Nine: work in progress 

Posted by Alison Pack | 0 comments

You've got a couple of days left to view the exhibition in the old Foyer at Bower - it's a really interesting and diverse range of work in progress by nine MA Graphic Arts students. I really like the laser cut jewellery by Hanna Grech, such as the bird necklace above!

Dr Alyson Hallett: Words in stone 

Posted by Alison Pack | 0 comments
What are the implications of enshrining words in stone and placing the worded stones in a public space where they can interact with space, light and insects?

The PLaCE/LAND2 Speaker Series continues with a seminar by Dr Alyson Hallett entitled Words in stone: Words in space: Stones in Place on Thursday 16 December from 13.00 until 14.30 in Room 0D37 at Bower.

Alyson is poet-in-residence in Exeter University's geography department and her seminar will be an exploration of what happens when a poet begins working with language in 3-D. For more details of her work visit

Everyone welcome!

Design a Gorilla 

Posted by Alison Pack | 0 comments

A mass public art event is coming to Bristol next summer, as part of Bristol Zoo Gardens' 175th Anniversary, and YOU have the chance to get involved by submitting a design.

Wow! Gorillas is a celebration of arts, culture and the environment brought to you by Bristol Zoo Gardens who have collaborated with Wild in Art - the team who brought Go Superlambanana and Go Penguins to Liverpool.

From early July – for ten weeks – a group of gorillas, evocative of fun, creativity and self expression – will form a trail around the cultural and retail quarters, creating a ‘stampede’ to act as the visual centerpiece to highlight Bristol’s extraordinary cultural offer. Wow! Gorillas will also raise significant funds to support gorilla conservation projects and a local Bristol community charity.

Design proposals can be in any art form - from traditional to new media, from sound and video installations to poetry and photography. As well as great publicity there's an honorarium of £800 for commissioned artists. The deadline for submissions is Friday 28 January 2011.
