Art-el Gallery News

March 14, 2012

So last weekend we spent all of Saturday taking down the gallery and re-hanging it with lots of new goodness for people to feast their eyes upon, including some outstanding new work by american artist RIPO, these will soon be up on the web-site too.

Here’s a little taster, but drop by and see us we’re open Thursday and Friday 11.30am to 5.30pm and Saturday 12.00pm to 4.30pm and we’ve got  the coffee pot on.

New RIPO pieces.

This will be the last re-shuffle now until our exciting exhibition schedule takes of in May.

First up Scottish artist, Lyken who has just finished making waves with a massively successful solo show in Glasgow, we’ve seen the pictures and if they’re anything to go by then you’ll want to be catching this show – opening night 4th May.

Next up is English writer Erms / Ermone who will be joing us from Paris (his current place of residence).  He has some pretty exciting ideas for the space so you’re not going to wanting to miss this one either.

ERMS

The opening night for this show is the 1st June which co-incides with the start of the Bristol Biennial, so this won’t be any normal gallery opening as there will also be live music and entertainment, to include Kev the poet and the Triangulators (full details to follow).

Ladies love the summer and this summer we are loving the ladies.  The 29th of June sees the opening of a joint show with Fran Williams and Leanne Ellis, two very different styles but both extremly beautiful.

Fran Williams, new work "Call To Mind". Available at the AAF, Battersea, London 15-18 March

 

Leanne Ellis new work "Intention"

Bringing Brighton to Bristol in August, Pinky opens his solo show on the 3rd.  Psychedlic wonderment!

Advent Opening – 4th Dec

December 6, 2009

What a night!

It was a quiet start which did cause a little anxiety as the 2 degree gallery space is pretty well unknown and off the beaten track!

But people did find us and the gallery and the evening saw a constant flow of people.  The space was really well received as was the art work on display which, as we were showcasing some new and different artists, gave us all a very warm feeling inside.

We were particularly pleased to welcome Pedro Matos a Portuguese artist who actually made the journey to be at the opening night.  It was really good to meet him and his girlfriend and were stoked that they could be there – thanks guys.

It was a particularly bleak evening on the weather front and we would like to thank everybody for turning out and making Friday such a great night – the mulled cider and flaming brazier certainly helped.  And many people hung around despite the weather evening after we shut the doors for the night.

Here are a few snaps of the evening – the show is open until the 20th December Wed – Sun 11am to 7pm so if you couldn’t make it on Friday or even if you did but want to come and have another gander there is plenty of time to pop along.

For those of you who are unable to make please take a look at the attched pdf document (click on the word advent below) and if anything takes your fancy drop us a line at all@art-el.co.uk.

69 Show Opens

March 11, 2009

The hard work paid off. After another frantic day of hanging the doors have finally opened to Bristol’s newest Gallery.

The art and the space were very well received and the venue was busy all evening, music played and beer flowed. In neighbouring units there were cyclists, live art and a burlesque fan dancer so plenty for all too see.

The show is open for the next 6 weeks so if you couldn’t make it last night there is still a chance to catch the show at 131-133 Wilder Street, St Pauls, Bristol open Wednesday – Saturday 11am to 7pm and Sunday 11am – 4 pm.

A big thanks to everybody that worked so hard in making this show possible, all the artists, Paul, Anabel, Sean Phil, Sam, Damian, Red Bull and to everybody that showed up and those that plan to.

69 Show Comes Together

March 10, 2009

What a day.

The day started at 11ish, laying out the art work where we intended to hang it. The art went up, and came back down again, got moved, went up and came back down again. This happened for most of the morning and well into the afternoon.

Then after a red bull or two, not only did we get wings but some inspiration too and the pieces started flying up. 12 hours later most of the show was hung, phew.

Looking forward to putting the finishes touches together tomorrow and throwing open those doors.

Spring Newzzzz

April 14, 2008

Yellow

Just a quick newsletter to bring you bang up to date with what has, is and will be going on over the next few weeks and months.

With just a moment’s reflection it was wicked that (man of the moment) SPQR’s first print release sold out in super quick time, so a huge thanks to everyone who ordered, not only the print but weighed in buying work from all artists featured on the site and of course thanks to the artists.

On the same tip, a huge shout to Nick Walker, Pam Glew, Adam Koukoudakis and Brian Jones who have all enjoyed success in LA in recent months.

(Note to self, shut up and get on with it)

We are pleased to hear that Mr Koukoudakis has just put the finishing touches to a nice edition on canvas of the image that has proved to be his most popular to date, Cheeky F**ckin’ Pigs!

Add to the mixer 4 new pieces of ‘utter loveliness’ on wood, from the little cockney diamond known as Dora.  She will soon be launching www.okdora.com, which will document her work, both indoor and out and generally ‘Dora’ things up.

Seems like Jago has gone abstract mental, he’s really dropping some fresh works now that he’s up and running in his new studio space. We will be putting up a new canvas more sweet originals on fancy paper.

There are another 6 SPQR 5th Man studies available which will grace the site for a mere 3 seconds very soon.

Looking forward to the sunny end of spring we have new and old pieces from Graham Paris (TCF Crew, Wet Shame, Kuilddosh and legendary typographer), along with new works from K-Guy and originals and prints from a number of the South West’s finest.

ALL new work will be released on a totally random basis i.e. when the insomnia is bad it could be 2am which would suit those not adhering to GMT!

Rock Steady
