DAN member Cindy Williams from Redditch has a selection of her pastel paintings on display in the Old Library. Cindy is specialising in black and white paintings of Hollywood silent movie divas from 1920s and 1930s. The glamour, beauty and elegance of the movie stars is the greatest inspiration for Cindy’s art work. She is a prolific artist who is very keen to improve her skills by taking part in art workshops, courses, demonstrations by well-known artists…
The exhibition will be open until 27th June in the Old Library, 65 Ombersley Street East, Droitwich Spa.
