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.
March and April's exhibition - Spring in Yorkshire
Danny Abrahams is a self-taught Bradford-born artist. He paints predominantly in oils on canvas and his subjects are influenced by the Northern English landscape and nostalgic memories of the past. His popular work is sold at a range of galleries across the UK, has been widely exhibited regionally and elsewhere, and has been featured in the Northern Life magazine.
Catherine Bartle retired from the NHS in 2005 to paint professionally and successfully 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. Contact: wilsdenwatercolours.com
Laura Dawes is a freelance artist, based in Ilkley. Her specialism is 3D video game art, but in recent years Laura has increased her range, using digital painting, ink drawings, gouache, and watercolour, and to develop her interest in pet portraits and landscape art.

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.”
