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.

Tamara Jelaca, the organiser of the exhibition and founder of Droitwich Mail Art, explains: ‘After a very successful 2017 exhibition, with a large number of submissions arrived and my fear that gallery space allocated to the project won’t be enough big, I am glad to announce that the new Droitwich Mail Art project is on now. The theme is Self Portrait [past, present, future and wannabe self] and the artists are invited to look at their mirrors (real or imagined) and create the picture of themselves, as they are or wish to be, or how they looked once upon the time.’

Here are few important notes:

Theme: Self Portrait
Technique: Any [except videos and 3D] Format: please choose A6 [10cm X 15cm] or A5 [15cm X 21cm], if possible.
No entry fee, no returns, all mail art will be exhibited. Racist, violent and pornographic artworks will not be exhibited. Max. 2 submissions per artist.
