Some 24 local artists will present their recent works until the end of August.

At the same time, the library will host the third international Mail Art exhibition 'Long Live the Art!'.

This project was started in 2015 by local artist Tamara Jelaca, with the aim to bring some fresh and new art into Droitwich Spa.

An event spokesman said: "Mail art, small format artworks sent by postal service, seems to be a perfect format thanks to its non-formality and free representation.

"This year, the response from the artist was excellent."
