NOT JUST HOCKNEY
AN EXCITING 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 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.
September and October's exhibition - Land and Sea
Jacky Al-Samarraie is a graphic designer and founder of The Art Rooms in Saltaire, where she designs a wide range of prints, cards, stationery, and homeware. Her distinctive landscape designs are characterised by silhouettes of trees, people, or man-made features juxtaposed with blocks of colour. Jacky also organises and teaches on printmaking workshops at her studio in Saltaire.
Allan Brack lives locally with his partner and fellow artist, Mandy Farrar. The sea is a recurring theme in Allan’s work and his recent paintings have been inspired and taken their titles from the poetry and lyrics of Leonard Cohen. Allan’s artwork has been exhibited regionally, including at the University of Bradford, and the Joseph Rowntree Trust Headquarters, who also purchased Allan’s work for their permanent collection.

The local artist, Martin Cosgrove, originally studied medicine and trained and worked as a doctor. However, after he retired he studied fine art and printing and now draws predominantly with charcoal and pencil, and paints, mainly in oils, in an expressive, often abstract way. He has had solo exhibitions in Cambridge, Essex and in Yorkshire, including a ‘Fresh Horizons’ show of abstract landscapes at Bradford Cathedral in 2019.
Clare Haley was born in Bradford. She worked for Hallmark Cards in a range of creative roles, but become a full-time freelance artist in 2010. Her current work is inspired by the landscape and big skies of northern England, particularly Yorkshire, and her paintings have now been widely exhibited, including at the Great North Show, as well as in a range of regional galleries.
Sarah Harris is a screen print artist from Shipley. In 2013 Sarah won the Curzon Exhibition Award at the ‘New Lights’ art prize for artists from Northern England, which led to a solo show in Ripon. Sarah’s work has since been exhibited widely across the region, including solo shows at Cartwright Hall and Bradford Cathedral. She also leads workshops in printing techniques, including screen-printing. Contact: sarahharrisprints.co.uk
Greg Learmonth is a largely self-taught professional painter, living in the Ilkley area. His subjects, although including townscape and still life, are predominantly of landscape and coastal scenes, particularly of the Yorkshire region. He is the Chair and Treasurer of the Burley-in-Wharfedale Art Club and exhibits his impressionistic artwork at venues across the region, including regular solo shows at Burley-in-Wharfedale.
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. Six different artists will feature bi-monthly. For more see http://www.notjusthockney.info/
