Girl Gang at SPACE, Bristol

GIRL GANG II // Art Show

GIRL GANG Art Show is back!

GIRL GANG Art Show is a group exhibition, bringing together (mostly) Bristol based artists and makers for a curated bi-yearly show. It aims to showcase the talent of women (cis and trans) and genderqueer people.

GIRL GANG celebrates friendships and relationships between women/other genderqueer identities, as they become a radical act within a society that constantly pits women/marginalised identities against each other.

GIRL GANG is a non-profit, DIY project run by Lisa Rose Illustration with the support of other involved artists.

Rooftops and Archways Exhibition at The Vestibules, Bristol

Rooftops & Archways Art Exhibition

In partnership with ArtSpace LifeSpace, Bristol based fine artist Susie Ramsay presents a new collection of paintings in her solo exhibition ‘Rooftops and Archways’. The exhibition comes to The Vestibules after recently being on display at the Christmas Steps Gallery, Bristol.

Susie’s continues her focus on Bristol’s architectural landscapes. Visitors will be able to view ten new paintings of the city, including Arnos Vale Cemetary, Colston Street, Bird Cage Walk, Hotwells and Cliftonwood.

Building upon her ‘Streets, Lanes and Skylines’ (2016) exhibition, Susie presents a collection of work that captures the cities viewpoints and hidden corners. Contrasting rooftops against the sky, warehouses lining the Harbourside, churches and alleyways, each painting provides a fresh perspective of the city.

About the exhibition, Susie said: “The aim of my new work is to present a bold and contemporary vision of Bristol. This collection presents a freer series of paintings than previous exhibitions, capturing the spirit and vibrancy of the city. My work is inspired by how the natural world impacts on our built environment. How a change in light, weather or season can transform our daily city landscape. ‘Rooftops and Archways’ is about revealing the hidden parts of Bristol and presenting the city in a new light”.

Susie will be present at the exhibition throughout the week to discuss the work and future projects.

Limited edition prints and cards will be available to purchase from the exhibition.

Extra information:

– The exhibition is free and will be open daily from 10-6pm.

Homeless Awareness Week exhibiton at The Vestibules, Bristol

Art 4 Change Homeless Awareness Week Exhibition

Art4Change is a project aimed at giving disadvantaged sections of the community the opportunity to gain self-confidence, transferable skills and to feel valued, by creating and exhibiting Art work that draws attention to a wide range of social issues.

For homeless awareness week 2018 we are asking three questions:
-How would you feel if you no longer had anywhere to live?
-What are the effects of mental health on individuals & society?
-How can we overcome the stigma surrounding mental health?

Visit The Vestibules
OPEN 10am – 3pm / Monday 26th – Friday 2nd March

By asking these questions we hope to raise awareness of the link between homelessness and mental health.
Mental Health can affect anybody from any walk of life and can be triggered by many factors including work related stress, relationship breakdown, bulling, physical and sexual abuse, to name a few , there are many social, environmental and psychological causes. One in four people suffer from a mental health issue at some point in their lives. One in six people report experiencing a common mental health condition (such as anxiety and depression) in any given week. Most of us are but one step away from this issue,
The content of the exhibition will be two wooden framed houses with cardboard panels, one of the houses has been put together in Workshops held at St Mungos. And one blank to invite the
gallery goers/general public to express their thoughts feelings. By answering the above questions they will respond to the house that has already been created so to break down and challenge pre conceptions that the public may have in regards to homelessness, to encourage a dialogue between the public and homelessness service users.
