A budding watercolor painter from Palermo was selected to have her artwork grace the office of state Sen. Patricia Ritchie through her “Senator Patty Ritchie Celebrates Local Artists” program, an initiative organized to highlight local talent from Central and Northern New York.
Nearly two dozen artists have been featured through the program, which showcases local artists from the region with free public displays of artwork in the senator’s district offices in Oswego, Watertown and Ogdensburg.
“From painters to photographers, our region is home to so many individuals with a broad range of talents,” Ritchie said. “I’m so pleased to be able to celebrate their creativity and draw attention to those who are creating works of art right here in our backyard.”
Phyllis DiSalvo of Palermo, who began watercolor painting in 2008, has her work exhibited now in Ritchie’s office at 46 E. Bridge St., Oswego. DiSalvo continues to grow as an artist by learning new techniques using different types of media.
