iew Art Gallery, an innovative contemporary art gallery in Bristol’s harbourside, is opening two new exciting and diverse exhibitions for the


summer. In the Summer Salon show we can see a variety of styles and mediums from new and established artists, each capturing the feel of summer in their own unique way. This is followed by a student exhibition, First Impressions, where some of the most promising young artists in the South West have the opportunity to experience being a commercial artist and win a lucrative prize.


‘Summer Salon’ This dynamic and vibrant exhibition is full of bright colours and high-impact aesthetic quality underpinned by layers of ‘thought’. The exhibition has the feel of an art fair, where the art is changing frequently, with new artists being introduced throughout the show. Unlike other exhibitions at View, if a piece sells then it is removed straight away and replaced with something new. This opens up the opportunity for experimentation and variety and keeps it fresh for regular visitors. As well as some beautiful paintings,

the show has sculptures that can be placed inside or outside, interactive art where the viewer can create their own version of a piece, and a large wall installation. Summer Salon is playtime for both visitors and curators!


‘First Impressions’ On August 29, View welcomes the best young local talent in the South West for the second annual student exhibition, First Impressions 2013. Over the past few months, submissions have been received from local artists looking to have their first experience in a commercial gallery. View are keen to promote the local art scene


BOTH NEW AND ESTABLISHED ARTISTS SHOWCASE THEIR WORK AT VIEW ART GALLERY THIS MONTH


and to present young and aspiring talented artists with the opportunity to experience the exhibition process, from submitting their work through to, hopefully, the sale. Last year’s winner, Jess Oag-Cooper is featuring in the Summer Salon exhibition alongside seasoned professional artists. Last summer saw the pioneering exhibition


of First Impressions, and the quality and creativity of the artwork was outstanding. This year raises the bar even higher, with double the submissions and many more participating schools and colleges. It’s well worth a visit to see the potential stars of the future at the very early stages of their art careers. CL


Summer Salon runs through to August 25th


First Impressions runs from August 29th to September 15th
