The current display art area at the Idaho State University Oboler Library will feature art by Sandra Greba through June 30.
Recognized for her botanical accuracy, she is a self-taught artist who strives to capture the intricate details and fragile beauty inherent in flowers and birds.
Greba was born in the kitchen of quarters No. 5, Gulkana Airfield, Alaska. She spent her early childhood in the rural parts of the state, in places such as Kotzebue and Aniak. She then moved to Oklahoma City where she completed her schooling and worked as a florist and bridal consultant.
Sandra returned to Alaska in 1980 and currently resides in Sitka where she paints and operates a bed and breakfast named after her daughter, Hannah.
“There is such a wonderful order and endless variety in God’s creation,” she said. “Living in Southeast Alaska has provided me with years of inspiration and it is my hope that my work reflects my love of its natural beauty.”
Sandra is the mother of Hannah Keller, who is currently attending Idaho State University, and had her art on display in the Oboler Library gallery a couple of months ago.
The exhibit is free and open to the public and may be viewed during regular library hours: Monday-Thursday, 7:30 a.m. to 9 p.m.; Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Saturday and Sunday, 1 to 5 p.m. The library is closed May 16-17.
