ROOM 212 artists will be bringing the Day of the Dead to Gloucester Road this month with a themed window display and exhibition.

Running over the Halloween period, from October 20 to November 4, artists will be displaying painted mannequins, corsets and exotic headpieces to reflect the Mexican festival which celebrates and honours those who have passed.

For more details on Day of the Dead activities, visit Room 212 on Facebook.


THROUGHOUT October, Room 212 owner Sarah Thorp will be exhibiting work from local photographers.

Showcasing their works, from October 1-18, will be Jon Craig, who has a reputation for capturing special events in Bristol; wildlife photographer and Bishopston local Stephen Portlock; and Mark Hayward, who takes atmospheric photographs of the surrounding countryside.

All three photographers are taking advantage of the softer light of autumn to explore Bristol and capture images for the exhibition. 

They will be using the gallery’s in-house services at 212 Productions to print their images as the fine artist papers and canvases lend photographs a different, more painterly quality.
