Delta Fine Arts held its annual show and sale at Bill Heddles Recreation Center June 22-24.
The show was judged by Arleta Pech, who awarded Best of Show to an oil painting titled "Late Summer" by Joe Milich.
Pech is a former resident of Arvada who now calls Austin home. She works in many media, including watercolor and oil. Her work is known for its realism and luminosity, painted with layers of transparent glazes. She also makes lampwork beads that have that same luminosity.
