Just a reminder that we still have the cycling exhibition upstairs at the Bristol shop for another week.

There's loads of photographs, illustrations and even 40 bespoke cycling caps designed by local artists. (These are going to be auctioned off, but more about that later in the week!)

So if you haven't been to see it already, get down to the shop and have a look around.  If you ask nicely we might even put the kettle on!

There will be beer, rum and music, a perfect start to your Friday night out in Brizzle.  Tickets are not required but there will be a bouncer to keep an eye on numbers, so come along early, and if its like today, bring a brolly in case you have to queue in the rain!

Graphic Designers and Illustrators around Bristol have been letting their creativity run wild with Ink Dot’s summer poster show ‘Escape’.  Ink Dot’s ethos is simple, they set a title and a colour pallette and wait to see what poster gems the designers create. The title for the summer project 'Escape' has a colour palette of  light blue, cream, dark blue, red/pink, yellow and green plus black and white.

This Thursday at 7pm we are launching the new exhibition, 'Escape' upstairs  in our gallery so pop along for a drink and to share opinions on the work (the shop will be open for some late night shopping too.) It runs from 17th June until 11th July and features work from more than 30 of Bristol’s most innovative established talent, including pieces by Lorenzo, Peskimo, Dylan Shipley (Sun and Moon Studios, and Bristol's Street Wars team), Ged Palmer, Danny Capozzi, Marcus Walters (New Future Graphics), Ben Steers (Start Gallery), Danny Capozzi as well as featuring work from new up and coming designers.

All Ink Dot prints are for sale as an edition of 50 and are available through www.ink-dot.co.uk. All works are A2 Gieclee posters, printed by Hello Blue from Spike Design. All prints are sold as a limited edition at very affordable prices.

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.
