A HAWORTH artist whose work featured in a gallery's debut exhibition is returning to the venue to stage another display.

Land/Marks, by Bill Parker, opens on Saturday, September 9, at Trapezium Gallery, Bradford.

The launch event, between noon and 4pm, is also a celebration of the venue's fifth anniversary.

Pauline Cooke, for the gallery, says: "Bill is an old friend of Trapezium.

"We selected his work to be part of Water, Structure and Life, our very first exhibition in September, 2018. It seems apt that he is returning to the gallery on our fifth anniversary with a full exhibition of his remarkable paintings."

Using a range of techniques, Bill – a studio holder at Keighley Creative – draws inspiration for his work from the area's landscape.

He says: "My most recent paintings – while diverse in outcomes – are the result of daily walks and experiences on the moors above Haworth, famed as the countryside in Wuthering Heights.

"Created in all weathers and seasons, they're the result of a daily studio session following each excursion.

"Using a visual record, memory and transcription of scenes, the resulting paintings are a personal expression of the fleeting light and colours and forever-changing moods and atmospheres of the moorlands. The notes may change, but the song remains the same!

"This exhibition at Trapezium Gallery is a special opportunity to show my new paintings of the local landscape, in a vibrant and accessible space."

Since the gallery opened, it has produced or hosted over 40 exhibitions.

The venue is run entirely by volunteers on a not-for-profit basis.

Pauline, who is amongst its founding members, says: "It all started with an impulsive idea to run an art gallery and here we are five years on and still going strong – as enthusiastic and full of ideas as ever!

"We have a great team of people involved in running things and a fantastic audience which visits regularly.

"It's our aim to present art in a welcoming and accessible way.

"We hope people will come and join us for the launch of Bill's beautiful paintings and to help us celebrate the gallery reaching its fifth birthday."

The event includes refreshments and a chance to meet the artist.
