Upcoming exhibitions in April

Steve Williams in the Park’s Cafe

April will be busy months for Droitwich Arts Network members. Our traditional exhibition in the Long Gallery of Hanbury Hall will be held in April, rather than usual October. For 10 days (6 – 15 April) the visitors will enjoy a selection of paintings, textiles, crafts and cards from 24 artists. Most of the artworks are for sale, so there is a chance to buy a fantastic, unique present or treat yourself with something new for your home. 

After a commercially successful exhibition in Park’s Cafe last month, Rosie Philpott has a display of 3 pictures in Droitwich library. “Wonky Droitwich 1938”, “Victoria Square” and “Lazy Sunday at the Lido Park” are for sale. If interested, please contact Rosie directly. Rosie’s display will be in the library until 6 April. Upcoming artists who will show their works for 2-weeks displays are Stewart Bourne (6 – 20 April) and Ruth Bourne (20 April – 4 May), both the exceptional photographers. 

Park’s Cafe hosts the exhibition of 2 artists – Lyn Davies and Steve Williams. Although working in very different styles, Lyn and Steve’s joint exhibitions are always work well together and are a real treat for any art lover. Their exhibition will be on until 23 April. Tina Watkins will exhibit her paintings from 23 April until 21 May.

April’s meeting is scheduled for 8 April, starting 7.30pm at the Park’s Cafe, when Sara Morgan and her colleagues will give us a talk about Worcestershire Open Studios.  

 

Art activities in February

Though February is the shortest month, it is a lot of things going on at the moment. The exhibitions in Park’s Cafe are always very popular and this month we can see two artists. Roger Ricketts opened his exhibition in January and the paintings for this exhibition are mostly dedicated to Love and Valentine’s Day. Roger’s paintings are made in mixed media and resin and they attracted a lot of interest. 

From 19th February, Park’s Cafe will host the exhibition of Rosie Philpott’s artworks. Her watercolour and ink illustrations of wonky Droitwich with many of the town’s important spots (canal, Vines Park, Dodderhill Church…) are well recognisable.

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.
