Soma opened in Clifton Arcade in June 2004 as a shop and gallery promoting contemporary art, design and illustration. Soma specialises in limited edition prints by illustrators and printmakers and has several exhibitions a year. Alongside the prints Soma sells a wide range of artworks, textiles, jewellery, ceramics, magazines and books.
In September 2010 Soma moved to new premises over the road from the Clifton Arcade space into 4 Boyces Avenue, a larger space with a dedicated gallery space on the first floor and a shop space on the ground floor. The majority of the work on display in Soma is from UK based artists with many coming from Bristol and the South West.

If you wish to submit work for inclusion in exhibitions or for sale in the shop please send us an email with low-res images in jpg format and information about yourself and your work to email@example.com. Please don't send us zip files, exe files or links to external download sites such as YouSendIt as we won't open them. We also prefer to be sent low res images rather than just a link to your site.
Please note: Currently we are not taking on many new artists. Please feel free to send us submissions but we may not be able to respond to all due to the volume we recieve. We do look at every one though.
