Above Bristol: Topographies and Landscapes @ The Gallery Space // Thurs 6th – Tues 11th Aug (3 & 8pm) // Cost: Free
Ever wondered what Bristol looks like from a balloon? Ever wondered what it feels like to peacefully drift above the city, and look down at the people below? Above Bristol sent local artists on a hot air balloon flight over the city and asked them to create a piece of art in response to their experiences, focussing on the theme ‘Topographies and Landscapes’.

We would like to invite you to the Private View on 5th August 2014 from 6-8pm at The Gallery Space, Hamilton House, Stokes Croft, Bristol. Drinks and nibbles provided.

Featuring work from: Laura Hopes, Joshua Ward, Andrew Bill, Sarah Laver, Isabel Galleymore and ana v.
