212 Productions, the fine art printing arm of Gloucester Road art gallery Room 212, has recently moved into a studio just behind the Everyman Cinema (19 Melrose Place BS8). The extra space means that they are excited to be able to be a venue for the West Bristol Arts Trail Printer and owner Neil Roberts has invited Room 212 owner Sarah Thorp and (Henleaze based artist) Emma Catherine to join him when 212 Productions opens the doors to the public for the West Bristol Art Trail this 14 -15th October. This popular art trail of open homes and studios around Clifton, Redland and Hotwells is a great chance to meet artists and purchase locally made artwork and gifts. Neil and Emma will be showing their original paintings as well as selling prints and cards. Emma’s sumptuous oil paintings of a full moon over the Bristol Suspension Bridge, highlighted in gold leaf, is especially beautiful. Meanwhile Sarah will be offering a wide selection of her brass and copper jewellery, which can be found year round at Room 212 on Gloucester Road. 212 Productions will also be showcasing works by some of their most celebrated clients, including well-known street artists, with limited edition archival prints. There’ll be a few guest artist appearances too.
Pop into Room 212 to pick up a trail map today!
Neil, Sarah and Emma thought that they’d celebrate taking part in the art trail with a Launch Party and Preview on the evening of Friday 13th October. Everyone’s welcome for drinks and a chat from 6.30 to 9pm.
