9th January-4th March – JESSIE WOODWARD

Jessie Woodward at Bocabar poster v1.jpg

Jessie has always been fascinated by abstraction and the concept of spontaneity, a notion formed in the foundations of Abstract Expressionism of the mid 20th century.

Using fluorescent paint, glitter and drawing materials to explore the vibrancy of colour and texture, the process is an intrinsic part of the painting: scratching into paint, drawing with charcoal and graphite, layering and mark making create Jessie’s vividly unique pieces.

Jessie is intrigued by how we respond to painting and aims to explore how pure abstract painting can generate visual energetic joy and pleasure. None of Jessie's works have titles; as soon as you give a piece a title they become something they’re not meant to be and add unnecessary influence to the viewer.

Dal Festival bristol logo.jpg

10th-17th February – THE BRITISH DAL FESTIVAL

Following the success of the inaugural British Dal Festival in Bristol in March 2018 the festival is coming back in 2019 with events and a dal trail across the country.

The second British Dal Festival will run for the week from Sunday 10th February 2019, expected to be designated by the United Nations as the first ever World Pulse Day in recognition of the contribution pulses make to health, nutrition, food security, biodiversity and fighting climate change.

The festival’s Dal Trail will see eateries across the country bringing pulses to the fore and shining a spotlight on their magic, by offering at least one dal or other dish of beans, peas, lentils or chickpeas through the week. It’s the perfect opportunity to enjoy favourite dals and to try less familiar pulse dishes from the fava dip of the Greek island of Santorini to traditional British parched peas.

While highlighting the myriad ways that pulses are cooked around the world, the festival seeks to go  beyond simple indulgence in delicious dishes, raising the profile of pulses and increasing awareness of their benefits.   As a plant-based source of protein and other nutrients, pulses provide an immediate opportunity to reduce meat consumption and the impact of our diets on resources and climate change.
