original art

Loves encourages local art and culture, and helps to nurture the growth of local artists by displaying their work in our Gallery area – situated on the open plan first floor. All pieces are available to purchase, and all monies from any art we sell are passed on directly to the artists.

From prints to oil paintings, sculpture to photography, all styles, genres and materials are encouraged and welcomed.

So far, we’ve displayed abstract prints of Lego figures, traditional oils, Graffiti-Based art and some fantastic photography – We’re always looking for new and fresh ideas and concepts.

If you wish to purchase anything on display, please do speak to any member of staff who will be glad to help you select the right piece for your setting, and will arrange for prints to be ordered if appropriate, and for the Artist to be paid.

If you are an artist, and wish for your work to be displayed, please e-mail us at anna@lovesweston.co.uk  with a sample of your work, contact details, and a couple of paragraphs to explain why your work should be displayed in the Café.


Exhibiting artists this month

Tracy Horstead BA (Hons) Applied Art

Tracy Horstead is a multi media artist and has in the past concentrated on 3D installations from a feminist point of view; work on exhibition however shows a different side to her, using fine-line permanent black ink markers, and using simplified imagery to control the organic nature of the subject brings an order to the chaos of the natural world, the black lines in high contrast to the bright white paper has a calming and therapeutic aesthetic pleasure to the viewer.

Bliss Horstead

Bliss Horstead is a young artist currently studying at Weston super mare’s University Campus; her water colour work on exhibition is inspired by the artist Marion Bolognesi and shows a romantic and engaging moodiness but sometimes with a modern twist – facial piercings. The drips and blots along with the unfinished look of some of the paintings, give the viewer an insight into the observation on human emotions that this young artist puts into her work.

Maxwell Horstead

Maxwell Horstead is a Graphic Designer currently studying at Swansea Metropolitan University whose home town is Weston-Super-Mare. He has an interest in a variety of art forms and the selection of work on show is a collection of images that stem from design projects and client briefs, he tackles these with a keen eye for a fresh modern approach even though he may use the past to inform his art – Shakespearian plays and diversely, scientific symbols

Samantha Jones

Photographer Samantha Jones is currently studying at Swansea Metropolitan University but whose home town is Weston-Super-Mare; she is interested in many types of photography as both art form and commercial practice. The images on display show Samantha’s passion for her observations on coastal and city lifestyles, and the other side of her work tells the story of how shadow and light play on the subject captured in the lens of her camera
