DAL - Heart of Delray Gallery Space
Kudos to all. Wow. Does our gallery room look great!

We are now hosting over 20 of our artists work on the walls of our gallery space in the Heart of Delray Art Gallery on Federal. Please visit and take a look. Thank you to Kathi Stamm, Howard Sherman, Terry Sherman and Dan Cianciotto the Owner and Curator of the gallery for help hanging, positioning and making the space look wonderful. This week we have also added beautiful specialty gallery walls to create a few more hanging spaces and we will be calling for a few more artists to participate! Be on the lookout for an email on how to get in the gallery and have your work shown!

We will also be planning a special gala opening event so stay tuned for more information
St. Paul’s ‘Music Meets Art’
We have launched this new indoor show program in October and we had 15 artists join us on Sunday the 20th. It was all in good fun and holds much promise to be a great venue for our artists, art sales and growth of our education scholarship program. If you are considering participation please sign up.

We will have additional space in the open courtyard that would make this indoor show magical. The Classical Music concert draws parishioners and the general public and it’s a great event to meet new art lovers!

Our next show is Sunday November 24th with a 1:30 pm setup and music beginning at 2 pm . St. Paul’s will have a busy weekend. Their ‘Treasures and Trinkets’ benefit for the St. Paul’s Mission takes place on Saturday from 8:30 am to 2:00 pm. Artists are encouraged to make a donation of artwork for the mission if you have begun to overgrow your garage storage space. It’s for a great cause and building a great relationship. St. Paul’s Community Missions is very active in Delray and we can help by donating art for sale.

Thank you for showing your support in our efforts!

As of this moment we are still hopeful that we will make the show date for November 9th & 10th. Please return your registration and insurance forms this week so we can have an accurate count of participants. We will be watching closely and will keep you informed as to park status. We appreciate your understanding and we hope to host this November show at Veteran’s Park!
