This weekend: don't miss The People's Art Fair in Stokes Croft

Posted on: 14 Feb 2020

The first-ever People's Art Fair will be going down at the People's Republic of Stokes Croft HQ on Friday 14 and Saturday 15 February.

 

The PRSC are hosting an exciting collaboration between artists, musicians, workshop leaders, performers and the public this weekend, as they put together the first instalment in a monthly Art Fair series.

The People's Art Fair.

Kicking off with an opening exhibition and live music from 18:00 until 21:00 on Friday 14 February, this weekend's People's Art Fair is a celebration of the diversity of 21st-century love, in keeping with a Valentine's Day theme.

 

Live music on the opening night will come from Bristol-based singer-songwriter Rita Lynch. A powerful presence and truly unique voice, Lynch's solo performances are mesmerising, regarded by some as one of Bristol's best-kept musical secrets.

 

Attendees can also expect an open mic and jam session on Friday night, featuring Troy Ellis and a selection of renowned local musicians.

 

Artists confirmed for the exhibitions, running on Friday evening and throughout the Art Fair from 12:00 until 18:00 on Saturday, include photographer Colin Moody, augmented street artist Object and acclaimed illustrator Amber Phillips.

Street artist Ghostboy will also be selling his distinctive Valentine's Day cards at the opening night to mark the occasion, one of a variety of eye-catching market stalls at the Fair.

 

Entry to The People's Art Fair, running from 18:00 until 21:00 on Friday 14 and 12:00 until 18:00 on Saturday 15 February at PRSC HQ, is completely free.

 

Members of the public are invited to come along, meet some innovative artists and celebrate Bristol's creative community.
