‘100 Houses‘ brings together 100 national and international image-makers from illustrators to street artists in support of housing and homelessness charity Shelter. Given the theme of “house” each artist will produce a unique piece of artwork specifically for this exhibition, culminating in an exhibition launch at the vibrant, South Bristol Cafe/Bar the Tobacco Factory in November. Each piece of artwork will be for sale, with a percentage of the profits going directly to Shelter. It is hoped that the project will generate a significant amount to support the ongoing work of the charity Shelter in its work and support for the homeless.
Curator & illustrator Paul Roberts, told us “After hosting a group show last year supporting ‘The Woodland Trust’, I wanted to go bigger and see what would happen if I attempted to pull together 100 artists to make a difference with their art. I’ve been blown away by the artwork being sent to me from near and far – a wide body of recognized and up-and-coming talent have really pulled out all the stops for this show – it’s really inspiring.”
Just some of the confirmed artists include: Jon Boam, Lee Crutchley, Jack Teagle, Ferris Plock, Kelly Tunstall, Matt ‘Lunartik’ Jones and Michael Sieben, alongside members of Brothers of the Stripe, Drawn in Bristol & Inkygoodness.
100 Houses opens on November 16th and runs until November 30th. Artworks not sold during the show will be posted for online sale for one month only! More details coming soon.
The Tobacco Factory is open Mon – Thurs 12pm – 11pm, Fri – Sat 12pm – 12am and Sun 10am – 11pm. A website dedicated to the project will launch in October, featuring a gallery of artworks and links to all participating artists.
