A CAPTIVATING series of photographs on the subject of dreams have been produced by students from Bradford.

Photography students at Bradford School of Art, part of Bradford College, have been capturing dreams as part of a project.

The students, on the Level 3 Photography Diploma course, have produced the work in response to their first project, entitled ‘Dreams’.

Photography tutor Mike Tipping said: “I am really impressed with the work created by the students, especially as they are still only in their first term at college.

“They have produced some very eye-catching and imaginative imagery in response to the theme and learnt a lot about photography techniques and processes too.”

He adds: “Students have used the industry standard photo-studio at college as well as going out on location shoots to explore the theme. And of course, they have used their new-found skills using Photoshop to help create the dream effect needed.

“I am looking forward to seeing how they develop further as photographers over the two years of the course.”

The students’ work will be exhibited, in the Dye House Gallery at Bradford College, alongside work from the Level 3 Art & Design Diploma and Extended Diploma students who were working to the same brief.

This creative space showcases the work of the talented Bradford School of Art students, past and present, as well as some established and emerging artists. The Lister Cafe is located next door and serves hot and cold refreshments, sandwiches and snacks.

*Art lovers can enjoy various exhibitions being held across the district over the coming weeks.

Trapezium Arts in central Bradford is presenting its annual Open Exhibition Winter Wonder Wall, which is being held for its second year at the gallery on Kirkgate, in the run up to Christmas.

The artwork has been selected from creative work submitted over the past year to the Online Gallery on Trapezium’s website at Trapeziumarts.com.

People were asked to send photographs of their creative endeavours and then these were uploaded to virtual galleries, available for all to view all year round.

The free exhibition brings together more than 150 artworks by more than 50 artists and photographers from across the Bradford district with a whole variety of art forms, including drawing, painting, photography, textiles, crafts, 3D and video.

The event is being held up to Saturday December 23 at Trapezium Arts, 58 Kirkgate, Bradford.

Opening Times are Saturday, Tuesday and Friday from 11am to 3pm.

The creativity of 25 artists from across our region is on show in a new exhibition at The Bingley Gallery.

Its Christmas Show is always something special: a selection box of art in different mediums for people to pick their favourites, or try something new.

“Many of our regular exhibitors have prepared new work, some of the highlights of this year’s exhibitions have been brought back and space has been left for new artists whose work has caught my eye,” says the gallery’s director, David Starley.

The varied show is always a treat, with many artists being from the local area.

The free exhibition takes place at The Bingley Gallery, 29B Park Road, Bingley BD16 4BQ, until Sunday December 31. It is open from Thursday to Sunday, 10am to 5pm.

Impressions Gallery is hosting A Wounded Landscape: bearing witness to the Holocaust by Marc Wilson.

The exhibition serves as a visual reminder of the atrocities committed by the Nazis and their collaborators across a vast and varied landscape, where persecution often began in the places the victims called home.

Instigated by his own family history experienced during the Holocaust, Marc documented 130 locations across 20 countries. He has captured the physical remnants of the Holocaust and intertwined them with the deeply personal stories of 22 survivors and their descendants.

A Wounded Landscape is a powerful testament to the indomitable resilience of the human spirit and serves as a compelling call to never forget the horrors that took place.

The free exhibition runs until Saturday February 3 at Impressions Gallery, Centenary Square, Bradford BD1 1SD. Tuesday to Sunday 10am to 5pm; impressions-gallery.com

An exhibition Viewed From A Head In The Clouds, by artist Rose Jollands is taking place at South Square Centre, Thornton.

‘”This exhibition has given me the opportunity to focus on rendering local views and interesting corners. The scenes are from images I take with my phone while out and about, sometimes a nice country walk or just looking up at the sky, it’s all worth recording and valuing,” she says.

Tuesday to Saturday 10.30am to 3pm, Sunday 12 to 3pm. The exhibition runs until Sunday January 28 at South Square Centre, Thornton, Bradford BD13 3LD; southsquarecentre.co.uk
