Granite Area Arts Council features paintings of Hancock artist Della Conroy
FERGUS FALLS -- This time of year, the landscapes take over our visual experience with the changing of the seasons. The colors and forms take on new hues and shapes that get us ready for the impending weather.
Della Conroy is a painter that presents work in both the realist and abstract forms. Her images of Western Minnesota exude the beauty that many take for granted. She paints scenes depicting the grasses, trees, rivers and lakes found in our area.
Her work becomes a visual narrative of the prairie landscape that she expresses through a variety of mediums. Her soft but colorful landscapes exude peace, serenity, and calm.
The work that she has on display at the K.K. Berge Gallery in downtown Granite Falls if full of blue, green and red hues that showcase her watercolor and pastel landscapes, acrylic and oil abstracts, and watercolor on yupo paper which is a fairly new and very interesting technique.
There will be a reception recognizing Conroy on Thursday, Oct. 17 from 7 to 9 p.m. This exhibit will be on display from Oct. 7 to Oct. 31 and is sponsored by the Granite Area Arts Council.
