Resident's Landscape Art Visits New Locale

Ella Delyanis has an exhibit at the Art and Frame Emporium for the first time.

Art admirers have seen Westborough resident Ella Delyanis' landcapes in a new locale this month.

The Art and Frame Emporium is displaying Delyanis' work in September for the first time, she says.

The Westborough Shopping Center shop has 22 of the paintings displayed. Eight of those are in the former Dress Barn windows.

"I'm always looking around for new outlets," says Delyanis, a Worcester Art Museum faculty member.

Delyanis says she has painted landscapes for a long time, starting with "fairly abstract landscapes" during the mid-1970s.

She then "worked my way back to a more realistic style."

"My art education was very traditional, very focused on drawings and design. That was all from the human figure," Delyanis says.
 
"But I eventually gravitated toward the landscape, because it's ever present. There's always something to do."

Delyanis says she sopped painting for a number of years, starting in the mid-1980s, and just did pastels.

She resumed painting about five years ago.
 
"I didn't want to be 85 years old, never having gone back to painting. Now, I'm going back and forth between oil and pastel," Delyanis says.
