Information shown on this website is not used by the curator, Colin Neville, for any commercial purposes. What is shown is freely available to all and is not used for any purpose, other than providing information about Bradford district artists, past and present. The site is funded exclusively by Colin Neville and there is no commercial or other external funding support involved. Artists do not pay to feature on the site.

Biographical profiles of artists can only be written if sufficient reliable information in the public domain, or from interested individuals, is available. Featured living artists are always contacted and asked for their permission at the time of first publishing  to use the images shown and given the opportunity to amend or delete the post in question then, and at any point subsequently.
