Darlis is pleased to announce new gallery representation with Dick Idol Signature Gallery, owned by Dick and Toni Idol, located in Whitefish, Montana. "They have an excellent stable of artists. My work is a departure from their usual style of Western and wildlife work. They are excited to be representing it and I am happy to be with them."
She is included in a recently published book entitled Successful Women Speak Out – A Collection of Personal Experience and Wisdom from Successful American Women, author Stan Shur, available from Amazon.com. She also has a Profile in Sculpture of the Rockies, a compilation of 97 contemporary sculptors in the Rocky Mountain Region. Her Profile includes a full page photograph of "Madame Rose". The hardcover book was published by FW Media under the auspices of Southwest Art magazine and is available through galleries and book stores. Additionally, she has been included in Southwest Art magazine four times since 1989, most recently with Profiles in their July Sculpture Editions in 2010 and 2013. Her "Chili Festival" bronze was featured in 2013, along with an ad for "Raspberries and Red Velvet".
The National Sculpture Society included a lengthy Question and Answer Profile in their July, 2013 News Bulletin, including photos of different genres of her sculpture over her lengthy career. She has won awards and recognition in every genre she has created over the years.

There will be a reference book published in 2015 entitled 100 Rocky Mountain Western Artists, Schiffer Publishing. Darlis will be included in this upcoming publication as well.
Her biography continues to be represented annually in the Marquis Who"s Who publications, specifically Who"s Who of American Women, Who"s Who in the Southwest, Who"s Who in America and Who"s Who in American Art. These particular biographical reference books can be found in public libraries. Inclusion is by nomination only and acceptance of their Board of Review.
A departure from her well known "French Lessons" is a full figure portrait of Thomas Jefferson. She used actual descriptions of him by people who personally were close to Jefferson. She used the time period when he was the third President of the United States. He was inaugurated at the age of 57. The bronze is 22.5"h, edition of 9. Her art career began with figures, so it was a return to her roots. He is an excellent and elegant rendition of a beloved American historical figure, suitable for home or office or enlarged to site specific or larger in size. He is included in the Beauty, Grace and Dignity Gallery, along with photos of the original clay sculpture on its armature, taken before molding for the bronze rendition.
It is of note she was the first woman to complete 25 consecutive years of participation in the Loveland, Colorado Art"s Council Sculpture in the Park. She has three permanent bronzes in Benson Park - "The Old Greek", "The Old Greek"s Wife" and "The View", a bas relief. "The View" is available for purchase through the Arts Council. She was one of 25 artists invited to create a relief for the show"s 25th Anniversary. They are installed in the wall of a building in the park.
Newer sculptures can be viewed in the Form and Design Gallery. Included are "Chili Festival", "Sweet Little Red Pepper", "Sweet Little Red Pear" and "Perfect Little Red Pear". The Perfect and Sweet Little Pears are primarily Artist Proofs, with only a few numbered ones still but also in the beautiful red patina. There are exactly two still available from the edition in the original patina.
Another bronze in the French Lessons series is "Raspberries and Red Velvet", a depiction of an oversized cupcake topped with raspberries. Actual raspberries were used as models, each one with its own model, edition of 25. It is shown below in the ad included in the July, 2013 Southwest Art magazine Sculpture Edition., along with the "Chili Festival" Profile.
