KICKING off Bristol's art trail season is a fresh new route extending to Westbury-on-Trym.
Over seventy artists will be showcasing their work across BS9, including paintings, handmade prints, glass work, mosaics, jewellery, textiles, ceramics, sculptures and photography.
Venues will range from the Scout hall at Stoke Bishop, the theatre hall at St. Monica’s Nursing Home, Stoke Bishop Village Hall, Westbury Village Hall and numerous private homes and studios.
All venues are free to enter and there will be an opportunity to meet the artists, watch some of them at work, and even buy quality art at very affordable prices.
BS9 arts chairperson, Stephen Howarth, said: "We’re hoping visitors to the art trail will take advantage of the beautiful green spaces in BS9 including the Downs, Golden Hill, Westbury Wildlife Park and Blaise Estate to enjoy a walk or cycle in the spring sunshine on the way to the delights of wonderful artistic creativity at the different venues.
"With plenty of opportunities for refreshments along the trail, we’re looking forward to making the weekend a wonderful time out for all."
The art trail will be taking place on May 10-11 from 11am-5pm. Leaflets showing the trail map and artist details will be available at every venue and also at local libraries, cafes, shops and galleries. Leaflets will also be posted through residents' doors.
