Also today, December 14, is the opening night of the exhibition Wildness Between the Lines in the College Art in Leeds:
Wildness Between the Lines
Leeds College of Art
14 December 2012 - 2 February 2013
Monday - Saturday 10am - 4pm

Wuthering Heights, Jane Eyre, The Tenant of Wildfell Hall; these are just some of the works produced by the Brontës which have an enduring and universal appeal. The inspirational legacy of the Brontë family can be seen in a wide variety of contemporary creativity.
This exhibition is a unique opportunity to see, in one place, the work of a number of emerging and established artists, all of whom cite the Brontës as a source of continuing inspiration for their own creative practice.
Works by Catherine Bertola, Su Blackwell, Bristow & Lloyd, Victoria Brookland, Paula Chambers, The Hellars, Victoria Lucas, Lisa Sheppy, Aymee Smith, Stephanie Vegh, Simon Warner, Marci Washington, Teresa Whitfield or Rebecca Chesney (weather station and all) will be exhibited. Some of them can be seen here and here. David Wilson's music The Visitor will also be part of the exhibition.
