The Roads Through Covid

Trapezium Arts is hosting a brand new Artist's Gallery, of work by Sue Wilde, open to everyone with access to the internet.

Sue's exhibition, The Covid 19, is her response to our current 'interesting' times, with works based on road maps, using the routes, towns and coastlines of our country to show patterns and express her feelings.

Sue Wilde says:

"During the first lockdown, and the need to stay at home, I found myself doodling on paper maps, and travelling the UK in my mind, thinking of people and places I knew. The result is The COVID 19, nineteen works that reflect strange, disturbing, unsettling and darkly humorous states as well as the bright and vibrant sense of life continuing during this unprecedented time.

"The work was helpful to me personally, as I lost myself in colour, pattern and design. The 'viral' look of these pieces reflects the coronavirus images that regularly bombard our news screens."

Trapezium Arts' online gallery shows the wonderful and varied creativity in Bradford and surrounding areas, with Open, Themed and Artists galleries that include art, photography and crafts.

Submissions by anyone in the Bradford area are welcomed, and details can be found at

Ken Woods of volunteer-run Trapezium Arts had this to say:

"We're going to continue showing work, even though we can't be in our Kirkgate gallery, and we encourage local artists who want to exhibit in an online gallery to please get in touch - if the technology puts you off let us know and we'll be happy to help you through the process.

"When the time is right we'll be back in the Kirkgate gallery, just as soon as it's permissible and safe to do so. If you'd like to submit work for any of our online galleries, please email us at

"Thank you to everyone for their ongoing support for Trapezium Arts, and we'd be very grateful if you shared the word about what we're doing, to reach more local artists and art lovers."

All Sue Wilde's pieces are for sale at £75 each, mounted on black card and unframed. Please view them at and contact if you're interested.
