DAN network exhibitions

Peter Hawkins’ paintings in Parks Cafe

Peter Hawkins is the artist for January at Park’s Café. “I am an amateur, preferring acrylics. I tend to paint landscapes most, though I love the challenge of portraits, too. Whilst I work from photos, I do not like to paint something I have not seen for myself. Photographs rarely get the colours right across the picture and often you need to make changes for the painting to work.”

Member’s exhibitions in 2016

Droitwich Arts Network members have an opportunity to exhibit their works in several venues across the town. It is possible to show artworks throughout the year at the Droitwich Library (limited space at ‘DAN table’ on the Library’s ground floor), Park’s Cafe (an excellent space for solo exhibitions that accomodates approx. 10 artworks, medium size), The Button Tree Cafe (the corner of the Cafe can accomodate approx. 8 medium size artworks) , the Old Library, Gardeners Arms…
