Co-LAB – officially open

March 17, 2013

Wow what a great day it was yesterday.

The one thing that we didn’t think would be working in time was the wonderful coffee machine, so when on Saturday morning the Co-LAB shop slowly filled with the aroma of ground coffee beans everybody breathed a sigh of relief and smiles filled faces.

The shop was busy all day and filled with great tunes as the DJ line up took turns at the decks.

A huge thanks to everybody who mucked in to make this happen (and happen on schedule), to all those that made the effort to put your head through the doors yesterday (and hopefully in the days, weeks, and months to come), to the artists who made those extra special touches, to the DJ’s for banging out da tunes, to all those who helped get Co-LAB out there re-blogging, sharing and re-tweeting and of course to Ujima Radio’s Mistri, although if you weren’t listening I can’t tell you why! (98FM)

Co-LAB is now open everyday at 2-4 Fairfax Street, Bristol, BS1 3DB – Monday – Saturday 10am – 6pm and Sundays 11am – 5pm.

Come and see what it’s all about.

Andy Council Installation @ Zion, Bristol

June 4, 2012

So this event occurred just over a week ago now but since then things have been a bit crazy for us at Art-el, however it’s still worth a mention and a few pics.

In Bedminster Down you can found a little gem of a communty art space,  ZION promotes art from within the local community by showing regular exhibitions and holding creative events and other activities including quiz nights, markets and workshops.

In April of this this year artist and illustrator, Andy Council painted Zionasaurus in the centre’s garden to celebrate the official opening.

Since then Andy has spent a fair bit of his time at Zion turning this painting into sculpture, and after a complicated construction, Zionasaurus was finally installed at Zion Community Art Centre, Bedminster Down, Bristol and received an official launch party on the 26th May.

And, whilst on the subject of Andy Council, here’s the piece he painted at Upfest this weekend (a bit more current!), on North Street’s Workout Gym, Bristol.

Amazing Art-el Gallery Pictures

April 10, 2012

We were e-mailed these incredible photographs of the gallery over the Easter weekend from JoE Clarke who is a co-resident at The College.

The e-mail simply read “Happy Easter”.

Check out more of JoE’s work at his website http://www.joe-clarke.com/ or check out the coming together of his new blog spot whilst you’re exploring wordpress http://joeclarkephotography.wordpress.com/

Studio Drop In

April 7, 2012

So having decided to award ourselves by having the weekend off from the gallery, we were up bright and early to tread (or more likely drive) the streets of Bristol to get some flyers our there for Art-el’s next show ‘Pattern Interrupt’ (a solo show with Mark Lyken opening 4th May 6-9.30pm incase you didn’t know!).

So even when we’re off, we’re working!  However we soon learnt that this wasn’t the case for all as we hit closed door by closed door!!  So with a failed mission in view we decided to drop in on a few friends who too were working!

Mr Jago and Chinamike busy painting in the studio (also shared with Andy Council, DAN, 3rd Eye and Gregor Minto), here are few shots from the studio of creativity and complete madness!

Crimes of Passion

April 3, 2012

In the spring of 2009 nearly 50 of Bristol’s best known and most successful graffiti and street artists invaded the city’s oldest and grandest gallery, the Royal West Of England Academy (RWA).  It was a brave gamble allowing the art to be spray directly onto the walls of the Academy, but a gamble that paid of as record numbers attended and it was hailed as the show of the year.

Here’s a little reminder of what it was all about.
