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.
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.
