111 Coldharbour Road, Bristol
This small gallery, just off the Downs, is home to a diverse collection of mainly local, affordable art and crafts. It is packed with an evolving mix of original paintings, prints, sculpture and ceramics. There is always a great selection of images of Bristol here: from drawings and etchings of local landmarks to colourful contemporary graphic prints; from dark and moody night-time cityscapes to vibrant watercolours of the harbourside.
The ceramics and sculpture offering includes a variety of hand-picked, individual pieces including colourful decorative bowls and vases, fiery raku pots, delicate porcelain pieces and hand-thrown ceramics, as well as Christine Baxter’s irresistible iron resin garden sculptures.
This autumn there will be the latest prints by popular local artist Cath Read, followed by an eagerly awaited new set of paintings by Abigail McDougall on display. 2018 ends with the annual Christmas show, this year entitled ‘Magic, Myth and Moonlight’, starring Jay Luttman Johnson’s hand-painted linocuts and quirky structural pieces.
