Sandy Delehanty in the March/April 2020 issue of ART of the WEST

Sandy Delehanty, one of our very talented watercolorists, has been featured in a wonderful article in the current issue of ART of the WEST entitled, “Hitting Their Stride”. If you aren’t sure you have seen her work in the gallery just think, giraffe eating an ice cream cone…alright!?! Sandy has definitely “hit her stride”! If you can get your hands on the magazine enjoy the article. Or you could try their website, aotw.com.

Sandy has used her watercolor skills since 1997. She had her first gallery show in 2002. She taught workshops and classes locally, and watercolor travel journaling all over the world.

Currently, Sandy is very active in the American Women Artists (AWA). She sits on the board and has earned an award of excellence from AWA. Their mission is dedicated to the inspiration, celebration, and encouragement of women in the visual fine arts. Their goal is to increase the professional opportunities for women in the visual fine arts field which leads to greater inclusion for women in the fine arts community.

Twice her work has been accepted into international juried exhibitions by the American Watercolor Society.

Sandy is a signature member in the California Watercolor Association.

If you can’t tell by now…we, at Auburn Old Town Gallery, are proud to have Sandy Delehanty as a member of our gallery.

A quote from Sandy, “I want people to get a sense of joy or peace when looking at my work. I have so much fun creating it. I want people to experience some of the joy I had when I did it. I want the painting to touch them in some way, personally or emotionally.”

Happy New Year, How about a Date Night in January?

Holiday parties are winding down. Now for some time to yourselves. How about a little shopping spree at Auburn Old Town Gallery. Our hours for this Winter are 10am to 6pm seven days a week. This month we are featuring the art of our newest members, as well as, adding fresh new pieces of art for the new year!

After a pleasant visit with the artist on duty, and if you feel so inclined, take a short stroll to Old Town’s newest restaurant, CRUDO for dinner (where Bootleggers use to be). You may need a reservation. I had a very pleasant and tasty dinner over the holidays there.  So if you want or need an evening out of the house try visiting Auburn Old Town Gallery and CRUDO.

Or make it a lunch date and then head over to the gallery. Either way I think they are a good pairing, Auburn Old Town Gallery and CRUDO.
