DAN network exhibitions


Long Gallery exhibition at Hanbury Hall is opening soon

Hanbury Exhibition in the Long Gallery – 10th October to 3rd November.

There really will be lots for you to do and see! Throughout the exhibition we have painting, spinning, weaving, knitting, embroidering and performing on a variety of musical instruments. A group of poets, led by the former Poet Laureate for Worcestershire, Nina Lewis, will be visiting in order to create new works inspired by the exhibition. You can also vote for your favourite artwork. From past experience, I can tell you that it is always a lovely atmosphere and great to discuss the works with visitors.

Exhibition is open daily in the Long Gallery, 10am – 5pm.

Normal admission charges apply. Free to National Trust members.

Bring your art in for the Hanbury Hall 2018 exhibition

Hanbury Hall, the National Trust property near Droitwich Spa, opens its Long Gallery doors for another Droitwich Arts Network exhibition. With a success of previous years, this is the most popular exhibition in the year and both artists and visitors. It seems to be the pinnacle of DAN’s artistic year.

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.
