The College threw open it’s doors on Friday night as part of the Bristol Biennial (1st – 16th June).
It was a hugely busy and succesful night attracting artists and the local community who took great pleasure in the vast array of art work and creativeness that was on offer, enjoyed walking the art and sculpture trail and then relaxed to the sounds of Yaffle and Insomniac Jack.
This work can continue to be seen throughout the 16 days of the Biennial, but in order to take in the whole event it is best to save your visit for a Thursday, Friday or Saturday as this is when Art-el Gallery and Kathy Hindes, 1000 birds sound and visual installation are also available to view.
