Please Like Me Exhibition, Bristol, SPACE

Please Like Me Exhibition

An emerging artist currently based in Bristol. Hannah’s inquiries revolve around the ideas of what constitutes a portrait in today’s society.

This is a interactive portrayal of 10 single strangers living and working in Bristol. Please like me is a study of what we think of people when we view them from a far and why. This exhibition explores our cultures addiction to judging the book by the cover and our fascination with social media.

“Can you ever truly see yourself ?
To be is to be perceived- to know oneself is only possible through the eyes of another
Art is in the seeing
Our vision is constantly active, reacting to the present surrounding’s, informing each moment of our lives.
When you look at your reflection, what do you see?
What is essential to our being
We are not static or fixed forms but in constant transit, alongside the world we live in.”

Gender and Sexuality Exhibition, The Island, Bristol

Gender and Sexuality Exhibition

The Gender and Sexuality exhibition is running from the 7th – 12th of November from 10am to 5pm and is including a preview night on the 6th of November from 7pm – 10pm, where drinks will be served and the artists will be available to discuss their works and concepts with viewers.

Artists are exploring, in their own concepts and techniques, the ways in which art can be used to shine a light on themes society perhaps struggles to confront. Each artist is personally projecting what they deem to be the most prominent ideas surrounding gender and sexuality in the 21st century and questioning its development over time. Works include installations, interactive pieces, video art, sculptures and paintings all from up-and- coming artists.
The cost for the exhibition is £2 per ticket and can be bought here:

M2 AIR SHARE at The Vestibules, Bristol


M2 AIR SHARE is a celebratory exhibition and symposium. Held at Vestibules event space inside City Hall, College Green, Bristol over October Half Term; the event will showcase the work of several young artists (aged between 7 and 15 years) who have all been part of social making artists Ali Brown & Megan Clark-Bagnall’s M2 AIR (Artist in Residence) programme designed for children, inside BV Studios, their shared working space.

For the last year Ali & Megan have been opening their studio door to applications from young people to join their residency programme. Each young person has been given two or three titles to chose from (titles of Bristol art exhibitions on at the time of their residency). This title is the young artists starting point. Ali & Megan act as supportive Su-Artists and together the trio strive to realise the creative vision of the young artist over two days on a ten pound material budget. All the outcomes have been surprising, exciting and interactive.

Hidden Chords at The Island, Bristol

Hidden Chords

Hidden Chords brings together two parallel but related visions of spirituality and oneness expressed in the artwork of Lesley Cottle and Corinne Randall.

Corinne Randall’s inspiration started with the compilation of a series of books on spiritual themes, each one related to a specific  colour. The ideas developed in these books are then refracted out into a series of large abstract panels which relish the joy of purely visual qualities; mark making techniques, broad and detailed brush strokes and resonating colour hues.

Lesley Cottle is influenced by he background in psychotherapy and spirituality. In her artwork she creates visual reminders of the endless journey of the human spirit towards its most authentic self. Her paintings are patchwork inspirations drawn from diverse eras, cultures and spiritual traditions which search for competition in compositions of unity and connection.

You are invited to the Preview night with refreshments and artists talk on Tuesday 17th October 6:30 – 9pm

The exhibition ill be open 17th – 22nd October 12 – 6pm
The underlying motivation for this exhibition is a celebration of the bicentenary of the birthday of Bahá’u’lláh, the founder of the Bahá’i Faith. You are therefore also very warmly invited to attend a Holy Day celebration which will be held in the gallery space, with a musical devotional and dramatic presentation on 20th October at 7.30pm
