New Contemporaries I, The Bristol Gallery

Having opened its doors to critical acclaim with their inaugural exhibition, Myth and History in September 2009, The Bristol Gallery is now pleased to present New Contemporaries I. The Bristol Gallery's latest exhibition features the best and the brightest emerging contemporary artists, brought together for the first time at our premises on Bristol's prestigious Harbourside development. The show explores new parameters and directions, bringing a diverse range of talent and experience to new audiences in the region. The exhibition acts as site for unusual and exciting discoveries, promoting and creating access to vibrant contemporary visual art with a lively assembly of artists working in a range of media including photographs, textiles, abstracts, video, installation and sculpture.

We are proud to present works by Arno, Jan Lewin-Cadogan, Rakhee, Nicola Dale, Cordelia Spalding, Katharine Barker, Paul Wright, Fran Richardson, Alison Black, Susan Bowman, Peter Walker, Michelle Lord and Helen Grundy at affordable prices ranging from £150.00 - £15,000.00.

The exhibition runs from Saturday 7th November 2009 – Thursday 7th January 2010.

New Contemporaries I aims to show new and exciting art that engages the viewer in both looking at and thinking about the art on display; with this in mind The Bristol Gallery has carefully selected artworks to provide broad scope and multiple possibilities for visual interpretation and impact for audiences and collectors throughout the region.
