Delane McWhorter

Hiddenite, NC – The Hiddenite Arts & Heritage Center proudly presents a stunning art exhibit featuring works created by Delane McWhorter as part of its Black History Month Celebration. Delane, a lifelong resident of Alexander County, previously studied art under Sandra Gwaltney while attending Alexander County Central High School. Despite her talent and success in the class, she placed her passion aside upon graduation to pursue a means of making a living. It was not until a young relative challenged her to a “draw off” in recent years that Delane rediscovered her love for creating works of art. Since then, she’s been creating artwork on a near-daily basis, utilizing pencil, colored pencil, paint marker, and graphite. The community was able to enjoy previous art exhibits by Delane at the Alexander County Library Stony Point Branch and the Multicultural Festival at Courthouse Park in Taylorsville. Delane’s favorite quote, “ART is not what you see but what you make others see” (author unknown), captures her artistic philosophy.

The public is invited to view her works throughout the month of February at the Hiddenite Center’s Lucas Mansion. The Center is committed to supporting North Carolina artists and provides free admission to all its exhibits.
