Emporium Disguised as an Estate Agent

Emporium estate agent

The Emporium is a not-for-profit community gallery that was established a year ago in Stokes Croft using a reclaimed building which had previously stood derelict for over 25 years. The space now welcomes exhibitions, meetings, workshops, etc. and is open to all.

Their latest exhibition, which has just finished, consisted of two parts. The first being the ‘People for places’ installation and the second ‘Emporium @ the Emporium’.

The Bean Feast was a much loved annual event in Montpelier in the 1700s. This year it’s been brought back to life as a community celebration of local heritage, local harvest and local genius.

I went along last weekend (12 September ’09) to see one particular activity which involved a group of local graffiti artists decorating some of the garage doors along St Andrew’s Road.

The ‘Triple Drop’ exhibition, featuring new work by Acerone, Ziml and Dicy, opened it’s doors on Friday 11 September with a pseudo-private viewing in the evening. Here are some photos from the night which show the wide range of work on display at the Centre Space gallery on Leonard Lane.

On Saturday 12 September Dicy, Acer and Ziml will be opening a new exhibition at the Centre Space in Bristol. Expect fresh and unseen work by these three Bristol based artists, who were recently featured at the Crimes of Passion show back in March of this year.

The exhibition only runs for 4 days, so don’t hang around and get down there smartish.


Threenine Presents 'The Drop' at Severnshed

Threenine exhibition at the Severn Shed

Threenine Studio is opening a new show on the 1 September 2009 at 7:30pm which will be held at the Severnshed and runs until the 1 October 2009. The show will feature work from the Boswell, Lokey, Cheo, Fiction, Cons, Oscar Maia and plenty more.

Some may remember that Banksy held one of his very first indoor shows at the Severnshed back in 2000, so the place does carry some history.

This is the second Art Show that Friend & Co have held at the Spotted Cow pub in Southville, and while I couldn’t make it to the first one, I made sure I popped by this time to see the set up. The event is organised by Tom Friend, founder of Friend & Co, and takes place in the garden area of the Spotted Cow inside a marquee.

The pictures that follow show works by Sainty, Andy Council, 45RPM, Inkie and Acerone, which were just some of the artists on display.

Live painting at Lakota club

Live graffiti at Lakota club

Bristol’s graffiti artists, including Cheo, Jody and Sepr, have been busy today painting the outside of the Lakota Club near Stokes Croft. The plan is to paint both walls with a desert background, with various graffs over the top. Work will continue today and tomorrow, and should be finished off early next week.

I’ll check back in few days to get photographs of the finished pieces.

Jody got involved in the Bristol graffiti scene in the late 1980’s, when he started painting at the infamous Barton Hill Youth Club under the direction of John Nation. He subsequently took an 18 year break from graffiti, but is finally back, reinvigorated and showing off his latest works at the Weapons of Choice gallery.
