New exhibition in the Meetbox

After NouveauStephen Evans is showing his paintings in the Meetbox until the end of August. Stephen is active member of Droitwich Arts Network and his paintings are often on display in the Droitwich art venues.

One of the newest paintings Stephen chose to show on this exhibition is ‘After Nouveau’  painted in watercolour and ink. Stephen says, “It was taken from a print I found in the October issue of the Artist Magazine 1896. It was an interesting, challenging but enjoyable project and was I very pleased with the finished painting.”

In his paintings, Stephen Evans shows an interest in various topics such as nature, animals, architecture, seascapes, people in action, and he is always willing to experiment with new subject or technique.

Sam Hutchcocks: Artist in residence

Local artist Sam Hutchcocks was an artist in residence in the Meetbox in the first week of July. During her residency, Sam was working on her new painting of a bunch of yellow flowers in acrylics and paper collage.

Beside the chance to meet the artist, talk to her and watch her creating a new piece of art, the Meetbox visitors were able to see the exhibition of Sam’s paintings. 

Peter Hawkins is an artist-in-residence in the Meetbox

Peter Hawkins was an artist-in-residence from 20th until 27th June. Peter was in the Meetbox during the whole week, painting his new picture. The theme of the painting is a bit unusual for Peter who is the best known for his meticulously realistic landscapes. He chose to paint a scene from a busy Spanish street market full of people.  We all looking forward to see this painting finished.
