RETURNING to our streets for a weekend of creative canvases, exquisite sculptures, and unique jewellery items, is the North Bristol Art Trail.
Now in its 13th year, the trail provides a chance to discover an abundance of different mediums, displayed at more than 50 venues - including artists' homes, galleries and community centres.
From first time exhibitors, to gallery professionals, more than 100 local artists will be featured on the trail, which covers St Andrews, Bishopston, Redland, Montpelier and Westbury Park.
The weekend event runs from 28-30 November.
Artists will also be 'greening' up the trail this year to tie in with Bristol being awarded European Green Capital 2015.
They will be using the theme 'Reduce>Reuse>Recycle' - whether artists are inspired by environmental themes, using eco-friendly paints or materials, or recycling bags or wrapping for purchases.
On the weekend of the event, the scout hut on St Bartholomews Road will offer children’s arts and crafts activities, while charity Life Cycle UK will once again be showcasing their bike recycling project at Horfield prison.
From the beginning of November, group shows are on offer at Boston Tea Party, Planet Pizza and Room 212 art gallery.
Trail maps have been delivered through peoples' doors or maps are available to pick up from public venues or download from the website.
The art trail will take place from 10am-6pm on November 29 and 30, with preview evenings at selected venues on November 28.
