Arts week – Artist in residence – 21-27 May

Here is an opportunity for people to see you in action and see your work! (It can help sales, too, people are more likely to buy from an artist they have met).

As the artists in residence spaces were so popular last year, we’ll have two venues this year – the Library and the Meet Box.

Please click on the link below, complete the form, and send to Peter Hawkins ([email protected]) or hand in at Park’s Café

Tamara Jelača ‘s embroidered illustration

Tamara Jelača has a two-weeks display in Droitwich Library, from 2 April until 16 April. She chose to show her small-format embroidery that was part of the series of illustrations for contemporary American poetry. The piece is inspired by Louis Simpsons famous poem “American Poetry”. Simpson described a poem like a silver mine. Silver does not usually sit on the top of the earth to be grabbed by any prospector. The miner needs to dig, excavate, and search for precious metal. Poetry requires the reader to do the same. For me, a poem is like a tornado. Like a powerful swoosh of ink, words and meanings.

Pastel painting by Cindy Williams in the Library

Cindy’s painting “The Girl From Mexico” is on show 19 March through 2 April in the Droitwich Public Library on the DAN table. This beautiful pastels painting on heavyweight paper is 12″ x 8″ in size and it is Cindy’s latest picture. Below you can see the few stages in the process of making this painting.

Cindy Williams is American and moved to the UK in 2003.  She has wanted to be an artist since she was a young girl, and in 2009 she found out she could actually paint. In 2011 she started painting Jazz era and art deco era paintings.  Her favourite paintings to create are black and white paintings of the SILENT FILM DIVAS of the 1920’s and 30’s.
