Fair on the Square

Fridays in July in Delhi….7/3, 7/10, 7/17 and 7/24.  Charge to exhibit is $5.  Set-up is at 5 PM.  You do not have to commit to every Friday, but you may want to consider joining us as the crowds are great and we have done well selling.  If you don’t wish to sell art, at least come and sit for a while and talk to those who drop by.  The community loves us and enjoys talking to members.

Also be thinking about exhibiting at the Harvest Festival in Delhi, to be held at the end of September.  More details will follow in a future newsletter.

Theme Show--"Celebrate!"

Have you dropped by lately on our web page?  Visits continue to grow and for those who participate in the Rotating Artist Program, it continues to be a great resource for advertising of their art.  Remember…if you are a Rotating Artist member, you can have some of your work published on the web page.  For more information, contact our web master, Kay Parisi-Hampel at 363-7303.

Fundraiser--October 16th

We only have one fundraiser each year---selling Wilson’s BBQ chicken in Delhi.  We receive a portion of the proceeds that day, thanks to the generosity of Niles Wilson and family.  We’ve been assigned October 16th this year, from 10-3, in the parking lot of the old Great American in Delhi.  Please mark that date on your calendar now.  The booth must be manned by DAG members.  Come sit for an hour at our booth and help out.  If you can’t sit, please come into town and buy some chicken that day


Painted cows at the Dairyfest this year will be done by children mentored by an adult.  DAG will be represented by two cows this year.  Our four members are:  Elizabeth Niebanck who was mentored by Susan Priest, and Quinn Kelly who was mentored by Jayne Harris.
