Its a little bit strange at Studio Upstairs Bristol

Normally at this time of the year we would be running around making last minute touches to our annual Open Studio Exhibition…but not this year.

This year thanks to some funding from Arts Council South West we are moving our annual show to the autumn as part of Drawing Through. If you follow us on Facebook and Twitter you will undoubtedly have heard about this already so forgive me if this is old hat:

Drawing Through is a project that sees Studio Upstairs Bristol collaborating with artist Alice Jones and curator Jack Gibbon of Antlers Gallery. It will culminate in three – yes that’s right THREE – shows later this year in venues throughout Bristol. Our annual Open Studio will of course remain at our Studio space in Bristol’s Harbourside but the other shows will be in town and high profile!

So if you are getting your walking boots ready to tackle the  behemoth that is Spike Island’s Open Studios then remember that this year we are not exhibiting. Instead we are planning and plotting our next show! Watch this space to find out more as we confirm dates and venues over the coming weeks.
