For the film lovers out there you probably already have tickets to this event, the Summer Screen at Somerset House in collaboration with Film4, a magnificent open-air cinema event at a gorgeous location in London this is something not to be missed. Is there any better way to watch films than in the open with a picnic? 
Some of the films being shown include the UK Premiere of Prince Avalanche, a triple bill of Mean Girls/Carrie/The Loved Ones, The Untouchables, Crazy Stupid Love and so many more, there literally is a film for everyone at this event. Running from the 8-12 August, click HERE for more info and to see if you can nab some tickets!

Running alongside the Summer Screen, Film4 and Somerset house have joined forces with Print Club London to host an exhibition of screen printed posters inspired by the films on show.
 Created by some of the most talented illustrators from the UK, USA and Europe there will also be limited runs of the prints signed and available to buy at a mere £40 each! It's a chance to get your hands on some awesome art even if you can't make it to the film screenings. For more information click HERE.

For those of you into Fine Art and local to Bristol, make time to head down to The RWA (Royal West of England Academy) to see Sophie Ryder: Monumental. An exhibition showing a mixture of large scale bronzes to miniature maquettes and sketches this exhibition mixes fact and fiction and proves why Ryder is considered one of the leading sculptors in Britain today. It runs from the 12 June-8 September, click HERE for more info. 

If you're into more contemporary art then a trip to Spike Island is in order. For those of you not familiar with it Spike Island is located in Bristol and plays host to year round exhibitions as well as offering studio space and links with universities, museums and international institutions. It is a real hub of creative energy and Melissa Gordon's exhibition Material Evidence is one of the examples of this. It is her first solo exhibition in a British public gallery and features a new body of work. 
Material Evidence exhibits Gordon's talents as a painter and printmaker and discusses the relationship between representation and abstraction. It covers  few topics and looks very interesting, one to see if only to tick visiting Spike Island off your summer list!
