North Bristol Art Trail will be celebrating its 10th anniversary when local artists open their doors for the weekend on 26 and 27 November.
Clifton Bridge by Jane Cooper
Featured local artists include Jane Cooper who recently moved to Bristol from London. Jane is third in a family of artists following her mother and grandmother. She generally paints with oils in her studio overlooking Bristol (which you can visit during the arts trail weekend) and has exhibited her work in London, Bath and her family home in Cornwall (Fowey to be precise where she exhibits with her Mum, Julia Cooper).
Having travelled around the world with her work including far-flung corners such as Mongolia and Patagonia, she still finds Bristol a stimulating place to live and paint.
"Strangely, I find a misty morning over the Bristol docks just as inspiring as the Himalayan mountains or a Namibian desert. I think it is the constantly changing atmosphere that makes me want to paint, the movement of light, water and weather".
Jane will displaying some of her latest oil paintings at her home in Cotham along with Jonny Wilkinson and Penny Seume during the arts trail weekend with a preview on Friday 25 November from 7pm. Refreshments will be provided by local business Mullion Cove with their Cornish fairing biscuits.
