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.
