Delbert Park is the son of ordained ministers who grew up in East Palo Alto, Benicia, Hughson and Patterson. He holds a B.A. from San Jose State University and M.A. from Chico State University. A retired junior high school teacher, Mr. Park has been exhibiting professionally working for over 40 years across the region. Curator, Vicki Park is Del’s wife and creative collaborator.
“I’m sharing work from high school to the present. While my media of choice is oil on canvas, I’ve worked in drawing, pastel, printmaking, wood, glass and metal. Over time my work endeavors have sought to create and convey a mood.”
