Room 212 is a shop and gallery selling art and craft by over 50 Bristol artists. Described as a treasure trove or Aladdin’s Cave, visitors can while away time looking at a huge variety of original paintings, prints, jewellery, cards, gifts and more. Room 212 is based in the Arty section of the popular Gloucester Road, known as Glos Rd Central. This vibrant part of the the longest high street of Independent Shops in Europe, has wide pavements with planters full of flowers and plenty of cafes, restaurants and bars. Room 212 has exhibition space at one of these, a beautiful cocktail bar & gallery called Alchemy 198, which hosts ever changing shows featuring Bristol artists.
Room 212 is at the hub of the North Bristol Art Trail (held during the last weekend of November) and organises events such as the Glos Rd Central Mayfest and Christmas Street Party as well as creative workshops, classes and other activities. Room 212 has regular themes to tie in with the seasons or Bristol events, encouraging artists to produce new work which keeps the shop fresh and vibrant. Artists help to run the shop and so there’s always the opportunity to meet creative people when you visit, and to learn about their creative ideas. Visit Room 212 to get a true sense of the vibrant art scene of Bristol!
