The Searchers exhibition space was opened by practicing artist and curator Ruth Piper in 2012. The gallery program introduces the public to a rich seam of contemporary art in all its forms. Curated shows include artists from Bristol and London. In particular those whose work side steps fashion and conveys a deeply felt personal engagement with their materials and subject matter.
It was John Ford’s classic western ‘The Searchers’ that inspired the title for the gallery, because all artists are conducting a search. Obsessive and curious by nature they travel alone through unfamiliar territory, hoping for fresh insights & new configurations.
