The Distant Future Always Sounds Lovely and The Kingfisher Cafe present:

An exciting new collaboration is taking place at the much loved Kingfisher Cafe.

Anna Blightman, (The Distant Future Always Sounds Lovely) will be taking on an artist coordinator role for The Kingfisher, working as an independent to discover and introduce new local artists to the space and its potential.

The collaboration will open doors (and walls) at The Kingfisher to support local artists by offering them a chance to host an exhibition of their work, which will include an exclusive evening opening. The work will then remain on display for the entire month, before the show changes.

Arriving in Fishponds in the summer last year from Berlin, Anna works as an artist using the medium of Polaroid photography showcasing the originality and nostalgia of the classic Polaroid in prints and other gifts.

The new venture with the Kingfisher Cafe, beginning at the end of February, will give the opportunity to all to discover the diverse and accomplished range of artists living and working in Fishponds.

Alongside the main exhibition the project is hoping to include one piece of artwork from up to six artists on a two weekly rotation basis that will also be on display in the cafe and available for purchase. There will also be a stronger focus on products and crafts by local artists being available for purchase, with one area of the cafe dedicated to these items.

For a chance to be involved as an artist please contact Anna Blightman via email at or for the chance to sell products and crafts contact the cafe directly.
