Ruth Bourne’s photo canvases at The Button Tree Cafe

Visitors of The Button Tree café in High Street may see a new exhibition this month.  Seven photo canvases by Ruth Bourne are on display during September. Ruth have made a selection of her landscapes and architecture photographs. Her subtle and melancholic landscapes are ‘Misty Morning’ near Upton Warren, ‘Out of the Mist’ in San Francisco, ‘Waddensee Walkers’ in Germany, and an interesting double exposed photograph ‘Wood Between the Worlds’ take at Upton Warren. Parisian triptych called ‘Fractured Times’ is more dramatic, with a strong contrast of light and shade, with a gentle touch of sky-blue.

Rosie Philpott’s exhibition at Park’s Cafe

Rosie Philpott is a local artist based in Droitwich Spa. After studying Fine Art and English Literature at Worcester University, she is excited to be making a living as an artist and illustrator and is delighted to take part in local town events.

Her paintings of local views, such as “Wonky Droitwich” and “Salt Day”, have proven extremely popular with their ‘local characters’ and quirky style. Rosie enjoys working in watercolour and fine line pen, exaggerating the scenes she sees around her. She has recently begun extending her work across the Malvern and Worcester area and is now capturing these scenes in her ‘wonky’ style.
