The Delta Senior Center is honored to display works of art by Erin Williams in the dining hall located at 247 Meeker Street.
Williams has made western Colorado her home for the past 42 years and says the visual splendor of this area is a constant inspiration for her work. "The contrasting landscape of stark desert set against the lush grandeur of a fertile valley ringed by snowcapped mountains has a profound effect on my artwork. The clarity of light gives color new meaning."
For the past eight years, Williams has specialized in creating "house portraits," customized, commissioned paintings of individual homes and businesses in the area. She has produced over 40 finished pieces in this genre. Many are enhanced with dramatic backgrounds. All of the paintings are finished to the specific wishes of the home owner. A sample of her house portraiture work can be seen at the Delta Senior Center.
Williams most enjoys the freedom of painting large colorful abstract paintings. Several of her recent pieces are six feet wide by three feet high. Those on display at the Delta Senior Center are not that large but certainly have a dramatic visual impact. Williams says, "I am pleased to be able to grace the walls of the Delta Senior Center. I hope you enjoy the spark and color these paintings bring to the room."
Erin Williams' work will be on display until mid-March. The Senior Center is open from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. Monday through Friday. The Thrift Shop in the center is open from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Lunch is served at noon in the hall. Donation for lunch is $3 for those 60 years old and older. All are welcome and encouraged to view this impressive display of Williams's work.
Delta Volunteer Fire Department (DVFD) will be holding its annual fireworks show at Confluence Park on Wednesday, July 4, having received approval from Delta City Council at the council's June 5 meeting.
The DVFD has 28 volunteers and expects to have eight to 10 firefighters from Cedaredge join them this year.
