    Yorkshire Moors and Dales

    Bradford artist, John Allcock, had an academic career at the University of Bradford for over 30 years.  In 2001 he took early retirement to start a new career as a professional artist. Since then his work has been widely exhibited, including at Cartwright Hall.  The artwork shown on the Big Screen is of Almscliff Crag, which John has climbed and painted from all angles and in all seasons. www.artbyallcock.co.uk

     The Wilsden-based artist, Catherine Bartle, retired from the NHS in 2005 to paint professionally under the name ‘Wilsden Watercolours’. Although painting in watercolour for most of her life, retirement gave Catherine the time and opportunity to try other art mediums, including acrylics.  Her work has been exhibited and sold across the Yorkshire region in galleries, art shops, and online through her website.  www.wilsdenwatercolours.com


     Bradford-born, Richard O’Neill is a digital artist specialising in hand-drawn landscapes inspired by classic twentieth century travel art. Yorkshire inspires much of his work, but now also includes locations worldwide, commissioned by a wide range of public and commercial organisations. His work has featured on many book and magazine covers, in promotional videos, and in advertising campaigns. It was also included in the Oxford Art Book (2018). richardoneillart.co.uk

     Lucia Smith is a landscape artist based in Ilkley. Her paintings have been exhibited in UK galleries and overseas in Australia. Lucia also teaches art to students and gives demonstrations and workshops at art clubs and societies throughout Yorkshire. She has set herself the challenge of exploring and painting all the named Dales in the region; three of these Dales paintings are shown on the Big Screen. www.luciasmith.co.uk


    Sharon Snaylam is an Artist and Teacher based in Saltaire and is Artist-in-Residence at Saltaire Primary School. Her work is based on and inspired by journeys through the landscapes of Yorkshire and beyond. She is grateful to her walking companions who accompany her!

    We Are Bradford - Local Stories on the Big Screen

    The BBC are asking people in the city what stories matter to them. The stories featured in We Are Bradford reflect all aspects of the city’s life. Local people want to celebrate the great things about their city which aren't always part of the news. Join in the celebration of Bradford at 11.30am and 2pm daily on the big screen as we show a round-up of the stories from around the city. Here's a taste of what to expect.

    This exhibition is brought to the big screen in partnership with Bradford UNESCO City of Film and BBC Yorkshire.
