Now Showing: Home is where the Art is

People bustled in to get a first look at BoConcept's charity exhibition, Home is where the Art is, which opened last Wednesday and continues until Monday 25 August.
The artwork, created by local Bristol artists and makers, was uniquely nestled in amongst comfy sofas and cutting edge homewares, creating a warm atmosphere (which was further enhanced by a plentiful helping of red wine) and bags of excitement for the furniture store's pop-up gallery, which is raising money for Barnardo's Childrens Charity.

Art seekers were enticed into the gallery space by Bristol's own Sennen Timcke, who played beautiful music to passers by, while Jon Footwork brought the place to life with a signature DJ set.
Sophie Rae was on top form with her hand-printed originals inspired by her travels in India and love of natural forms.
The soft grey wall dotted with Katharina Nyilas' natural history artwork brings out the popping colours of her botanical alphabet and animal illustrations perfectly.
George Chislett has added character and flair to his corner of the showroom, with bold animal prints in rich warm tones.
Drawn in Bristol illustrator and maker Paul Roberts also has work on display, alongside fellow Cretin Collective member Dom Williams.
There's still plenty of time to have a gander around the showroom gallery, which is running until Monday 25 August.  Winners of the hand-painted tea light holder raffle will be announced by BoConcept shortly!  Watch this space.
