2020 has been a tough year for most people but especially in the arts. Cancelled shows, closed galleries and studios mean a wealth of new works that speak about hope in COVID are desperate to be shared. Art has the power to uplift, unite and inspire. We need it visible

Now more than ever, we must Keep Art It.

The Galleries Shopping Centre in central Bristol and artist/producer Douglas Karson (founder of Art Battle Bristol) are pleased to announce our upcoming Art Trail. Utilising shop fronts in the shopping centre and 6 extraordinary Bristol artists, we will have the ability for audience and artists to see and experience artworks in person in an exciting and dynamic way. Audiences will be invited to choose their favourite artist through the KeepArtIt website ( as a way to engage and participate in the creative process.

We hope you can join us to share hope at the Galleries Shopping Centre this holiday season.
