Karen Hotchkiss in the library

Droitwich Arts Network has a little art corner in Droitwich library where all members have an opportunity to show up their artwork. It is on the ground floor of the library, just below staircase, and many library visitors stop to check what is new on Droitwich art scene.

DAN member Karen Hotchkiss shows her watercolour still life in the library from 9 – 23 July. To see more of Karen’s art please visit her page on DAN website. 

Karen Barlow in Droitwich library

Karen Barlow will display her painting “Colourful Culture” in Droitwich library for the next two weeks, started with 25th June. Karen’s painting is inspired by African tribal art and it is made in combination of acrylics, tissue and melon seeds. Quite unusual and bold painting, certainly worth to take a look when you next time in the library.

Peter Hawkins’ painting in the library

Peter Hawkins exhibits his acrylic on canvas ‘The Quay, Dartmouth’.  The painting will be on display in the Droitwich library (ground floor) until 11th June.

Peter says: ‘I was fascinated by the harbour and the variety of buildings that surround it. I followed this picture with one of Dittisham from across the River Dart. I took longer on this picture than any other (to date) —108 hours.’

Stephen Williams in the library

Stephen Williams has his painting on display in the library until 28 May. Stephen is an artist and retired art teacher from Redditch. He exhibited on several occasions in 1970s, and in 1976 he won ‘Mid Art’ prize for painting. He works, almost exclusively, in oils, and the theme of his work centres around abstract landscape. He usually let his paintings to develop spontaneously and his finished works often offer more than one way to look at and understand it.
