BANKSY EXHIBITION





















Hubby and I spent a very interesting day at the Bristol museum, as Bristol is barely an hour away from us, we really felt that we could not miss the Banksy Exhibition, especially as we have seen and heard so much of the hype surrounding it!
After queuing for over two hours, we decided to have some lunch before browsing the museum (I am ashamed to say it is the first time we have visited it) and enjoyed many of the exhibits that are on display in addition to Banksy. Some very beautiful traditional paintings including some pre-Raphaelite work (my favorite along with art Nouveau/Deco) Paintings by local artists, as well as Ceramics, pottery, glass, Egyptian carvings, sarcophagus's, Dinosaur fossils, wildlife etc

I'm not a huge Banksy fan, highly overrated in my opinion, but this exhibit does look interesting.

Have to agree with you Jennifer, and the visit has done nothing to change my opinion, I did enjoy seeing it though and the other exhibits also made it well worth the visit ;-) I do think the Promotion of the exhibition is excellent though, If only I could command that sort of audience !!!!!
