The CanalSide Studios’ group exhibition at Droitwich library

The CanalSide Studios is based in Stoke Prior and caters for artists of all abilities. It was started approximately five years ago and now has in excess of 50 students attending a variety of classes. 

For the many of the artists at the library, this is the very first public exhibition. 

The CanalSide Studios art teacher Karen Harmon brought together an excellent exhibition. Variety of techniques, styles, and themes makes this exhibition fresh and appealing and the reactions of visitors are very positive. 

Roger Ricketts’ exhibitions at Park’s Cafe and the Maltstone pub

Roger Ricketts has two solo exhibitions during March-April. At Park’s Cafe, Roger has a selection of colourful mixed media artworks. Mostly figurative abstract paintings, done in a combination of traditional media, such as acrylics and glass paint, with resin, polyfilla, noodles and a touch of gold. Roger’s bold and attractive paintings attracted a lot of interest, and several of paintings were sold. The exhibition is open until 17 April. 

The exhibition at the Maltstone pub brings up more paintings in various styles, seaside scenes, still life, flowers…, and is open until 1 May 2018.
