At a time when the rest of the Bristol media seems to be obsessing about the new Broadmead opening, it’s nice to flag up another opening that’s more related to Bristol.
Wouldn’t normally publish a press release word for word, but this one made i smile.
Broader than Broadmead
Now that Cabot Circus and all its corporate guff comes to town, why not support some Bristol Fashion that’s a bit more homegrown? Guerrilla Galleries opens it latest exhibition on the very same day (except it’s a week later now – Ed).
Showcasing a mix of Bristol, UK and international graffiti and street artists, you’ll be able to buy one-off canvasses and limited edition prints from the likes of Mr Jago, Inkie, Dora, China Mike and Zase and there are many more established artists and emerging new talents also exhibiting.
Gallery owner Julian Monaghan says: “Just like the intrepid explorer Cabot I love rum, but I can’t stand the circus.”
Once he sobered up he also said: “Street art is the new movement in the art world right now. From Thursday, you’ll be treated to exciting and original pieces of art created by some the best graffiti and street artists around today.”
The preview night is on 2nd October between 7-10pm at 140-142 Gloucester Road. Drinks will be provided by the usual pissed off minions.
The exhibition will run for a month. See www.guerrillagalleries.com for more details.
Guerrilla Galleries is Bristol’s only dedicated street art and graffiti gallery.
Guerrilla Galleries, 140-142 Gloucester Road, Bishopston, Brizzle, BS7 8NT.
2nd October for a month. Or when the art sells out. Whichever is first, like.
Note for those who thought this show was opening this Thursday by the way, it’s not now, it’s a week later…
