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.
Tamara Jelača, member of Droitwich Arts Network, is displaying her contemporary textiles throughout August Park’s Cafe in Victoria Square, Droitwich Spa. Tamara is Serbian artist based in Droitwich Spa since 2013 who works predominantly in the field of contemporary textiles. Since she graduated textile design from the Art University in Belgrade in 1996, Tamara experimented with different textile materials and techniques, but in last decade she grows more interest in embroidery and stitching.
Tamara was taking a part in over 70 group exhibitions and projects in Serbia and abroad (Switzerland, Italy, Czech Republic, Lithuania, Sweden, France, Spain, Germany, Bolivia, United Kingdom). She exhibited her work in 9 solo exhibitions.
