Co-LAB opens 16th March 2013

March 8, 2013

It was a tough decision for us at Art-el Gallery to call it a day at The College Project at the end of last year, but they do say that as one door closes another opens and that is exactly what has happened.

Art-el has joined forces with the lovely PAPERpublication to form the collaborative community that is Co-LAB.

A coLABoration of 2 art galleries, a cafe,  4 T-Shirt companies and a publication all under one roof, this is going to be the new cool place to be.

The shop opens on the 16th March so come and join us for our opening at 2-4, Fairfax Street (corner of Nelson Street), Bristol BS1 3DB, between 11am – 11pm.

We are all currently working hard to turn this shop into the monster that is is destined to be, here are a few snap of work in progress .. as you can see there is still lots to do.

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!

So peeps, get those dates in your diaries, it’s good times a head!

 

SEE NO EVIL, BRISTOL

August 16, 2011

Nelson Street in Bristol’s City Centre was a buzz on Saturday as the party got into full swing.

But of course it’s all been about the painting.  At the start of the week the walls were boasting a massive piece by Ayrz from Barcelona, a fresh mural from New Yorkers the TATS CRU, a huge black and white piece by Shoe from Amsterdam and the making of a piece by Mr Wany from Italy.  Now as the party comes to an end there are further pieces on the main street from El Mac from LA, Mau Mau, Xenz, Cheo, Jody and a giant vandal by Bristol’s Nick Walker and many many more.

If you still haven’t been down to check it out but do intend to, make sure you meander off the main road as up steps, around corners and in alleys you’ll find some of the Bristol artists we all know and love including Richt, 45RPM, Tom Hine, Paris, Milk and Andy Council.

Here are a few pics from the first days of painting- for a full set of pics, which were updated as the week progressed please visit.

SEE NO EVIL AUGUST 2011 – BRISTOL

July 19, 2011

BIG plans for Nelson Street in Bristol city centre have now been publicly revealed. 

Over 30 UK and international artists will be in town from the 14th to the 21st August busy transforming the dingy streets’ grey concrete buildings into something spectacular.  Some of these buildings are in access of 50ft tall so there are going to be some HUGELY impressive murals on show, in fact quite possibly some of the largest in the world.

Organisers, including Bristolian graffti artist Inkie aka Tom Bingle, hope that  – See No Evil – will be the biggest local  art event since Banksy took over the Museum of Bristol in 2009 giving the city a massive boost.

The road will be closed for the weekend of the 20th & 21st August for a street party, with local traders opening street stalls, music and pop up bars on the ground floors of some of the vacant properties.  There will also be workshops so people can learn more about the art form. 
 
Nelson Street has capacity for up to 5,000 people at any one time, but if there are more than that then the other access points at Christmas Street and Broad Street will be closed off.  Visitors would be let in at the Colston Avenue end of Nelson Street, and leave at Union Street.

Participating international artists include El Mac (LA), Smug (Australia), Tats Cru (NY), Swanski (Poland), Wow 123 (Germany), Neils ‘Shoe’ Meulman )Holland),  Mr. Wany (Italy), Revert (France), Kashink (France) & Otto Schnade, (Chile) and of course there will also be many of your favourite UK artists including Inkie, Nick Walker, Kid Acne, Mr Jago, Soker, Xenz, Paris & Cheo to name but a few.

Make sure you’re there and witness history being made!
