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.
1st - 16th Oct. For the first time Room 212 will be featuring work by Bristol's photographic artists. From events photographer Jon Craig, who has stunning pics of major events round Bristol, to Mark Hayward's evocative, natural shots and Stephen Portlock's amazing wildlife photos which have featured in national publications.
