Rosie Philpott, a local artist known for her ‘wonky’ paintings, has recently donned the walls of a local café with her artwork. The exhibition will be held at Park’s Café in Droitwich throughout the month of February, where Rosie has both prints and originals on display. Her paintings of local views, such as “Wonky Droitwich”, have proven extremely popular with their local characters and quirky style.
Rosie said: “I enjoy working in watercolour and fine line pen, exaggerating the scenes I see around me. It is rare that I get a chance to show my originals as they are usually already spoken for so it’s exciting that I get to show to a wider public.”
The exhibition is a scheme devised by the Droitwich Arts Network, where members can display their work for free at local venues. A different artist is given a chance to display their work each month.
Droitwich Camera Club is delighted to announce that the freelance nature photographer, writer and guide Mark Hamblin will be giving a lecture at Droitwich High School on Saturday, 25th March 2017, 7pm. The lecture is titled “Wild Scotland: A Photographic Odyssey”.
The tickets for the event can be purchased online on Droitwich Camera Club website or by phoning 07803162895. Tickets are £10 Adults & £8 Accompanied under 18’s.
