"Kim Whitby 2023 - An introduction to my work"

1 November to 30 December, 2023

Art exhibition in the Cafe Gallery at Malvern Library by award winning British artist and Malvern resident Kim Whitby. Kim is nationally commissioned, exhibited and winner of 'en plein air' painting competitions but is also showing local and domestic Malvern-based artwork.

Kim enjoys using colour and uses both watercolour and oil paint but is popularly known for her work in black ink on paper. Ink is traditionally held to be a drawing medium but the marks, patterns and shapes made with this wet medium and might equally be considered paintings.

It is an unforgiving and permanent medium but Kim embraces the challenge of harnessing and controlling ink’s immediacy and flow.

She is evolving a mark making repertoire to suggestively abbreviate and abstract the key visual elements in a subject, working spontaneously to produce fresh and lively pieces in both ink or colour.

Structures are visually appealing subjects for Kim; architecture, trees, rocks and boats become frequent motifs. She finds scale intriguing in both the immediate sense of it and how that can be communicated when formulating compositions; she works in all sizes.

Kim loves immersing herself in places of historical or geographical uniqueness or interest. She has lived in Malvern for two years.

Some of her smaller work on display is for sale and will make excellent gifts.

Read and Grow gardening project

Following a successful bid to Postcode Local Trust, we have obtained funding to develop a small sensory garden on the back terrace of the Library.

We invite the community to join us and enjoy a season of learning how to grow herbs and vegetables using organic methods. We meet weekly on Tuesday afternoons 2:00pm to 3:30pm.

If you would like to be involved with designing this garden, please contact Malvern Library.
