Enjoy the creativity of the 2017 North Bristol Art Trail, 25–26 November

Laura Robertson – Bristol Critters

The ever-popular North Bristol Art Trail takes place over the weekend of 25–26 November this year, with a preview night on Friday 24, when you can relax with a mulled wine and chat to artists and friends.

This long-established trail offers an unhurried opportunity to buy original artwork – from paintings and prints to stone sculptures and jewellery – with a myriad of objects between. North Bristol Artists look forward to this weekend as an opportunity to show off the artwork they have been creating throughout the year. It’s a perfect time of year to inspire people to buy original artwork and craft for loved ones. Trail-goers can enjoy visiting artists in their own homes and studios, while bumping into friends and soaking up the atmosphere of streets bustling with art lovers. Some of our artists are recognised at regional and national levels for their art, craft or design work, others are working on international commissions. For some of these ambitious, full-time artists, the trail offers a network of like-minded people and also keeps them in contact with a public.

The skills of North Bristol Artists are wide and varied – from curating exhibitions, publishing books and starting new arts projects in education – to community support and public works. The North Bristol Art Trail is a time for every member to connect with the local community and share the wonderful wealth of art in the area.

Once you fall in love with a piece of art you can pay with cash, Bristol Pounds or old-fashioned cheques. Many artists are also set up to take card payments. There are even specially created NBA vouchers which can be purchased at Room 212. These beautiful vouchers are a great present to give to a friend or loved one to encourage them to buy from North Bristol Artists. They can be used all year round at Room 212 or by contacting artists directly.

The NBA website offers full details on every artist member, year-round, while the Artists Profiles, facebook and twitter will give you lots more exciting news of our projects and achievements.

This year the NBA have decided to cut down on paper by printing less trail maps. This means that there will be no door to door deliveries. However, plenty of venues in our area and around Bristol will have the maps for you to pick up.
