The Delta Senior Center is pleased to display works of art by Anastasia Kenner in the dining hall located at 247 Meeker Street.
Kenner was born in New York but grew up in Windsor. Her parents were artists, her father in woodworking and her mother in folk art. They encouraged her from a very early age to see the world in perspectives that translate into artistic endeavor and helped her with her first efforts.
She is an engineer in telecommunications and for 22 years, her career path took her to Washington, Oregon and North Dakota before returning to Colorado. In her spare time, she taught herself artistic technique by experimenting with watercolors, oils and acrylics. Recently she began working with alcohol inks. She says, "This is a source of joy I have never felt with other mediums because of the vibrancy of the color. Art is the passion that releases the stress of my engineering job. Every day I wake up looking for the beauty in this colorful world to mimic on canvas."
The display of Kenner's work at the senior center is impressive and represents her talent in a variety of styles. Her work will be on display through May.
On Tuesday, Sept. 11, the Delta County Board of Commissioners called a special meeting to consider the board's response to the Bureau of Land Management's preliminary Environmental Assessment (EA) concerning the lease parcels proposed for the December BLM sale.
Several people from the North Fork were present to provide input.
