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.
Once again, Room 212 artists are contributing to an amazing array of work to the latest theme 'Day of the Dead'. This Mexican festival is a time when dead loved ones are remembered and their lives celebrated. Friday Kahlo the well known and loved artist is often associated with the colours, flowers and spirit of the occasion. Falling at the very beginning of November, the build up to the celebration occurs at the same time as Halloween so the exhibition at Room 212 will cover both themes with a strange and novel twist. Artists' work is in many mediums from paintings, prints, mirrors and vases to bizarre sculptures and jewellery.
A high quality and stylish gift calendar.
Some of our artists have depicted a memorable place in Bristol in our 2015 calendar. Many of our artists have limited edition prints available of their work. In store now!
