Bristol has unveiled a new art exhibition that will give people a chance to explore its world-class galleries and museums.
The show is called ‘Art and Culture’ and will be run by the local branch of the National Gallery of Art and the Bristol City Council’s Art Advisory Committee.
It will showcase artwork from artists including John Constable, Michael Kors, Tod Mottet, Richard Leighton, and the late John Firth.
The artworks will be on display at Bristol City Hall from October 13 to 18.
Bristol City Council arts adviser and head of the art advisory committee, Steve O’Brien, said the exhibition was about building trust between the public and the artists and exhibitions should give people the opportunity to see the works of the great artists.
“The exhibition has an element of the past that is very important to the Bristol arts community,” he said.
“It’s not about re-imaging the past but exploring the present.”
Mr O’Brien said the artworks were created by local artists and the public would be able to “walk through” them.
“There’s lots of artwork, there’s lots that have been created, but the exhibition will be about the work that’s been created by Bristol’s great artists,” he explained.
The exhibition, called ‘Bristols best art museum’ is due to open on October 13 at Bristol Art Gallery.
