AboutThis December the Synecdoche Art Collective will host their next ambitious show at the Christmas Steps Gallery, Bristol. Following the success of their recent exhibition debut in London, the Bristol-based collective will set up a series of three consecutive exhibitions and a Christmas Shop, selling an eclectic selection of Synecdoche's distinctive, playful and thought-provoking art work to suit every budget and taste.
Opening on Tuesday 2 December and running over four weeks, twenty four emerging artists will exhibit work which pushes the capabilities of a diverse range of media including: paint, print, ceramics, metal and textiles. The Synecdoche artists have all studied Drawing and Applied Arts at UWE, and challenge the perceptions of what it means to draw through extensive explorations with materials and processes. Their work blurs the boundaries between Fine Art and craft by creating intellectual connections between material, process and concept. The exhibition will reflect the name Synecdoche [si-nek-duh-kee]; each art work represents the whole, and the individual pieces would not exist without the influence of the collective.
