On Saturday, August 3, from 3:30 to 5 pm, all are invited to an art reception at the West Tisbury library to honor the work of artist Anna-Maria Strömberg. According to a press release, this exhibit features colorful photographs of subjects and scenes from nature. Strömberg’s photography will be on display in the library’s community room throughout the month of August. The reception is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served. 

“My decision to become a photographer was when I got my Nikon F1 film camera from my father,” Strömberg said. “I started taking pictures of everything I saw, mostly nature but also people. I began my studies at Gotland’s School of Photography in Sweden, and as my knowledge grew, so did my skill and desire. I moved to the U.S., where I completed my studies, graduating from the Art Institute of Boston with a B.F.A., majoring in photography.

“After my studies I started my business, Strömberg Photography, where I was photographing commercial work, weddings, portraits, and events; but I always came back to my work of nature. Nature reminds me where we all came from. Nothing is, or has to be perfect. It’s a place where I am allowed to use all my senses without judgments.”
