, just send your request to 212 Productions.
The latest Bristol Giants book 'The Bristol Giants Save Christmas' is available at Room 212 for £6.99
