Situated inside The Arcade, Bristol city centre's historic shopping quarter, Gallery du 808 is finally able to open its doors again this month after being closed for more than three months due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Set to reopen to the public on Monday 20 July, Gallery du 808 has been showcasing the very best art Bristol has to offer since 2018, and is now advertising for artists' memberships for 2021.
Revealing the news on Facebook, the Gallery du 808 team say they're finally in a position to reopen "after months of waiting patiently."
A proudly independent art space, Gallery du 808 put emphasis on understanding the artists they work with, and treat their work with the same level of care, attention and respect that goes into the production of each piece.
The gallery team have deliberately set up the space to be warm and inviting, creating a friendly-yet-sophisticated atmosphere.
Voted the Best Art Gallery of the Year 2020 by the Bristol Prestige Awards, Gallery du 808 has become a hub for exciting emerging artists from every corner of the city, hosting eagerly-anticipated exhibitions and events on a regular basis since its launch.
Coinciding with the reopening of the gallery itself, Gallery du 808's membership scheme is now open for 2021. If you'd like to be represented to the gallery next year, and have your work displayed in the gallery and online, find out more and apply here.
Due to open on Monday 20 July, Gallery du 808 becomes the latest outlet to reopen in The Arcade after the shopping centre was able to open its doors again back in June with new social distancing measures.
Several other businesses are now up and running again, including Mabz key cutters, the award-winning Card Shack, Shakeaway, vape retailer Superior Vapour, specialist jewellers Silver Scene and tailors Needle & Thread.
