Jane and Rich Delcarson, both graphic artists in different mediums, will be featured at the Unitarian Universalist Art Gallery in October.
Jane and Rich moved to Door County because they felt it was a natural environment from which to easily express their talents. Their move to the peninsula followed life long careers with Rich as an automobile illustrator and Jane as a lettering artist. Rich graduated from Meinzinger Art School in Detroit, and Jane is a graduate of the American Academy of Art in Chicago. They both engaged in fine and commercial artwork. Their employment landscape includes the San Francisco Bay area, Los Angeles, Chicago and continues from their home in Fish Creek after incorporating to Del Graphics.
Their website www.DelGraphics.org exclaims “We do artwork the old-fashioned way – we draw it!”
Jane specializes in lettering and design. She has studied with teachers of international renown and is a member of the Chicago Calligraphy Collective and the Wisconsin Calligraphy Guild. She has taught calligraphy in both the Chicago area and in Door County. She also exhibits at local galleries and gift shops.
Rich is an oil painter of familiar outdoor scenes of Door County which he then reproduces. His desire is to assure that all lovers of art can enjoy a piece of art of their own. Among his range of available paintings are familiar Door County landmarks including lighthouses, Hardy Gallery, Wilsons Ice Cream Parlor as well as park and seaside views. Rich uses a lithographic and gouache technique in the duplication of his paintings. He has a particular concern for the density and balance of colors in the reproductive printing process and personally oversees the discharge of his work.
The UU Gallery is open Sundays, 11 am – 12:30 pm and Mondays 1 – 3 pm, at 10341 Hwy. 42, Ephraim. If you are interested in displaying art work, phone 920.839.2606. For more information visit www.uufdc.org.
