An exhibition of work by Dorothy Bradford, official artist to the Leeds Pianoforte Competition in 1975, is on show in the foyer of the Clothworkers Centenary Concert Hall and the school of music. Bradford’s paintings are energetic, colourful images of musicians at work, which capture both the movement of the artists and music itself. Her life and work is the subject of a recent book by Mary Sara, which can be purchased from the school of music. Pictured is ‘Double Bass’, an oil on canvas from 2001. The exhibition runs until October 31.
