David Thompson’s exhibition in Park’s Cafe

Park’s Cafe in the centre of Droitwich Spa is a place for the new exhibition of DAN member David Thompson.
Although David studied Textile Design at the South East Essex Art School and the Royal College of Art, in London, he did not start painting pictures until quite recently. He took numerous painting expeditions around Midlands and Wales, but also in distant lands such as France, Spain, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand. He enjoys trying to analyse and capture the variations in character of the landscape and the architecture and the qualities of light in these differing locations.

New exhibition of Cindy Williams in the Old Library

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.

Artist in View in ‘tricolore’

Artist in View was organised as the final event during the Arts Week. Droitwich Arts Network members were gather on the Victoria Square on 28th May to spend a day in a good, friendly atmosphere doing their art and demonstrating their techniques and skills to the public.

What this year’s Artist in View made a bit different than previous years is a French theme – from tricolore decorations of the marquees to the French-style costumes of the artists.
