Across the Way: Exhibition

February 25th 2010

I think I need to make a daytrip to Bristol to see this exhibition – a collaborative show between four artists/illustrators – Adam Hancher, Jack Hudson, Luke Jinks and Owen Gatley. A mix of folklore-inspired illustrations, papercutting, handpainted signage.. a dream show for me.

Might as well make a day of it if I do go – can anyone recommend any other nice things to see/do/eat in Bristol?

    Bristol is a young place, with great energy, and people are very friendly. I live in Brighton and the vibe is similar. We were there to visit our daughter last week. A cliché maybe, but Brunel’s Clifton suspension bridge is wonderful, you just have to see it. There is a Camera Obscura just above it, and Clifton Village itself is good to explore, there’s a beautiful if expensive deli, and individual quirky shops around the Clifton Arcade such as this one St Nick’s covered market, is great too, and Bristol Museum & Art Gallery (the one Banksy took over last year) is worth a snoop too. In fact you’ll have a great time wherever you go. You’ll just love it. Spend at least a weekend there.

    Oh yes and I forgot. In St Nick's covered Market you'll find the completely tasteless but fabulous Beast T shirts, and nearby there is this little Lebanese restaurant that does a cheap set lunch (during the week anyway). It is vegetarian friendly!

    Perhaps this comment is a little late but if you've not yet been to Bristol then there are so many places you would like! Stokes Croft, the area the Here gallery is located in, is full of graffiti and street art, there is a great gallery/cafe next door to Here (The Art House)and there are plenty more pop-up galleries and affordable cafes across the other side of the street. A ten minute walk can get you to Park Street which is full of little boutiques and interiors shops and Park Row, with the Friend & Co gallery and the Bristol Guild. The Waterfront/Harbourside area has the Arnolfini (gallery/bar/cinema/book shop) on one side and the Watershed cinema on the other.That should be more than enough to keep you busy for a day! x
