More Waves and Ripples

A second chance to catch the show at Studio22B

We had a great time at Artsmill and were sad to leave. Invigilating the exhibition and talking to visitors about our work was both interesting and motivating. We got really good feedback and comments which has given us a boost and a positive start to 2016.

Our pictures (minus sold pieces!) are now back ‘home’ at 22B and we will be hanging them over the next week, to open on Thursday 25th February at our usual time of 2-6pm.

A Virtual Tour of 22B

The new gallery at Studio22B has been open for a few weeks now. Quite a few of you have called in to see us. If you haven’t been able to here’s a taster of what you’ll find. We are open Tuesday to Saturday 12.30pm to 5.30pm.

Come to The Grand Opening of the new studio and gallery.

Gallery setting

SUNDAY 19th JULY 12-6PM  AND THURSDAY 23rd JULY 6-10PM

Our new space is nearly ready and pretty spiffy its looking too. Come and marvel at it this weekend, chat to the artists, have a drink and slice of cake. The walls and floors are painted (you can see what fun Aly had below!) and the all important lighting, designed by Matt, has lit up Soughbridge Mill. Then all we have to do is hang some pictures and set up the Darkside Photography studio. Aly is already installed in her painting studio annexe, which will also be open to view.

We have two dates to choose from, Sunday daytime or Thursday evening. On the Thursday evening Matt will be running a photography workshop (portraits) which you are welcome to observe. To join in the workshop properly, please follow the link to book. Aly will be on hand for chats and tea making.

There will be original artworks, prints and cards by painter ACTelfer and photographer Matt Gartside of Darkside Photography

SAVE THE DATE! Workshop and Special Events at 22B.

    We are moving – but only down the corridor. This will be your first opportunity to see our new space – or rather spaces as Aly has a separate space for gloriously messy painting in splendid solitude and Matt has a pristine photography studio which will also be a gallery for both of us and maybe other artists in the future.

The Drawing Office

Here’s our studio half a century ago when it was the drawing office of Bristol Tractors. That’s half a century of pencil wielding at 22B. Come and see how things have changed by popping into the studio. You can come to a workshop, Open Studio, exhibition or just call in. If the A board is out we are open!
