NOT JUST HOCKNEY
AN EXCITING NEW EXHIBITION ON BRADFORD BIG SCREEN SHARING THE WORK OF HUNDREDS OF ARTISTS FROM ACROSS THE DISTRICT WITH VISITORS TO THE CITY. ON THE SCREEN EVERY DAY AT 1230
Not Just Hockney is the brainchild of amateur arts enthusiast Colin Neville. The monthly exhibition features work from painters, ceramists, textile and jewellery makers. Artists involved say the project gives them vital outdoor “gallery” space after harsh economic times have seen many local galleries closing. If you can't get down to the screen watch the exhibition here.

Jenny Tribillon is a window and mural artist. She came to England from France over 10 years ago and now lives in the Shipley area. Her window painting for shops and other buildings is the main focus of her work, although she also paints wall murals and supports children in local schools with art projects. Seasonal scenes, including Christmas, are a feature of her window paintings.
Bradford UNESCO City of Film, David Wilson said: “Some of the artists we are working with are well known but others are not and so we’re delighted to be supporting local creativity. The images and photographs of the work are stunning and will no doubt draw some real attention in City Park.”
Not Just Hockney will run every day at 1230 on Bradford Big Screen. Five different artists will feature bi-monthly. For more see http://www.notjusthockney.info/
