Delanty’s artwork has been accepted into two national painting exhibitions showing this summer. “The Elegance of Creation,” a 14-by-11-inch oil painting, has been selected for the Oil Painters of America’s Western Juried Exhibition, to be presented at the Wild Horse Gallery in Steamboat Springs, Colorado from Aug. 7 and Sept. 7. His painting “Hideaway, Thousand Steps,” has been selected for the International Society of Acrylic Painters’ 18th Annual Open Exhibition at Studios on the Park Galleries in Paso Robles, California from Aug. 1 to Aug. 23.
