It’s the first solo art show in Alaska for oil painter Sally Stromberg, who moved to Mitkof Island about a year and a half ago. She’s been painting for five years. This show is called “Joie de Vie” and features 37 oil paintings from the past nine months. Joe Viechnicki spoke with Stromberg about her work.
