Show us your prints!

As part of our next show in October we will be dedicating a large space to prints. This is partly to provide another price dimension for our customers, to compliment the show's original art, and also for when we take part in the West Bristol Art Trail.

So, artists, if you would like to be considered for this space in our October show please do the following:

1. Register as an artist on our website.
2. Send us images of 2 prints, with dimensions and the price you would like to receive (we'll add the commission), by email to

If your work is selected it will either be exhibited on the gallery wall (if framed), or in a print rack. We will start looking at the submissions this week and give you feedback within a few days.

We look forward to seeing some new and different prints.

The second of our Summer shows is almost ready to go and promises to be an original and innovative collection of work. The show involves 11 artists who have been brought together by artist and curator Jesse Leroy Smith (who is exhibiting in both of our Summer shows). SuperNature is being shown at View as its first venue before being taken on an international tour next year. Have a look at images of some of work.

The common theme is the landscape, but the interpretations are extreme, as are the media used. Exploring new techniques with traditional media and introducing new media is a passion of ours at View and so we are delighted to show a group of artists with such diversity. Photography techniques include pinhole, Polaroid and digital, colour is presented with oils, ink and biro, and installations involve a wide mix of media.

Inviting a variety of emotional responses is something we are also enthused about at View. With SuperNature we aim to create a range of reactions from calm and serenity to wonder and intrigue and maybe admiration of technical excellence. As ever, we hope there is something for everyone.

The artists connection is through Jesse and his Revolver movement - a collection of artists who have a Cornish influence, either by birth, residency, or a love of the physical and social environment. The full list of artists is available here. You can meet the artists at our Private View on August 13th, so if you're not yet on our mailing list, register now to receive an invitation.

The show runs from August 12th to September 27th. We look forward to seeing you there.
