    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.
