Artists invite you to visit new studio venture

GLOUCESTER Road businesswoman Sarah Thorp and artist Emma Catherine are taking part in the West Bristol Art Trail this month.

Sarah runs Room 212 and has recently moved the gallery’s fine art printing arm, 212 Productions, into a studio just behind the Everyman Cinema off Whiteladies Road.

Studio owner Neil Roberts has invited Sarah and Henleaze-based Emma to join him when 212 Productions opens its doors to the public for the art trail on October 14-15.

This popular art trail of open homes and studios around Redland, Clifton and Hotwells is a great chance to meet artists and purchase locally made artwork and gifts. Neil and Emma will be showing their original paintings as well as selling prints and cards. Meanwhile Sarah will be offering a wide selection of her brass and copper jewellery, which can be found year round at Room 212 on Gloucester Road. 

212 Productions will be showcasing works by some of its most celebrated clients, including street artists, with limited edition archival prints. There’ll be a few guest artist appearances too. All are welcome to a preview evening on Friday October 13 from 6.30-9pm..

The extra space means that 212 Productions can  offer events, classes and exhibitions along with their printing services. It will be hosting regular life drawing classes with its art school, Back to the Drawing Board. 

Sessions will be held on Thursdays 6.30 -9 pm  A professional model plus basic materials and reference material will be provided.  Bristol Fine Art is offering 10% off supplies for those signed up to the course. For more information on this course, the Art Trail and fine art printing see
