Jamaica Street Artists return this summer with their Open Studios from 8th – 10th June. Now a firm fixture in Bristol’s cultural calendar, this is a great opportunity to see the 43 artists who are part of JSA. This weekend offers the opportunity to see new work by individual artists, as well as JSA as a collective.
For those of you who have not been to an Open Studio event before; each year JSA opens its studios to the public to show what happens behind its closed doors by allowing everyone to see how our artists work, their art and the chance talk to our artists in person.
Each year we have a Mini Canvas Auction on the Sunday to raise funds for the studio. This year our Mini Canvases will be available to preview on our website before the weekend, but you’ll have to come down in person to bid and win an original piece of art.
A new dimension to this year’s events is the arrival of five artists from Argentina. JSA has extensive relationships with artists and organisations around the world and this year we have decided to highlight one of them as part of the beginning of a series of cultural exchanges. Artists featuring this year are Lucila Bisione, Nicholas Bolasini, Gabriel Gaiman, Francisco Miranda Tooca and Dan Waisman; all handpicked for their distinct flavour.

Opening times: Friday 6-9pm (Private View), Saturday 11-6pm, Sunday 11-4pm with our Mini Canvas Auction on Sunday from 4.30pm.
