ILKLEY-based artists, Kerry J Stoker and Laura Dawes, will be among six local artists with artwork featured on the Big Screen in City Park, Bradford, in a presentation of local artwork, titled ‘Spring 2020’.

The presentation is part of an ongoing project between Silsden resident and art supporter, Colin Neville, who curates the ‘Not Just Hockney’ website, and Bradford UNESCO City of Film, who manage the screen in City Park.

Each day the artwork of six local professional artists is illustrated on the screen in a series of bi-monthly themed presentations.

The ‘Spring 2020’ presentation starts on March 1st and will be shown at 12.30pm each day.

Mr Neville said: “Both Kerry and Laura, along with the four other featured artists, present images of the Spring in their own unique ways and styles.

“I like the way they are not only attracted to the changing colours and forms of nature, but to what the Spring represents, such as ideas of continuity, revival and an awakening of new life.

“The artwork of all six featured artists gives us a real sense what the changing season feels like and means to them all.”

Kerry J Stoker is a painter working and experimenting with a variety of media and style, including collage, and using acrylic, pure pigment, watercolour, oils and collage.

Her paintings have been widely exhibited across Britain, including in London, Liverpool, Bristol, and Sheffield, as well as locally.

Her work has also been selected for the ‘Maze of Colour Exhibition at London’s Oxo Tower Wharfe this Spring.

Her ‘Awakening’ paintings, to be shown on the Big Screen, are also currently on display at the Manor House, Solar Gallery, in Ilkley.

Laura Dawes is a freelance artist, based in Ilkley. Her specialism is 3D video game art, but in recent years Laura has increased her range, using digital painting, ink drawings, gouache, and watercolour. She has exhibited original paintings, prints, cards and other artwork with Ilkley Arts and other related events around the district, and will show her work, along with Kerry Stoker, and other professional artists, at the Silsden Art Show, April 11-13th this year at Silsden Town Hall.

The other Big Screen featured artists are David Starkey from Saltaire, Catherine Bartle from Wilsden, Steven Short from Baildon, and the Bradford-born artist, Danny Abrahams.
