The Art Space Windows
204 is no longer running
We had a great run, operating
for over 5 years and showing well over 100 artists, local, national and international, either with single person representations
in the windows or in the space, or through other events like 'ArtNoel" our Christmas shop plus many other events, workshops
Over the years Windows204 helped to stimulate
ideas in a diverse range of people. It was a very popular distraction with young and old alike, who often stopped to
view what was on show, and read the artist statement so they could engage with the ideas being presented more fully.
A bit of history; When Windows 204 began in 2006 there were almost no alternative
art spaces in Bristol. Now in 2012 Bristol has exploded with visible creativity, this has increased how exciting it
is to live and work in Bristol and has also given Bristol an international reputation. All this is partly due to Bristol
City Council having a rates policy that helped to make this possible. I take this opportunity to thank BCC for making
Windows204 possible, and in that way thank them for their support of the MANY people that they have helped to inspire and
progress. I also now solemnly hope that BCC do not stop this support as it will help to keep Bristol a vibrant creative
city even with the biting recession that we are all living with. Artists more than any other group create wonderful
things with almost nothing. All we ask is NOT to be charged for this service which makes good use of, and looks
after, under used or completely empty buildings while bringing life and soul to our streets and to our lives. Artists
make a city exciting and help to build a strong and engaging future - we ALL need that right now more than ever.
Windows 204 is (now was) a space for contemporary art
204 Gloucester road in Bristol.
