At last! BS16 gets its own arts trail
Published on: 31 Oct 2014
AN ARTS fair - the first of its kind in the area - hopes to put BS16 on the creative map.
The BSpoke16 event will feature the work of talented artists in the area, many of whom sell their work to galleries across the world.
Exhibitors include printmakers, hand cut art, glass makers, reclaimed wooden sculptures, jewellers and enamellers.
Organiser and artist Catherine Williams said: “Art trails have sprung up all over Bristol and they have successfully put communities in touch with creative people locally, but so far not in this area.
“As a response we have arranged this exhibition – the first of its kind here - to display local talent to local people.”
Catherine, 39, who lives in Emersons Green, said she hoped the exhibition would help give BS16 a stronger arts identity, like areas such as Southville have.
“We are hoping that a successful exhibition will put BS16 on the creative map! The aim is to attract as many people as possible to come and see the selection of bespoke handmade objects and artworks being produced locally and have a chance to talk to the creators about their inspirations.”
BSpoke16 takes place at Emersons Green Village Hall on Sunday November 30 from 11am-4pm. Refreshments will be available.
