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.

Romanian Lives – An Exhibition about People Like Us.

Exhibition Openng and Charity Fundraiser – Free Entry

Saturday 7th November, 2 – 6pm

Matt Gartside went to Romania in 1992 to produce a folio of images for the charity Jubilee Outreach Yorkshire, to promote the refurbishment of a prison into a hospital.

This if the first time they have been exhibited as a single body of work for over two decades but are as relevant today as they were 24 years ago, perhaps even more so. The people in these photographs are in a foreign land, not long after the fall of the communist dictator Ceaucescu . Some may think that we have nothing in common with people so far away in geography,time and politics. These pictures of grandparents, parents and children powerfully illustrate that this is not the case.

A proportion of the proceeds will be donated to charity, as well as the proceeds from a raffle. First prize will be one of the images from the exhibition, framed and signed by Matt Gartside. Raffle tickets are just £1 each. Either buy at the event, pop into the studio or pledge a ticket by contacting Aly 07773 583072, Matt 07803 151699, or comment below. Thank you.

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!
