Jamaica Street Studios hosting Open Studios until Sunday 16th JunePosted on: 14 Jun 2019
Bristol is positively brimming with outstanding artistic and creative talent of all kinds. Jamaica St Studios has been championing the bastions and pioneers of the city's creative hub for some time and their Open Studios sessions from Friday 14th to Sunday 16th June 2019 will celebrate over 20 years of local artistry.
Newly commissioned works and an auction will take place across three floors of what was previously the historic Carriage Works building. You'll get the chance to mix and mingle with over 30 artists who all feverish create their art and do their thing within the bohemian boundaries of the quirky, buzzy Stokes Croft.
The open studios will include works of varying artistic approaches and disciplines such as painting, printing, sculpture, illustration, graphic design and textiles.
It's a great way to immerse yourself into the creative mindset and hub of some of Bristol's most talented artists. Launch Night is on Friday 14th June between 7pm and 11pm, with a party (naturally) running from 11pm until the early hours at Jamaica St Stores.
Open Studios will give you access to the artists and their work on Saturday 15th and 16th June between 11am and 5pm. The Fundraising Auction will take place on Sunday 16th June at 5pm. Entry is free. For all the info about Jamaica St Studios or to see what else they've got coming up, head here.
Jamaica St Studios is located at 39 Jamaica Street, Stokes Croft, Bristol, BS2 8JP. Contact the team on 0117 944 5667 for more info.
