The Delta Senior Center is honored to display the photographic works of art by Celia Roberts in the dining hall located at 247 Meeker Street.

"Photography, to me, is a wonderful means of capturing a certain light that speaks to the heart as well as the eye," Roberts said. "My vision is to unite this light with color, texture and form in such a way that the viewer will discover newly their own relationship with nature and with one another, as a world community. Thus, my images place emphasis on the beauty and delicacy found in the natural world, as well as the grace and dignity which I have experienced among peoples of other cultures."

Although taking pictures was a part of her life since early childhood in Kentucky, Roberts discovered her passion for photography upon moving to Colorado in 1969 after receiving degrees from Hanover College in Indiana and the University of North Carolina. She presently lives in Paonia, where she continues her work as a nature and travel photographer, selling her images in retail outlets throughout the country and through her website. Her sensitive style of photography has been greatly influenced by the late Ernst Haas, renowned color photographer, with whom she studied and assisted many years.

Celia Roberts' work will be on display until mid-November. The Senior Center is open from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday. The Thrift Shop in the Center is open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Lunch is served at noon in the hall. Donation for lunch is $3 for those 60 years old and older, $8.40 for those younger. All are welcome and encouraged to view this impressive display of Celia Roberts' work.
