The Tobacco Factory in Bristol is set to host an exhibition supporting the homeless charity Shelter with work by 100 talented image makers...
If you're in Bristol or its environs between Friday 16 and Sunday 30 November, head over to the Tobacco Factory for a little visual inspiration. The venue is hosting the 100 Houses exhibition, featuring the work of 100 illustrators, artists and designers in support of the homeless charity Shelter.
Curated by character designer Paul Roberts, the show includes contributions from the likes of Gemma Corell, Dawn Cooper, Lee Crutchley, Michael Sieben and Jack Teagle. It's also being supported by members of the Inkygoodness, Drawn in Bristol and Brothers of the Stripe collectives.
Last year, Roberts held a show supporting the Woodland Trust, and this time he wanted to go one further. "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," he explains.
Opening night is Friday 16 November and celebrations kick off at 8pm with DJs Pencilface and Waxmouse. The work exhibited will be available via an online shop from Saturday 1 December for one month only.
