Artist, Samantha Gilraine came in yesterday to refresh our Staircase Gallery in the Bristol shop.
Samantha is a Bristol based artist and photographer who merges traditional painting and digital photography.
"My aim when creating artwork is not to just recreate what a landscape looks like, but the real experience and feeling of being within a landscape. "
Pop by to see Samantha's work over the next few weeks.
We also have a selection of greetings cards on sale of Samantha's work if you would like to take a smaller version home with you.
For anyone thinking about making a trip into London and visiting us on Carnaby Street over the next couple of weeks, this is well worth a visit...
Launching on Friday 26th February, ‘Carnaby Street: 1960 - 2010’ will celebrate 50 years of fashion and music.
The central feature of the show is a unique 3D timeline which illustrates key people, events and happenings in the area from being a green field site with a well and a scarecrow 500 years ago, to the iconic characters associated with Carnaby’s music heritage such as The Rolling Stones, Sex Pistols and Jimi Hendrix.
A limited edition book of the same title; ‘Carnaby Street: 1960 - 2010’ will support the exhibition and will feature images from ‘60s photographer Philip Townsend and exclusive interviews with people who have lived and worked in Carnaby including The Who’s Pete Townsend.
The exhibition and book are the work of acclaimed curators and fashion historians Judith Clark and Amy de la Haye, who have curated exhibitions at major international museums including the V&A and Mode Museum in Antwerp.
The exhibition, 38 Carnaby Street, will be open from 26th February until the beginning of April 2010 and is FREE admission. It will be followed by a series of events throughout 2010 to celebrate Carnaby’s 50th Anniversary including a live music weekend in June and a unique fashion show in September.
Open 7 days a week
Monday - Saturday: 11am - 6pm
Sunday: 12noon - 6pm
38 Carnaby Street
Took this one on the last photo shoot up in the hills. Can't get hold of Sx70 film anymore and if I can I can't afford it so I've started using 600 and 780 as its a bit more available. I was worried that it would look all fresh and new but its not too bad really, suppose using an old camera helps. I think this was on 780.
The majority of our Spring catalogues have been posted out now. If you enjoyed our reading about the tales of our Ancestors Patagonian-Pioneering- Adventures, then head over to our flickr to see more of the images from our adventures.
The gallery contains James Bowden’s photos. All shot on film with either a Rollei 35 or a Hasselblaad 501CM.
If you find flickr slow and ugly I Hardly Know Her provides a much better visual experience.
Also James has a photo set of all his Hasselblaad portraits here.
