Local photographers’ work to be displayed in exhibit at City Hall
Ash at the end of a cigarette is frozen in time, just like the expression on longtime Delta resident Andy Mallett’s face.
Mallett died in 2007, but Daily Sentinel photographer Gretel Daugherty captured the essence of the man who lived in an old roller rink filled with car parts and beautifully restored vintage automobiles in his portrait.
This photograph, as well as timeless snapshots of our community as seen in the pages of The Daily Sentinel and the Grand Junction Free Press, will be on display Friday, Jan. 2 through the end of March on the first and second floors of the Grand Junction City Hall, 250 N. Fifth Street.
The opening reception for the new exhibit is Friday from 5 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at City Hall. The event is open to the public.
You’ve seen them around town, big camera bags in tow and lenses the length of an arm — Sentinel photographers Christopher Tomlinson, Dean Humphrey and Daugherty, as well as Buddy Bair from the Free Press. Now see some of their glossy photographs on a large, full-color scale. Sculpture artist Mickie Harshman will also have ceramics displayed in the exhibit.
Who knows, maybe you or someone you know is in one of the pictures. City Hall is open weekdays from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Most of the artwork is for sale.
The Commission on Arts and Culture and the City Hall Art Exhibit Committee organize the quarterly rotating display of artwork by local artists.
