Every month we invite a guest editor to select our Pick of the Week feature, chosen from the activities listed in our events pages, covering exhibitions and previews, tours, artist talks, workshops, publication launches, open studios, and more from across the region.

We're delighted to welcome artist, and founder and co-director of INDEX Gallery, Gavin McClafferty, as our guest editor this August.

Biog
Gavin McClafferty MA (b.1970, London)
Studied fine art at Wimbledon, Falmouth and Cheltenham. Currently a co-director of the INDEX gallery in Stroud, Gloucestershire which he set up May 2012. Gavin divides his time between his studio, INDEX and freelance writing and curating.

The featured image was taken from a three month residency that developed a process to make and cast iron using discarded and high street materials. The project focused on four sites in south Bristol examining local histories and resources resulting in the striking of an iron coin at each site, performance lecture and film.
