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.

Paintings from gifted artist are featured in window display at what was once Dress Barn.
Run (or drive)—do not walk—to the former site of Dress Barn in the Westborough Shopping Plaza off Lyman Street. Displayed in the window are six large-scale oil canvases by Hopkinton's 28-year-old Dustin Neece, who one day may be a famous artist.

Some of Neece's art will also be displayed at the Art and Frame Emporium. The exhibit will run through May 24, but may go longer. A small reception was held at the Emporium on Thursday, May 3 to launch this project. Turner said, "…
