Stephen Evans exhibits at Park’s Café

Paintings collectionLocal amateur artist Stephen Evans is displaying a range of his paintings throughout November at Park’s Café in Victoria Square, Droitwich.

Stephen said: “Inspiration for my work comes from different sources but I mainly use my own photographs or those sent to me by family and friends. I like to choose challenging subjects to paint with watercolours and think that over the years I have developed a unique and interesting style.

The title of the exhibition is ‘Painting for Pleasure’ because of the enjoyment Stephen has creating his art. He hopes visitors will find pleasure viewing the selection of works on display. As this is the time of year when we Remember the men and women who lost their lives in two world wars and in more recent conflicts, Stephen has put together a display of paintings to recognise this very special occasion.

Jacqui Morley Brooker1A freelance photographer Jacqui Morley-Brooker currently has a display at The Button Tree Café in Droitwich throughout October 2015. Jacqui says about her beginnings in photography, “I’ve been interested in photography since I was late teens (long before digital photography was dreamt of) and only progressed into using a DSLR 3 years ago.  In the past year I have started  entering photography competitions and exhibit my work which has been a scary step to start putting my work ‘out there’ for public scrutiny.”

Mail Art Exhibition “Connection is Made…”

by Tamara Jelaca

The idea of Mail Art Exhibition came to me for two main reasons. The first one because I always liked the idea of exchanging art and connecting with other artists. The second reason was absolutely perfect format of mail art that I was considering as ideal to make a connection between artists in Droitwich Spa and a twin town Voiron in France. That was only the beginning.
