    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.

    Philippa Hamilton: Textile and Mixed Media Artist: ‘Land and seascapes are constant sources of inspiration for my artwork. They provide places of solace, space for contemplation and immersive experiences in which I am exposed to the changing elements, forces, sounds and scents.  I work with textile materials and mixed media and currently my focus explores the increasing impact and disconnect of humanity with the natural world.’ Contact: instagram.com/pippa_hamilton2

    Martin Hearn. Painter and art tutor: ‘In these recent paintings of Bradford I have made an attempt to reflect my every day experience of the city and to make a record of familiar places and sights. They are an attempt to paint the city in a way that recreates some new aspect of that familiar experience. ‘ Contact: martinhearne.blogspot.com

    Lucia Smith: Painter and print-maker: ‘What a delight to beLucia Smith. Photo of artist paired with Angus Rands!  I believe I follow in his footsteps with a deep love of our glorious local landscapes and the joy of being in the Yorkshire Dales. I love to walk, experience, and savour these places, and try to capture the feeling of ‘being there’ in my paintings.’ Contact: luciasmith.co.uk

    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.”
