April will be busy months for Droitwich Arts Network members. Our traditional exhibition in the Long Gallery of Hanbury Hall will be held in April, rather than usual October. For 10 days (6 – 15 April) the visitors will enjoy a selection of paintings, textiles, crafts and cards from 24 artists. Most of the artworks are for sale, so there is a chance to buy a fantastic, unique present or treat yourself with something new for your home. 

After a commercially successful exhibition in Park’s Cafe last month, Rosie Philpott has a display of 3 pictures in Droitwich library. “Wonky Droitwich 1938”, “Victoria Square” and “Lazy Sunday at the Lido Park” are for sale. If interested, please contact Rosie directly. Rosie’s display will be in the library until 6 April. Upcoming artists who will show their works for 2-weeks displays are Stewart Bourne (6 – 20 April) and Ruth Bourne (20 April – 4 May), both the exceptional photographers. 

Park’s Cafe hosts the exhibition of 2 artists – Lyn Davies and Steve Williams. Although working in very different styles, Lyn and Steve’s joint exhibitions are always work well together and are a real treat for any art lover. Their exhibition will be on until 23 April. Tina Watkins will exhibit her paintings from 23 April until 21 May.

April’s meeting is scheduled for 8 April, starting 7.30pm at the Park’s Cafe, when Sara Morgan and her colleagues will give us a talk about Worcestershire Open Studios.  

 

Graham Wilson’s watercolour demonstration

DAN meeting on 11th June at The Park’s Café was an opportunity to learn more about or be introduced to the watercolour technique. Many artists dread the thought to do watercolours, as it is considered somewhat advanced painting technique that requires a lot of skill and good quality and expensive material. 

Graham Wilson, a local artist and illustrator, show us during his demonstration that there is nothing to fear about the watercolours. Going step-by-step and leading us through a landscape painting, he showed us how to paint the sky, sea, sand, trees and figures with ease. In a humorous way, with a lot of interesting side stories, Graham explained his ways to improve the technique and do it in an adventurous and inventive way. 

On his website, Graham says: “I have painted all my life and for many years only worked in watercolour. Over the last ten years I have become more adventurous and now work in watercolour, acrylic and even oils on occasion.”  He has created illustrations for books, magazines, calendars and greeting cards.
