Area citizens display art at Korean Art Exhibition
Nearly 20 Korean artists displayed their work at an exhibition last weekend at the Korean Community of south Alabama offices in Daleville. The ancient mode of painting with ink pigments dates back some 500 years, according to one student, Kison Ryu, of Luverne. He said the trained eye can look at Mooninhwa paintings and know if a beginner or a master painted the picture. He said it’s all about the brush strokes, the simplicity and the characteristics of what’s in the soul of the painter. Ryu said during the first few hundred years of the art style, only black ink was used with water, making the pigment lighter or darker, but as society progressed, younger generations have added color ink pigments to their works, which are created on a special type of rice paper. Mooninhwa “was first painted by the scholars—noble Koreans—who were not professional artists, and then eventually ordinary people in Korea began to paint with the techniques,” said Ryu. “It is to focus on the inner world of the person rather than just draw an outline of something, like a plant.”

DIG offers unique gardening opportunity to Daleville area
Play is not always about sports and games; it might also be gardening for some.  The Daleville Recreation Department has a solution for anyone wanting to grow their own food, food for others, or maybe even use growing food or flowers as a teaching tool for students in public, private, or home schools. The recreation department has an area behind the center called ”The Dig.” The department was awarded a grant in August by the Wiregrass Resource Conservation  and Development Council (RC&D) to build the area which consists of 30 raised and boxed garden plots, open for anyone to come and garden.

'Play in Daleville, there's lots to do'
This is the first part in a three-part series looking at the city of Daleville’s slogan Shop, Dine, Play. Back in the summer, people began to notice bright new banners flying at the two major intersections in the city. The banners give center stage to Daleville’s new logo, better representing the “City of Possibilities,” according to Mayor Claudia Wigglesworth. She wants everyone to know just how much Daleville has to offer when it comes to playing, shopping and dining. This first part will look at “play.” From pee wee football and basketball to cheerleading and dance, there are plenty of leisure activities in the City of  Possibilities." Officials want the citizens of Daleville and those who live nearby to know there is no need to travel to other communities to find things to do—kids or adults.
