A Day Out in Bristol

Art, Ceramics, Exhibition, public Art

P_20150730_142620On Thursday I went to Bristol for the afternoon, to activate my account for working as a film and TV extra and to go art-hunting. I’m not a city person so having navigated the Bath Road Park & Ride for the first time, I stuck to areas I already knew. First stop, Bristol City Museum and Art Gallery. I managed to limit myself to only one photograph of the many Sean the Sheep manifestations…

and of course the Banksy which he donated to the gallery after his hugely popular exhibition there.

Then I went to view the new Do Ho Suh work, on its world tour.

 

 

 

 

 

It has a small gallery room all to itself and a very enthusiastic gallery attendant, plus information panels.

I found it strangely moving – we were invited to walk through as long as we didn’t touch. The attention to detail was fabulous.

I also called in the Red Lodge Museum for another look at the glorious Tudor interior upstairs,

I called in a few small art galleries along Park Road, and was delighted to find the work of Linda Brogan at Potters. Look, she makes heads too!
