North Bristol Art Trail

The ever-popular North Bristol Art Trail.

See work by over 100 artists in their homes, studios and galleries from St Andrews, Redland and Gloucester Road to Westbury Park and Henleaze.

This long-established trail offers an unhurried opportunity to buy original artwork – from paintings and prints to stone sculptures and jewellery – with myriad objects in-between. North Bristol Artists (NBA) 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 handmade designs 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; many show in exhibitions and galleries.

You may also enjoy live music, including local a-cappella group Kettle of Fish, at the home of Maita Robinson, who will be exhibiting her quirky handmade cards alongside textile artist Debby Bird. Other artists offer homemade cakes and refreshments – look out for the symbol on the map.

NBA are endeavouring to be as environmentally conscious as possible – from using biodegradable packing, reclaimed and recycled objects – to eco-friendly products. The trail is a chance for you to keep your carbon footprint down too – buying directly from local artists – so a great opportunity to do all your Christmas shopping! If you can’t afford an original piece you can buy a print or card of the artwork and many artists are represented in shops and galleries on Gloucester Road all year round.

See the NBA website for details of all the artists and to download the map – or pick one up locally at Room 212, Boston Tea Party, Coldharbour gallery

and bar Alchemy 198. You can also follow NBA news

on social media to get a feel of what’s coming up.
