Gallery offers visitors chance to get stuck into graduates' glue art

Robert Sutcliffe
A HUGE dripping glue wall and window hangings in vivid oranges and reds have been specially commissioned for a leading art gallery in Bradford.
Its creator, Manchester Met graduate Clare Knox-Bentham, has been selected by Kath Libbert of the Kath Libbert Jewellery Gallery at Salts Mill to forBright/Light -An Exhibition of Contrasts introducing work by 12 graduates.
A Gallery spokeswoman said: "They are full of amazingly drawn faces, the more you look at them the more you see. The red one is just faces in all different sizes each with their own personalities.
"Another is pink merging gradually into orange in colour and is full of skulls, strange prehistoric birds and fish bones.
"They are truly incredible. The other thing about these hangings, which would look fantastic in a large white stairwell, is that by siting them slightly away from the wall the shadows add a whole extra dimension resembling fine drawings in wire."
Also available are striking pieces of contemporary jewellery from Ten of this year's Top New Talents including more dripping glue in the form of dramatic necklaces.
Bright / Light runs until January 31. Salts Mill is open daily 10am - 5.30pm Mon - Fri and 10am - 6pm Sat and Sun.
