STUNNING stained glass and a punk wall mural are among the artworks hitting Bradford’s big screen in July as part of a continuing exhibition showcasing work from local artists.

The Not Just Hockney exhibition was set up to provide outdoor gallery space to artists.

A different show of artwork runs each month.

Images of the work are screened daily in City Park, focusing on five different artists each month.

It is supported by Bradford City of Film, which runs the big screen and its contents.

The project is curated by arts enthusiast Colin Neville to promote local artists.

He said: “Peter Massey, north director for the Arts Council England said recently ‘Bradford is a city with a heck of a lot going for it. It has an incredibly rich cultural heritage as well as a vibrant and diverse contemporary cultural scene.’

“He certainly got that right.

“The visual artists featured on the Big Screen each month are living evidence of the talent and creativity in the district.

“This month we have an award winning graphic designer, a stained glass artist and designer at the top of her game, a jewellery designer, and two painters, both with their own distinctive styles.

“There’s some great artwork on display for all to see.”

Mr Neville said the aim of Not Just Hockney is to promote local artists generally.

“Artists have to spend a great deal of time and energy promoting their work,” he added.

“It’s not easy, and marketing strategies – and coping with rejection – should be on the formal curriculum in more art schools.

“Being featured on the Bradford big screen is a big boost to their morale.”

David Wilson, director of Bradford UNESCO City of Film said: “We’re really excited about this month’s exhibition as there is some really interesting and diverse work - from the majesty of Jude Tarrant’s stained glass to the fantastic work of Ben Tallon, a local graphic designer and illustrator.”

The five artists for July are:

Steven Short, who has worked locally in the social housing field for more than 30 years. However, in recent years he has also established himself as a self-taught artist. His artwork has been exhibited locally and he has sold pieces in the UK and internationally. Two of his works were selected for the Shipley-based Cellar Trust for their Christmas cards in 2016.

Kerry Stoker, a painter who works from her studio in Ilkley. She paints mainly with acrylic, but also in oil, watercolour and oil pastel. Her work regularly features at the Ilkley Art Trail and she has also exhibited at the Saltaire Arts Trail, Yorkshire Watercolour Society, Society of British Artists, Society of Women Artists in London, and at Art for Youth exhibitions in London, Sheffield and North Yorkshire.

Ben Tallon, who was born in Keighley. He is a freelance graphic designer and illustrator and is the creative director at Quenched Music. His clients have included The Guardian and The Times newspapers, Manchester United Football Club, UEFA Champions League, and The Big Issue. In 2015 Ben won the title Creative Agency of the Year at the inaugural Dot London Small Business Awards.

Jude Tarrant, a stained glass artist, glass painter and designer maker. She grew up in Eccleshill and now works from a studio and showroom, Sunrise Stained Glass, near Portsmouth. Jude works on her own designs and commissions and has worked in a team on many restoration projects in churches and cathedrals. She is an elected Associate of the British Society of Master Glass Painters.

Charlotte Whitmore, who designs and makes mixed-media jewellery from her workshop in Saltaire. She works predominantly in silver, but incorporates other materials, such as vintage plastics and Czech glass, to add colour to the jewellery. She has exhibited and sold her work at venues across England, including at the Great Northern Contemporary Fair, Saltaire Arts Trail, and Contemporary Craft Fair, Bovey Tracey, Devon.

Images of all five artists’ work are being shown on the big screen every day in July at 12.30pm.
