IT'S 'Ship Ahoy!' this month at Gloucester Road Central's art gallery, Room 212.

Owner Sarah Thorp has launched the theme, which will be displayed in the shop window, to tie-in with Bristol's Nautical History and Harbourside Festival.

Artists will be showcasing work inspired by boats ('Bristol Green Capital' by Jenny Urquhart, 'Bristol' images by Susan Taylor, 'Shipshape & Bristol Fashion' by Fiona Willis, and Anna Duckworth's 'Racing Yacht' paintings), and marine life (Suzanne Clasby's 'Divers and Corals', Lina Loftstand's 'Whales' and Susie Ramsay's 'Bristol Harbourside').

Also on display will be artist Wanda Sowry's wooden automata sailing boats and paper models by Sue Bowen.

This oceanic theme aims to inspire people to think about the way they use, work and play with water, which will link in with one of the main themes for Green Capital 2015.
