Droitwich Arts Network on Salt Fest 2015

Salt Fest weekend was an excellent opportunity for Droitwich Arts Network to promote its activities through an arts and craft exhibition and an art competition for the public. The exhibition in St Andrew’s Church in the town’s centre was a success, with total of 74 works in different art techniques exhibited and nearly 1000 people visited.

Droitwich High School pupils have displayed their photos snapped in and around Droitwich and show the talent and skillfulness that deserves a full acknowledgement. As it is the second year of their activities during the Salt Fest it would be great if it becomes a new tradition.

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.
