Keep Art It Art Exhibition at the Galleries Shopping Centre Bristol 

 

2020 has been a tough year for most people but especially in the arts. Cancelled shows, closed galleries and studios mean a wealth of new works that speak about hope in COVID are desperate to be shared.

Art has the power to uplift, unite and inspire. We need it visible

 

Now more than ever, we must Keep Art It. 

 

The Galleries Shopping Centre in central Bristol and artist/producer Douglas Karson (founder of Art Battle Bristol) are pleased to announce our upcoming Art Trail. Utilising shop fronts in the shopping centre and 6 extraordinary Bristol artists, we will have the ability for audience and artists to see and experience artworks in person in an exciting and dynamic way.

Audiences will be invited to choose their favourite artist through the KeepArtIt website (www.keepartit.org) as a way to engage and participate in the creative process.

 

We hope you can join us to share hope at the Galleries Shopping Centre this holiday season.

Sheroes in Quarantine Part II

Date: 
Wednesday, October 14, 2020

 

ON-ART CREATIVE ARE BACK TO EXPAND ‘SHEROES IN QUARANTINE’ PROJECT WITH THREE NEW TOPICS: WOMEN OF COLOUR, MOTHERHOOD AND MENTAL HEALTH

Sheroes in Quarantine, first launched in May 2020, is an online exhibition dedicated to highlighting women’s* issues and roles during the Covid-19 crisis. 

The project showcases 34 women artists and their respective herstories to uncover the impact that lockdown and isolation have had on artists’ creativity and practice and the risks that the Covid-19 crisis has posed, and continues to do, on women’s lives and their mental health. 

For this edition, we wanted to talk and focus on three specific themes to give visibility to some of the women that have been affected the most by the pandemic: 

Women & Mental Health, Women of Colour and Motherhood.

Join us behind closed doors to discover all the herstories by visiting the online exhibition here.

 

*Sheroes stands for diversity and therefore includes women, trans and gender non-conforming individuals, without them our mission wouldn’t be complete.

With Art Fund support, Sheroes in Quarantine now also includes virtual talks and workshops to bring women together and further the conversation.

Extreme Views - Armchair Walks

Date: 
Wednesday, July 29, 2020

Barrow Park to Lesh Lane

You are invited to join architects, artists, naturalists, and landscape designers on a tour through Barrow-in-Furness, from the comfort of your own home.

Extreme Views Artist in Residence, Owen Griffiths, will host three Extreme Views Armchair Walks. In development since before lockdown, this postponed event is now taking place online in three distinct chapters.

The route will take a tour from the manicured landscape of Barrow Park, through a Green Corridor on the site of the Old Grammar School, leading to an unused suburban green space at Lesh Lane. Each event will be a Zoom online video dialogue, featuring film and images of the route with narration by expert speakers, followed by time for questions or discussion towards the end.

Chapter 1 – Barrow Park, Wednesday 29 July 5:30 – 6:30pm

The first site will focus on civic space, looking at the history and significance of parks, urban landscapes and utopias- as well as the role of civic spaces in the time of COVID-19 and climate crisis. Are these civic spaces a kind of neo-commons, a crucial space to deal with issues of wellbeing and health as well as green pockets which help capture carbon?

With speakers: 

  • Charlie MacKeith – Architect
  • Pete Burton – Naturalist
  • Daisy Froud – Architect & Strategist

Chapter 2 – Green Corridor, Wednesday 5 August 5:30 – 6:30pm

We’ll be looking at the possibilities of the site from a biodiversity and usership perspective, looking at what grows there now – its geological history as once part of the outwash channel.  This site is mixed use but is largely a blank canvas, in need of protection as a significant green corridor and public space.

With speakers:

  • Melissa Appleton – Artist & Producer
  • Pete Burton – Naturalist
  • Vincent Walsh – Ecological Designer & Sustainable Food Specialist

Chapter 3 – Lesh Lane, Wednesday 12 August 5:30 – 6:30pm

The final site is a suburban green space in the midst of a post war housing landscape. The site could be identified as ‘SLOP’ (Space Left Over After Planning), and was earmarked for future development. The site is largely unused by the homes surrounding it, without desire lines or activities taking place. However this site contains a natural wetland which could support a range species and flora and fauna due to the clay content in the soil.

With speakers:

  • John Little – Landscape Designer
  • Pete Burton – Naturalist
  • Stuart Bastik – Artist/Director Art Gene
  • Maddi Nicholson – Artist/Director Art Gene
