A popular local restaurant, the Park’s Café (4 Victoria Square), is hosting an exhibition of watercolours by Chris Walker. Chris is an amateur artist who took up painting when she retired. She is very skilled watercolourist, but she uses a range of media including graphite, coloured pencils and pastel. The watercolours at this exhibition show wide range of subjects – animals and plants, birds, landscapes and architectural landmarks. Her exhibition is on until the end of March.
In January few DAN members will show their artworks to the public. Droitwich library are displaying two artworks per month and in January you have a chance to see Chris Walker’s subtle watercolour (7 – 21 January) and one of Peter Hawkins’ realistic acrylic paintings (21 January – 4 February).
The Park’s Café is hosting Karen Barlow’s exhibition for the whole month. Karen likes to experiment with different mediums, combining acrylic painting with found objects, textiles, beads, seeds, tissue papers and similar materials to create vibrant textures in her paintings.
During the November several DAN members have a opportunity to show their work in various places around Droitwich. DAN communication team was doing a great job in last couple of months to promote network’s activities, individual artists and the future plans. Therefore we have had a very good coverage in the local papers for all recent projects (Hanbury Hall exhibition, charity fashion show).
Droitwich Arts Network has a several venues where artists (payed DAN members) can present their arts. The exhibitions are on for the whole month or for two weeks period, and all venues are in the centre of Droitwich.
The Park’s Café at Victoria Square hosts the exhibition of Claire Hilton until 31 October. Claire is a freelance mixed media artist who works in wide range of techniques – from traditional oils and watercolours to 3D assemblages made from photography and lost & found objects.
