The Searchers contemporary ‘One Year Gallery Project’ was opened in Bristol by practicing artist and exhibition maker Ruth Piper in September 2012. The gallery program focus’s on a rich seam of contemporary art in all its forms, providing a commercial venue with curated shows including 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. Obsessive and curious by nature artists travel alone, searching through unfamiliar territory, hoping for fresh insights & new configurations.
