Recognizing that we're all connected in some way within our community, Gallery De La Luz in Delta has issued a call for artists for its upcoming benefit, "The Ties that Bind." Artists are asked to create a piece featuring or showcasing neckties. Hit the thrift stores, visit your uncle who retired from corporate life, and dig out those long-forgotten Father's Day gifts to pay homage to the forgotten piece of clothing ... the necktie!
The show is open to pieces in any medium. In addition to the traditional showpieces of paintings, sculpture and photography, this show will be a great outlet for the amazing textile/fiber artists who call Delta County home. The show is open to artists of any age and ability who live in Delta County.
Artists are asked to register with their intent to showcase by Jan. 8 by calling the gallery at 209-5393 or emailing gallery owner Ann Barker at AnnMBarker@hotmail.com. Submissions are due by 5 p.m., Jan. 29, at Gallery De La Luz, 128 Palmer Street, Delta. Size limitations on artwork apply; please call or email for questions and clarification.
The show opening will be Feb. 5 from 5-8 p.m. A portion of show sales will be donated to the Abraham Connection homeless shelter.
On Tuesday, Sept. 11, the Delta County Board of Commissioners called a special meeting to consider the board's response to the Bureau of Land Management's preliminary Environmental Assessment (EA) concerning the lease parcels proposed for the December BLM sale.
Several people from the North Fork were present to provide input.
