We are thrilled to unveil our esteemed Bristol Selection Committee. These members of a globally significant art community set the high standard of the fair, ensuring you can buy from our artists with the confidence that you are investing in the very best of emerging talent.

Our first member of the 2017 selection committee is Liz Gilmore, Director of Jerwood Gallery.

Liz is the founding director of Jerwood Gallery, which opened to the public in Hastings in March 2012. She directs the critically acclaimed exhibition programme at the gallery. Previous exhibitions have showcased work by many British artists including Gillian Ayres, Jake and Dinos Chapman, Marcus Harvey, Rachel Howard, Chantal Joffe, Ansel Krut, Keith Tyson and Rose Wylie.

Previously Liz was Head of Visual Arts for Arts Council England, SE, where she played a key role in nurturing the development of a network of coastal galleries. An art historian and gallery specialist by training, Liz is also an experienced educationalist, university lecturer and cultural consultant, notably working with artists to establish and lead an acclaimed informal learning programme at the National Gallery, London.
