The Oboler Library will host a reception for photographer Linda Groom and her work on Wednesday, January 20, from 4:30 to 6:00 pm in the Library’s exhibit area on the first floor.
This event is free and open to the public. Meet the artist, visit with others who appreciate art, enjoy some light refreshment, while viewing the varied and beautiful images that Ms. Groom has created.
Linda Groom’s stunning photographs reflect her worldwide travels, from Idaho to Burma and beyond. An Idaho native, she graduated from the University of Idaho, taught junior high, owned a yarn store, and spent nearly 20 years as a real estate associate broker. She is on the Boards of Directors for the Idaho State Civic Symphony and the Pocatello Art Center, and is a member of Pocatello Rotary. Linda found her true passion behind the lens; beauty, she writes, can be found everywhere. This exhibit includes images of the ancient temples in Palmyra, Syria taken by Ms. Groom just a few years before the UNESCO World Heritage site was destroyed by ISIS bombers this Fall.
The art exhibit may be viewed at any time the library is open, through February 29, 2016; see the library’s webpage at www.isu.edu/library for the library’s hours.
