The Searchers – Visual Artists
An exhibition of painting, drawing, sculpture, photography & film.

8 artists present new work suggesting very different individual propositions.
The Searchers began as a one year pop up gallery project in Bristol in 2012. After eleven curated shows they moved on from the gallery space at St Michaels Hill and are now a roaming group of artists, who support and challenge each other in their individual practices, with studio visits, shared experiences and critical discussion.

An informal conversation with the artists led by Lizzie Lloyd
With Tea & Cake – £3.00 donation
