Stephen Evans at The Maltstone

DAN member Stephen Evans has his exhibition at The Maltstone restaurant from 12 December until 9 January 2018. 

The Maltstone is a lovely restaurant situated in Cutnall Green on the Droitwich to Kidderminster Road where DAN Members have been welcomed to display their artwork over four week periods.  

Stephen says, “I set up my exhibition on Tuesday 12th December displaying eight exciting and challenging subjects that I have enjoyed ‘Painting for Pleasure’. One painting in particular is ‘ Dragon Series at speed on the Solent’ (picture above), which while on display at the DAN Hanbury Hall exhibition, inspired  Worcestershire Poet Laureate Nina Lewis to write the beautiful poem ‘Cyclonic’ which works really well alongside the painting. I believe arranged together like this to be a first for DAN and perhaps artists and poets ought to consider undertaking more inspirational work and joint displays?”

Exhibitions in June

Droitwich Arts Network exhibitions in June are very interesting in their diversity. Droitwich Library hosted a picture by John Bodley (read more) and local photographer Nigel Reader, a member of Droitwich Camera Club for 10 years. He has displayed his black & white photograph taken on an iPhone, which is a proof that in photography is much more important to have an idea, a good eye, and a sense for the ‘right moment’ than a costly camera (not that Nigel doesn’t use professional equipment too). The Button Tree Cafe on High Street is the home for another exhibition. Local artist Sue Harley have chosen 8 of her pictures, with subjects of animals and nature, to show at her exhibition. There are minimalistic drawings of cats and gentle portraits of animals, such as elephant, lion and hare. 

March exhibitions by DAN members

A popular local restaurant, the Park’s Café (4 Victoria Square), is hosting an exhibition of watercolours by Chris Walker. Chris is an amateur artist who took up painting when she retired. She is very skilled watercolourist, but she uses a range of media including graphite, coloured pencils and pastel. The watercolours at this exhibition show wide range of subjects – animals and plants, birds, landscapes and architectural landmarks. Her exhibition is on until the end of March.
