Rick Delanty

CAC Artist Member Rick J. Delanty has recently been elected to the Salmagundi Club as an artist member. He has also been selected as one of the “mainland” participating artists in the 2017 Maui Plein Air Invitational, for the second time.
The event will involve 26 artists selected from both the mainland and the islands to paint on Maui between February 18-26, with a culminating exhibition of their plein air works at the Royal Lahaina Resort.
