ANNIE HARRISON & BOB GAUNT
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.
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.”
‘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.
We present short exhibitions that dovetail aroiund our course programme
