Photographs by Prabhjot Virdi-Smith

Prabhjot Virdi-Smith 3Local photographer Prabhjot Virdi-Smith is showing 15 photographs in Park’s Café during August. Prabhjot seeks her inspiration mostly in landscapes and architecture. She likes to play with light and shade, as much as she searches for a specific atmosphere and richness of various textures.

Prabhjot is an experienced photographer and both her black & white and colour photographs reveal her passion for nature and the places she visits and enjoys in everyday life.

Karen Hotchkiss’ painting at Droitwich Library

Karen Hotchkiss in LibraryKaren Hotchkiss showing her watercolours and acrylic painting “Evening Heavens” at Droitwich Library for two weeks, from Saturday, 1st August until Saturday, 15th August.

Karen says about her painting method, “I laid down the palest water colours first and gradually added more colour until I finished with indigo blue. Once dry I painted in the distant mountains and pine trees and added the foreground. Then I covered up the the landscape and spattered acrylic paint into the sky. The painting was inspired by a beautiful time-lapse video I saw of the stars moving across the sky at night.

Photo Walk: Quirky Droitwich!

Photo walk 1Join the DAN PIGs (Photography Interest Group) for a Photo Walk on Thursday 13th August. Meet at the top of the High Street where it meets the Worcester Road (Queen Street) at 7.15pm.

The route is flexible but will be: along the High Street, pop into Gurneys Lane, pop into Tower Hill, past St Andrews Church, and along Friar Street. Lots of old quirky buildings.

We can finish up at the Old Cock or the Gardeners Arms. Anyone can join in. You don’t have to be a paid up member of DAN. Any camera will do. It’s just for fun. Guidance will be available from experienced photographers.

Please add a comment if you would like to come along.

Contemporary embroidery by Tamara Jelaca

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAFrom 4th August till 1st September The Button Tree café features contemporary embroideries by Tamara Jelaca.  The café’s visitors have a chance to see eight works that Tamara choose to show as a review of her work from 2008 until 2011.

Tamara’s embroideries are textile illustrations of her thoughts, feelings and daily life. Tamara says, “I always look for an inspiration around me. It can be a song, a book, a person or particular situation, even TV programme or newspaper article. I am also very introspective person and, therefore, a great source for the inspiration.”

All works are made in techniques of free hand embroidery, acrylic and textile painting, and tea-dying.
