24 Jam Pop-up gallery

by Elena Angelides.

The curating and organising team behind 24 Jam are back for a second pop-up art show.

An independent art organisation, 24 Jam aims to give a platform to creatives, to the unlikely and shy whose hidden talents are niggling to surface, to those who want to share what they love making, to the artists who have already had some difficulty navigating the art world.

Back in January, sociology and history of art students Funmibi Ogunlesi and Florence Newton brought the work of artists from Bristol, Bath and London to the R.E. Bucheli Gallery. Affordable art and affordable wine made the opening night a success. Each piece was individually set apart from the others, yet they were held together cohesively in the sense of their standard and quality. Painting, sculpture, photography, short films, visual art and live on-the-night sketches meant that a whole host of forms were presented, and remained exhibited at 12-14 Broad Street over the next five days.

On May 4th, The Island will be made home to a diverse range of mediums and forms made by the talented hands of Bristol’s artists. If you can’t make the opening night, the work will be on show until the 6th.

Photographers, illustrators, sculptors, those of the multi-media or visual arts variety, anyone with a creative outlet who wants to share it: work can be submitted to 24jamgallery@gmail.com by April 20th.
