Local Arts Network keeping the arts alive through a virtual gallery.
Droitwich Arts Network (DAN) is helping to keep the local arts scene alive with their first virtual exhibition. After a ‘private view’ for their members over Zoom, the exhibition has now gone live on the DAN website and can be viewed by the public. The slide show style video has works by over 30 local artists and consists of painting, pottery, photography, textiles, music and prose.
Rosie Philpott, local artist and secretary of DAN says: “It is wonderful to see how much variety we have within the network. We have so many talented members and in times like these it has been lovely to share with each other and the wider public. Special thanks must go to fellow member and photographer Rhys Jones who coordinated the exhibition.”
The video lasts around 20 minutes and can be viewed on the DAN website. Rosie continued: “We are so pleased with the turn out and response we have received so far. As well as our regular meetings via Zoom consisting of demonstrations, discussions and ‘show and tell’, we hope to do more virtual exhibitions like this in the future.”
Caroline Tredwell, Wychavon Arts Development Officer said: “The Covid-19 pandemic has had a devastating impact on the arts world along with all other areas of life. I have great admiration and appreciation for the innovation of groups like the Droitwich Arts Network that has enabled us to share some of the joy that creativity brings to our lives”.
