The Delta Senior Center is honored to display works of art by Linda Aubery in the dining hall located at 247 Meeker Street.
Aubery says, "Art has been a part of my life from an early age. I had such encouragement from family and teachers and art instructors that it was a natural plan for me to seek a degree as a commercial artist from Vincennes University, Vincennes, Ind. I've worked as a freelance artist, advertising manager, artist for a newspaper and a college's audiovisual department, and even had my own ad agency for a short time. I'm currently a fulltime ordained children's pastor, yet art is still a big part of my life.
"Each summer I teach kids different forms of art at a weekly Festival of the Arts. I have directed five different puppet teams winning several gold medals in competition. I am also a gospel chalk artist carrying on an old art form missionaries have used."
Aubery is a member of Delta Fine Arts and the Black Canyon Camera Club.
She says her favorite mediums are oils and alcohol inks, but a move to Colorado inspired her to also learn photography. She enjoys scrapbooking, quilting and crafting of all types.
Aubery's work will be on display through January. The senior center is open from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. Monday-Friday. The thrift shop 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. All are welcome to view this impressive display of work.
The election results are in at the local, state and national level, and as expected, Democrats are doing well in state and national races. Colorado has elected Jared Polis as governor; nationally the Republicans appear to retain control of the Senate while Democrats now control the House of Representative.
With a ballot full of local and state measures, voter turnout in Delta County topped 71%, with 15,889 ballots cast. Statewide, voter turnout was just over 52%.
Of the three Delta County residents seeking state offices, Matt Soper won over Thea Chase in State Representative Dist. 54; Mike Mason lost to Julie McCluskie in State Representative Dist. 61; and Olen Lund lost to Kerry Donovan in State Senate Dist. 5.
Locally, in the City of Delta voters rejected a .5% sales tax increase to fund recreation, as well as recreational marijuana sales. The sale of medical marijuana and cultivation/manufacturing facilities was approved by a slim margin. Delta voters also gave the city the green light to move forward with selling or trading the Cottonwood and Riverbend Park, and to sell the old Municipal Light and Power Building.
