Art from the Heart.
We’re in Future Leap again! Showing jewellery, mosaics, stained glass, pottery, paintings and prints! It was great last year and we’re thrilled to be back!
The annual North Bristol Art Trail will be taking place on the weekend of the 25th-27th November 2022 in venues around Bishopston, Redland, Horfield, St Andrew’s, Ashley, and Henleaze. 110 artists will be showing their work in homes and community venues and you are warmly invited to come along and see what they have been creating.
Now in its 21st year, the North Bristol Arts Trail is one of the most important events in the Bristol art calendar. The artists taking part are a mixture of professionals and amateurs, and they have so much that they want to share with you. Taking a walk around the trail you will find paintings, prints, ceramics, jewellery, sculpture, photography, textiles and much more. There will be something to suit all budgets, from larger original pieces to inexpensive gifts and greetings cards.
But an art trail is not just about buying art. The North Bristol Artists are passionate about being creative. They love making their work and they really enjoy being able to show it to you, even if you are not an art-buyer. When visitors come and look at their work, they love it. So please feel free to come into artists’ homes and see what they have on display. There is no pressure to buy, or even to chat to the artist, so don’t feel anxious about visiting any of the trail venues – you are very welcome!
Many artists will be raising money for charity over the art trail weekend. Some will be donating the money raised from the sale of artwork to their chosen charity, while others will be providing refreshments to raise money. The North Bristol Artists know how lucky they are to be able to spend time on their art, the thing that they love. Using their art to raise money for good causes is a way of helping others too.
A number of venues will be offering refreshments and music, which is another good reason to have a walk around the trail and have a great day out in this creative area of the city. You can find out all about the artists taking part in this year’s trail and the venues where they will be showing their work at www.northbristolartists.org.uk. Art trail maps will be available to pick up from shops and cafes around the trail area from the beginning of November.
