AN exhibition by Aire Valley Arts will run from Wednesday, September 1, to Thursday, October 28, at Bradford Cathedral and Kala Sangam Arts Centre.

Sixteen months after the last Artspace exhibition, art is returning to the cathedral with the new exhibition ‘Unfolding’.

Jane Fielder, of Aire Valley Arts, said: “At the start of the pandemic, no-one could have predicted what would happen in 2020 and 2021 and the results of each artist’s journeys were, as then, totally unknown.

“‘Unfolding’ has been created and developed within the constraints and challenges of the last 16 months, a time when normal artistic practices such as meeting together and visiting galleries have largely not been possible.

“For some, this time has been totally oppressive and constraining. For others the space made available by the pandemic has been freeing and enabling.”

Alex Croft, Creative Director at Kala Sangam, said: “We are delighted not only to be working with our neighbours Bradford Cathedral to host our first ever joint exhibition but also that we are supporting local artists at the same time.

“As well as celebrating Aire Valley Artists’ talent, this exhibition is the perfect way to welcome the public back to Kala Sangam and the cathedral, two of Bradford’s best buildings, after such as long time away and we hope that each of our audiences will see it as an opportunity to explore a new space as well as visiting an old friend.”

The opening night of ‘Unfolding’ will be held from 7pm to 9pm on Wednesday, September 1, at Bradford Cathedral and Kala Sangam. To reserve a free place visit

‘Unfolding’ runs from Wednesday, September 1, to Thursday, October 28, and the exhibition can be viewed between 10am and 4pm Mondays to Fridays (except 12noon to 4pm Wednesdays) and from 10am to 2pm Saturdays.
