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.
The North Bristol Art Trail takes place 29th - 30th November from 10am - 6pm and we are venue no 16 on the trail. In the weeks leading up to the trail Room 212 will be showcasing work by North Bristol Artists, many of whom are regular exhibitors, such as Laura Robertson, Jenny Urquhart, Huw Richards Evans, Katie Wallis & Katie Johnston. Owner, Sarah Thorp will be showing her work ranging from decoupage vases, mirrors and boxes to upcycled jewellery and handknitted pure wool scarves, all in her favourite jewelled colours.
North Bristol Artists are concentrating on making the trail more eco in the build up to Bristol being the Green Capital 2015. Room 212 has always encouraged artists to use natural, recycled or reclaimed materials. Painters and print makers are learning to reuse frames and much of the jewellery and paper art is upcycled. We encourage you to use your own bags when shopping here and hope you don't mind us wrapping your purchases in recycled bubble wrap.
You are invited to come along to the Preview Evening for the trail from 6-9pm on Nov 28th. A chance to see the work, pick up a trail map and meet the artists.www.northbristolartists.org.uk
