Artist Barbara Delligatti, of Ona, West Virginia, currently has 22 original paintings on display at the Ironton Briggs Lawrence County Library.

Her work touches on a wide variety of subjects and painting styles, however, her favorite subjects to paint are landscapes and flowers.

Delligatti has owned and operated The Upstairs Gallery in Ashland, Kentucky, for the past 14 and a half years, but has decided to close the gallery. She will however continue to do framing and teach painting classes in watercolor and acrylics.

Delligatti began painting in oils in 1985, and in watercolors in 2000. She has been an active member of the Tri-State Arts Association since 2001, and is also a member of the West Virginia Watercolor Society.

She is a well-known artist throughout the Tri-State area. And all of her paintings are for sale.
