We get so excited when we see inspirational art and craft, the kind of thing that brings a real joy, and the thrill of actually being able to own something so gorgeous, or so meaningful. Seeing a picture or an object that has been made with such skill, or that embodies a unique expression, can give form to a deep feeling or capture an emotion.
So we wanted to create the Portside Gallery Bristol – a place where the quality of the art counts first and foremost, with an ambition to bring the best possible work to new and established audiences, and with a strong desire to nuture and encourage talent and creativity.
We hope that you will find something special in what we have to offer. Whether that be a bold and beautiful oil painting, a fine porcelain vessel, a tiny hedgerow inspired silver pendant or a simple driftwood cottage… we trust that our artistic heritage and ultimate motivation will show through. Showcasing the fused glass paintings of Jane Reeves alongside a fantastic community of artists and makers from across the country, we endeavour to show work that delights in expressing the joy and beauty that our city, coast and countryside inspire.
