April exhibitions in the library

April exhibitions in Droitwich library are all about the photography. Julian Rouse and Ric Harding , both members of Droitwich Camera Club, show the whole beauty and diversity of photography. 

Julian Rouse enjoys doing portraits and photographing people on the streets and in different situations. His documentary approach to the subject is accompanied by a narrative and subtle sense of humour. His black and white photograph of two young men was on display from 1st until 14th April.

3rd International Mail Art exhibition in Droitwich

LONG LIVE THE ART!
CALL FOR MAIL ART ARTIST TO CELEBRATE THE ART.

The ART has changed its styles, significance and meaning so many times throughout the history, but it has always been a constant part of humanity and the lives of people. Everybody enjoys the ART – commons and royals, children and adults, blue collars and white collars – the art should not know any borders, limits or restrictions. The ART is capable to fit into any shape and form, to fulfil any expectation, to adapt to be understandable to all and to be enigmatic and mysterious. The ART has a duty to enhance the reality, to see the beauty, to recognise diversity, to provoke our thoughts, to call for a rebellion, to punch and shake us.
