Featured Artist: Anita Delal
One of the artists featured in the Art Council of Livingston’s current show, “Here and There,” is Anita Delal. After a career in teaching in West Orange, NJ, she began oil painting. Early subjects were skies. “I loved their constantly changing colors and patterns,” said Delal. This led her to experiment with abstract painting.
Her paintings in this show are done with cold wax and oils. Cold wax is laid down and then scratched and grooved into layers which adds texture and interest to her paintings. Inspiration for these pieces are the shapes, crevices, colors and markings throughout the canyons in the National Parks of Utah. “In my studio I tried to recreate the feelings I had when hiking through those canyons last May,” added Delal.
The Arts Council of Livingston Gallery's fall show, “Here & There,” is underway and continues through October 20. The curator for the show is photographer Larry Sohn.
Artists from Livingston and surrounding towns are represented. Fine art disciplines including mixed media, jewelry, blown glass, painting, sculpture, pottery, printmaking, and photography will be on display. Most artwork is available for sale.
The ACL Gallery is located at 2130 Town Center Way (enter on Carillon Circle). The Show will be on display from 12 pm to 5 pm on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from September 21 to October 20. Appointments for other times may be made by calling Joan Speare at 508-982-1083.
