The exhibition in the Library

Chris Walker and Trevor Hunter, two of the winners of the Hanbury Hall exhibition 2018


Artrix Summer Exhibition 2016

Artrix Exhibition 2016 will be held from 11th July to 15th August 2016 in Artrix, Bromsgrove. Artrix Summer Exhibition 2015 was a great success, attracting over 80 submissions. There was excellent feedback from visitors and artists alike. What made this exhibition different is the fact that team of 13 Young Curators benefitted from their first experience curating an exhibition and several of those artists exhibiting have once again gone on to book solo exhibitions with Artrix.

New artwork on Library display

DAN member Karen Hotchkiss are exhibiting her artwork in the last two weeks in January. “The picture of ‘Elephants Greeting’ was done using pastels on a light grey Ingres paper,” says Karen about her artwork.”It was interesting finding all the different colours in the grey tones of the skin.”

Droitwich Arts Network AGM

Droitwich Arts Network AGM will be held soon and a new team of officers has to be elected. Some nominations are already announced on 12th January at the planning meeting, but we certainly need more volunteers.

Members’ engagement is very important to keep DAN active and their involvement can be in duties throughout the year or as a support during particular.  Members who wish to help in organising the events in various roles, please come forward and help DAN to have a very succesful 2016.

Peter Hawkins’ paintings in Parks Cafe

Peter Hawkins is the artist for January at Park’s Café. “I am an amateur, preferring acrylics. I tend to paint landscapes most, though I love the challenge of portraits, too. Whilst I work from photos, I do not like to paint something I have not seen for myself. Photographs rarely get the colours right across the picture and often you need to make changes for the painting to work.”
