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.

St Andrew’s Church in the town centre will host an art exhibition as the part of the Salt Fest programme on 12th and 13th September. Droitwich Arts Network members are invited to show their artwork (paintings, drawings, photography…) during this two-days art show.

There will be some screens upon which photographs may be hung using sticky backed Velcro. There is no specific theme for this exhibition. As the part of this year exhibition, we will see artworks from artists of ‘Les Amis des Arts de Voiron’. This artistic collaboration with the artists from the twin town Voiron started as they took a part in the DAN exhibition at St Richard’s Festival earlier this year.

Over 2,000 new books in Planet Droitwich

Over 2,000 new books arrived in Planet Droitwich as a donation from one closed Birmingham’s bookshop. Even though Books For Free volunteers counted ‘only’ 500 copies today, it is clear that there are some very interesting titles. There is a book for everyone, from childrens’ fairy tales and young adult sci-fi novels to romance, thrillers and non-fiction books.

Among the new arrivals are numerous travel books and pocket travel guides, biographies and books about sport (horse riding, squash, cricket, golf, rugby, football, sailing, etc). Cooking books, encyclopedias, dictionaries, world classics, books on foreign languages (French, German, Italian, Russian…), magazines, poetry and all other genres can be found in Planet Droitwich. Finally, there is a quite good collection of DVDs and music CDs, as well as VHR tapes, that might be popular again (well, you never know!).
