Trapezium Gallery Online Gallery And Xmas Exhibition
Bradford's Trapezium Arts' Online Gallery is open to artists from across the Bradford district and is inviting submissions, which will all be considered for a Xmas Open exhibition at Trapezium Gallery on Kirkgate.
Ken Woods of Trapezium Arts said:
"Our gallery on Kirkgate in the centre of Bradford is open again for full exhibitions, but we're still very keen to continue showing art made by local people online. The Online Gallery was so successful over lockdown, many people have asked if they can carry on submitting work. It is ideal for exhibiting one-off pieces of work and digital creations without printing, but includes all sorts of art forms - from drawing and painting to photography, textiles and the crafts. We want people to send us their creative endeavours which we will upload and display for people to go online and view."
This year, Trapezium Arts are launching an exciting annual Open Exhibition at their Gallery on Kirkgate in the run up to Christmas and they will be selecting the entries from all the artwork submitted to the Online Gallery between now and the end of October. All artworks submitted to the online gallery will be considered for the Xmas Open Exhibition, which will be open to the public from Saturday 19th November to Saturday 24th December 2022.
This can be a great opportunity if you are starting out as a creative artist or photographer: Cath Muldowney was a relatively novice photographer who submitted some photographs to Trapezium Online Gallery during lockdown and was later invited to show her work, along with lots of other artists, in the Back to the Wall exhibition at Trapezium Gallery on Kirkgate in May 2021. She has just gone on to hold her first solo exhibition ‘Paradise Street – Under One Sky’ at Trapezium in August 2022.
“Their knowledge, support and advice throughout this journey has been invaluable to me. So go on, submit your work, show your talent and share the word – you never know where this may take you!”

The Online Gallery also has a series of Individual Galleries in which work by a single artist or group can be shown. It is really straightforward to submit work. Lauren, the online curator will guide you through the process if technology puts you off.
Trapezium Arts is a volunteer-run independent contemporary art and photography gallery based at 58 Kirkgate in Bradford city centre. They show art from all walks of life in a welcoming and accessible way.
