Winter exhibitions’ review

This winter Droitwich Arts Network members certainly don’t hibernate but are very active. The result is a few very interesting exhibitions in and around the town. 

The year has begun with a group exhibition in Park’s Cafe which brought together different styles, subjects and techniques. In the same venue, Trisha Kenny followed with the selection of beautiful watercolours and drawings, mostly inspired by nature (flowers, woodland, trees…). Trisha is known to spend every moment in sketching and she always has her sketchbook ready to catch an interesting scene.

At the moment Stephen Evans has an ongoing exhibition in the Park’s Cafe and it will be on display until 20 March. Stephen says: “For this exhibition I have chosen to pay tribute to Paul Colin (1892 – 1985), who was one of France’s most famous poster artists. To illustrate his brilliant work I selected 5 graphic designs from his “Tumulte Noir” Jazz Age Portfolio 1927, which I have reproduced in pastel chalks. Come along to Park’s Cafe where you can enjoy delicious meals and drinks whilst viewing my original artworks.” 

Dorothy Humphries and Penny Dykes share the space at The Maltstone Pub with the selection of their paintings. This exhibition can be seen until 6 March, when Alison Hinton will show her artwork. She will also show her picture in Droitwich library.

DAN corner in the library is showing new artist/artworks every two weeks, so we had a chance to see Justine Humphries’ two interesting watercolours on a book page, and paintings by Bob Addy and Stephen Evans. Mixed media hand stitched picture by Tamara Jelaca is on display until 10 March.
