Description


40th Anniversary Exhibition

November 18th - 22nd 2017

Open daily: 10 - 6

Preview: 6 - 9 Saturday 18th November.



Centrespace Studios & Gallery is proud to present their 40th anniversary exhibition that will take place from 18th of November. Celebrating 40 years as a co-operative providing 30 low cost studios and workshops. Located in Leonard Lane, in the medieval part of Bristol city centre, the organisation is unique in the region for its continued self sufficiency and independence. In 2000, the Centrespace Gallery was fitted out and runs as a not for profit affordable exhibition space for hire.


More than 200 skilled artists, designers and makers since 1977 have worked in the building and been active members of the co-operative.
This exhibition is a rare opportunity for visitors to observe and experience the wealth and diversity of the professional talent that Centrespace continues to nurture as well an insight into the complexities and challenges of running a creative organisation.


The event profiles the work of the current membership, including award winning contemporary craft, glass, ceramics, illustration, graphic design, traditional upholstery, printmaking, animation, fine art, environmental architectural design and much more.

Recent artists’ collaborations with local historical organisations produced two beautifully illustrated guides to the Old City and inspired an Arts Council funded artists’ residency in the gallery during 2015. The event will also present archive images of the building which was originally known as Bristol Craft Centre, past events there and members at work
