ANNIE HARRISON & BOB GAUNT

Culture Walk

Art historian Bob Gaunt and Northlight artist Annie Harrison present their new project, a walk along

rivers and canals from Liverpool to Hull, to explore the legacies of these ‘cities of culture’.  

With a special interest in participation and access to the arts, Annie and Bob will be inviting the

audience to join the discussion about the importance of culture for all.

 

SIMON MANFIELD

Space and Solidarity 

Simon Manfield talks about his remarkable recent drawings and illustrations.

“Themes of memory, place and time run through my arts practice. The work I will speak about

represents, in visual terms, two related motifs that weave between those themes: space, an

adorned or unadorned distance present in the compositions, and the solidarity of the communities

I portray. Both inform the cycle of everyday life, both extraordinary and mundane.”

 

MARTIN HEARNE

‘The people in these paintings are closer than they appear’

Travelling along the same Bradford streets every day, Marti Hearne’s paintings reflect that

experience.  The results are paintings about Bradford that are both familiar and personal,

inventive and moving. Hearne’s career has taken him from painting to ceramics

(teaching ceramics at Bradford College) and now back to painting.

THE HAPPY WEDNESDAYS     COLOUR IN THE VALLEY  

A group of painters who met at Northlight Art School’s Wednesday “Painting towards Abstraction” class  led by

Dominic Vince.

These talented artists have explored forms drawn from the visible and invisible world, using shapes, colour and gestural marks to create expressive and abstract artworks. They have remained free of representational restraints and taken each painting on a journey, aiming to express their own thoughts
