Lynda Sharp’s new exhibition

Lynda Sharp, a Bromsgrove-based DAN member, has her solo exhibition in Droitwich library until 31 March.  The paintings at the exhibition ‘Leap into Spring’ are inspired by nature – wildlife, birds, animals and flowers; and landscapes of a beautiful English countryside.  Lynda has been painting since her early childhood. She uses mostly watercolours, acrylics, and pastels, but recently started to experiment with fibre art. 

Diana Curley at Hanbury Hall

Diana Curley is one of the newest DAN members, but she has been creative and artistic all her life, even though professionally life took her in a different direction.  After retiring she decided to go back to her first love, the art, and she dedicated 9 years to studying for her BA(Hons) Painting Degree at the Open University of the Creative Arts. 

The exhibition at the Long Gallery is Diana’s degree show and it sums up her interest in both paintings and sculpture, that are delicately interwoven and live together in a very natural way. An important element of Diana’s work is a movement. It is present in her colourful sculptures in an automatic or manual mechanical way, or spontaneous movements with the flow of air. The movement is present even in 2D paintings through the cleverly cut shapes that seem to move around the surface. 

‘A Noisy Affair’

Local artists celebrate successful fundraising M&Co Fashion Show

DAN artists turned models for the evening as they paraded in M&Co’s latest fashions in a bid to raise money for the Droitwich Arts Network.

DAN is always looking to raise funds to continue their artistic activities with the public and to engage more people in the arts. Wednesday 14th March was no exception, as, with the help of M&Co staff and friends, they held a fashion show. Over 80 guests attended to support the models, take part in the raffle and above all, shop!

(L to R) DAN Members Rosie Philpott, John Bodley, Malcolm Wakeman with Chair, Helen Karakashian

Helen Karakashian, Chair of Droitwich Arts Network, said: “It was an excellent night with great community spirit. I would certainly like thank the local businesses such as Park’s Café, Café Morso, Muffin Break and the Community Centre who came to our aid with their chairs”.
