by Claire Walker

A poetry pamphlet from V. Press

Join us for the launch event at Park’s Café-Bar, Victoria Square, Droitwich, Worcestershire WR9 8DS

Saturday December 9th, 7.00 – 9.00 pm

Free, open to the public, no booking required (except for food).

“There is a disquiet that moves through these poems. Walker explores what it means to create a sense of home, and how the people within it build our longings around us. Beautiful work by a rising star in poetry. These are words that linger after the last page.” Angela Readman

“Claire Walker’s quiet, almost still, narrative through these poems could reflect their rural setting or the sadness within the protagonist, yet that quietness is deceptive. There are passions here amid the juxtaposition of man and stag. These poems will have you checking your fingernails for soil, seeing antlers in your peripheral vision.” Brett Evans

Rosie Philpott at Park’s Café

Rosie Philpott, a local artist known for her ‘wonky’ paintings, has recently donned the walls of a local café with her artwork. The exhibition will be held at Park’s Café in Droitwich throughout the month of February, where Rosie has both prints and originals on display. Her paintings of local views, such as “Wonky Droitwich”, have proven extremely popular with their local characters and quirky style.

Rosie said: “I enjoy working in watercolour and fine line pen, exaggerating the scenes I see around me. It is rare that I get a chance to show my originals as they are usually already spoken for so it’s exciting that I get to show to a wider public.”

The exhibition is a scheme devised by the Droitwich Arts Network, where members can display their work for free at local venues. A different artist is given a chance to display their work each month.

Exhibitions in October

Droitwich Arts Network has a several venues where artists (payed DAN members) can present their arts. The exhibitions are on for the whole month or for two weeks period, and all venues are in the centre of Droitwich.

The Park’s Café at Victoria Square hosts the exhibition of Claire Hilton until 31 October. Claire is a freelance mixed media artist who works in wide range of techniques – from traditional oils and watercolours to 3D assemblages made from photography and lost & found objects.
