Get involved with free art Friday- all you need to do, is make a small piece of art (on paper or card if you want) make a label like the one above with your website in the other side, and leave it somewhere for a lucky finder to find! Then post a photo of your free gift to
Free Art Friday Bristol / Facebook
Alternatively, if you find free art, post a picture of you with it to free Art Friday Bristol on Facebook!
I wonder if any other SBA members have been contacted by a certain Michael Gard who signs himself 'Grad.' I guess that English is his second language, and he may be a spammer trying to hack.
If he is genuine, he is looking for art to buy. (There is an actual Michael Gard - out there who makes wire sculptures)

This year Paper Village at 200 North street will be delivering a number of community events to coincide with the arts trail 2013.
Over the last 6 months we have been working on a hyperbolic crochet reef and underwater woollyy world ...More than 40 people have been involved in making things for the reef at the time of writing this blog. There is still time to be involved.
We are also running a garden gate decorating competition which is free to enter

Hi I have been a member for quite a few years, exhibiting my work at The St John Ambulance Hall on Raleigh Road. Sadly the new manager decided not to continue to offer the hall as a venue for the Art Trail and I now find myself without a place to show my paintings and Recycled Jewellery. So, I am asking please can anyone help with a room for the forthcoming trail, or is anyone knows of a space that can accomodate me? I have my own screens so would not damage walls with nails and pins, and I'm quite well behaved and house trained, well I think so!!

Forms a programme of talks, tours and activities inspired by Real & Imagined Lives Exhibition.
What choices do we have for creating our own identity? Do we create our own identity or is it defined by others? Do artists conceal or reveal their own identity in their work? How much of their own identity do artists impose onto the characters that they create?

Just renewing my annual membership to the trail. Having taken part in the Southbank trail since it's inception, I am happy to report a good year at the trail in 2012 with 5 sales overall and about 200 visitors to my usually quiet venue. Arts trails really are worth doing and feedback from visitors is invaluable. Having rediscovered my blog here, I thought I would advertise my latest exhibition, should any of you be venturing up North during the next couple of weeks:
I am delighted that two of my Uluru paintings have been accepted in the New Visions II exhibition at the Grant Bradley gallery in East Street, Bedminster. This exhibition showcases the work of established and emerging artists in Bristol and is a great mix of different styles, mediums and subject matter. Please do go along and enjoy it.
I attended the very lively private view last evening and was really pleased to see that one of my paintings had sold!
Counting down to doors open on Saturday. 'Market Research' cupcakes went down well at work last week, the big cook happens tomorrow. My Mocktail Cupcakes (non-alcoholic cocktail theme) flavours are: Mojito (Lime cake & Mint Incing), Pina Colada (Coconut cake with Pineapple Icing), Cosmo (Lime & Cranberry cake with Orange Icing), Singapore Sling (Lemon Cake with Pomegranate Icing). If you are exhibiting at the trail and come to see me, you can have a free one! Getting very excited now about the big event.
Remember Axis? It was intended to be a universal directory of artists as well as supplying its artist members with opportunities sent in by visitors. It has un-universalised itself by making half its artists invisible. Read more at: http://www.hanleyexpress.blogspot.co.uk/2012/05/all-about-axis.html
