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 has produced a unique piece of artwork specifically for this exhibition, to launch at the vibrant, South Bristol Cafe/Bar, Tobacco Factory in November. Sales from the 100 original pieces of artwork hope to generate a significant contribution to the ongoing work of the charity Shelter in its work to help people find and keep a decent home.
Curator, Paul Roberts, reveals, “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 - each piece is the same 10-inch square size, in order fit all the artwork into the Tobacco Factory. It’s so inspiring that such a wide body of recognized and up-and-coming talent have really pulled out all the stops for this show.”
100 Houses will be opening on November 16th and will be up until the 30th after which work will be put into an online shop for one month only. The Tobacco Factory is open Mon - Thurs 12pm - 11pm, Fri - Sat 12pm - 12am and Sun 10am - 11pm
