LOCAL artists and galleries will be opening their doors this month, to showcase unique pieces of work as part of the West Bristol Arts Trail.
The event, which will be taking place over the weekend of October 11-12, is to exhibit over 100 artists' work across Redland, Clifton, Cliftonwood and Hotwells.
Redland resident and Lord Mayor of Bristol, councillor Alistair Watson, will formally open the event at a public preview evening at the Bristol School of Art, Clifton, on October 10, from 5.30-7pm.
Room 212 is one of the local galleries which will be exhibiting artists' work during the trail.
Sarah Thorp, owner of Room 212 on Gloucester Road Central, said: "The trail is a fantastic way to meet artists, printmakers, photographers, potters, textile artists and jewellers - and have a nose around the beautiful places where they work and live.
"Meeting artists direct offers the chance to chat about creative methods and the story behind the art. Its also an opportunity to buy unique art at affordable prices."
The gallery will be featuring work from some of the West Bristol Artists from the beginning of October.
All of the venues along the trail will have free maps to pick up. Homes and galleries will be open from 11am-5pm during the event. For more details on artists and venues, visit: www.westbristolarts.com.
