Lon & Wilhelmina Shelton & Claude Smith are three local artists that will have their work on display at the Deming Art Center from September 1-28, 2019. Lon and Willy Shelton have both had a camera in hand since they were kids. Using film, developing a lot of bad shots could become expensive so they learned to concentrate on composition and lighting. Upon retiring they moved to Deming and loved how beautiful the skies and mountains were.​ Although they take photo-trips, they don’t really have to travel very far to get some great shots—their backyard is a photographer’s dream. Their "wildlife sanctuary" has become a favorite place for them to capture some unusual and amazing shots. From hummingbirds to roadrunners that Willy hand feeds, you couldn’t ask for a better place to capture nature at its best!

There will be an artist reception on Sunday, September 1, 2019 from 1-3PM. The Deming Art Center is located at 100 S. Gold St. in Deming. The hours are 10AM – 4PM, Monday – Saturday, Closed Labor Day. For more information check our website, , call us at 575-546-3663 or visit our FB page.
