ISU Oboler Library exhibiting artwork of artist Elise Erlandson

Posted January 26, 2010

The Idaho State University Eli M. Oboler Library is exhibiting the artwork of local artist Elise Erlandson through the end of February.

Her work is included in an exhibit located in the display area of the library’s first floor near the reference desk. 

Erlandson has been involved in painting as well as other art mediums for nearly eight years. She has won first- and second-place prizes at local competitions for her work and has been noted by other local artists as an aspiring talent.

Aside from the time she spends on her artwork, Erlandson is also a full-time student at Idaho State University, and has been attending the University for about two and a half years. She aspires to complete her bachelor’s degree and is interested in using it to become an art critic for an art or music magazine. She generally works with the realism of art – each of her subjects are lifelike in nature. However, she still appreciates abstract art, and hopes to perfect that style as well as realism. 

“Regardless of whether or not I use my education to pursue my art career, my art will always be at the very least a hobby of mine, and will always be incorporated into my life,” Erlandson said.

The exhibit is free and open to the public and may be viewed during regular library hours: Monday-Thursday, 7:30 a.m. to midnight; Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Saturday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Sunday, noon to midnight.
