We’ve had an amazing quantity of high quality art come our way over the last week, with over 300 entries to the competition. Unfortunately, we couldn’t display all of the artwork entered into the competition, but a shortlisted selection of 50 adult’s entries and 21 children’s entries are on display all week in a pop up gallery for the public to view and vote in person.
Come along and say hello at the Christmas Steps Gallery, but please do check our Twitter page to check that we’re open – @BristolPound
This year our four themes are:
- Art and Culture – Renowned for its music, visual and performing arts, festivals and even its graffiti, Bristol has a well-earned reputation for homegrown talent and a welcoming and enthusiastic audience.
- Rebellion and protest movements – Bristol has a fiercely independent spirit, and a long history of doing things its own way. We’ve pushed back and won; We even have our own money! Let’s celebrate this.
- Wildlife & nature – Bristol has fantastic green spaces, abundant urban wildlife, interesting schemes to reduce pollution and waste and a real appreciation of our environment. What image would capture these qualities?
- Maritime Heritage – Bristol is built around its docks and has always looked towards the sea for trade and friendship. From John Cabot discovering North America, to the horrors of the slave trade, to Brunel’s SS Great Britain, the sinews of the City are tied up with the sea. Help us find an image to reflect this.
