“Wonky Droitwich” Returns!

Rosie Philpott first burst onto the local art scene in 2012 with her ‘Wonky Droitwich’ painting, depicting Droitwich Spa’s High Street in a quirky style. Since then the original and a limited number of 250 prints have completely sold out and fans of Rosie’s work have been requesting another version!

“Wonky Droitwich 1938”

The new painting, “Wonky Droitwich 1938” sets the familiar view of the wobbly High Street in the year 1938, bringing a vintage twist to the original.

Rosie explains “I had great fun using our local library to research the shops and owners along the street in 1938 and was surprised by the number of butchers and grocers that existed. I even discovered what a ‘grindery’ and ‘fancy repository’ are. I knew I had to change the painting from the original but keep the same feel, and, as a lover of all things vintage and retro, this seemed the perfect choice”.

The CanalSide Studios’ group exhibition at Droitwich library

The CanalSide Studios is based in Stoke Prior and caters for artists of all abilities. It was started approximately five years ago and now has in excess of 50 students attending a variety of classes. 

For the many of the artists at the library, this is the very first public exhibition. 

The CanalSide Studios art teacher Karen Harmon brought together an excellent exhibition. Variety of techniques, styles, and themes makes this exhibition fresh and appealing and the reactions of visitors are very positive. 

Roger Ricketts’ exhibitions at Park’s Cafe and the Maltstone pub

Mostly figurative abstract paintings, done in a combination of traditional media, such as acrylics and glass paint, with resin, polyfilla, noodles and a touch of gold. Roger’s bold and attractive paintings attracted a lot of interest, and several of paintings were sold. The exhibition is open until 17 April. 

The exhibition at the Maltstone pub brings up more paintings in various styles, seaside scenes, still life, flowers…, and is open until 1 May 2018.
