Exhibitions in June

©Nigel Reader

Droitwich Arts Network exhibitions in June are very interesting in their diversity. Droitwich Library hosted a picture by John Bodley (read more) and local photographer Nigel Reader, a member of Droitwich Camera Club for 10 years. He has displayed his black & white photograph taken on an iPhone, which is a proof that in photography is much more important to have an idea, a good eye, and a sense for the ‘right moment’ than a costly camera (not that Nigel doesn’t use professional equipment too). The Button Tree Cafe on High Street is the home for another exhibition. Local artist Sue Harley have chosen 8 of her pictures, with subjects of animals and nature, to show at her exhibition. There are minimalistic drawings of cats and gentle portraits of animals, such as elephant, lion and hare. 

John Bodley’s painting in Droitwich library

Droitwich Arts Network member and former treasurer, John Bodley, has his acrylic painting on display in the library during the first two weeks of June. He started his formal art education at Dudley School of Art and Craft  58 years ago, but changed his career path and became an electrical engineer. 

John’s passion for the art continued through his life and even intensified since he retired. Now he enjoys working in various techniques – watercolour, drawings, oil and acrylics. The displayed picture ‘Rolls Roys Silver Ghost 1915’ reveals also his passion for vintage cars and oldtimers.
