A LOCAL artist, Julia Keates, of Addingham, is one of six local artists currently featured on Bradford Big Screen, Centenary Square, in a themed presentation of their artwork.

The presentation, depicting images of water, runs daily throughout September and October at 12.30pm each day.

Julia paints in oils, acrylic and mixed media in a variety of styles and scales. Her artwork is often inspired by the shapes, textures and light effects of landscape, including natural water features and has been exhibited across the region, including at the Ilkley Art Show and Art Trail.

Art supporter, Colin Neville, from Silsden, who curates the website Not Just Hockney, organises the bi-monthly displays of local artists’ work on the Big Screen in association with Bradford UNESCO City of Film.

He said: “ I chose water as the theme for a presentation as you can’t go very far locally before you encounter a river, beck or canal.

“It’s not surprising then, that water has been such an inspiration for local artists over the years. Julia’s artwork on the Big Screen is her own unique and creative response to riverside scenes.

“The colours of her paintings are sublime and are shown to great effect on the screen.”

Other local artists with work featured on the screen are Pat Belson, Ian Burdall, Pippa Hamilton, Catherine Slater and Rob Walsh.
