Local Artist’s Work Hangs in Athens
Local artist Carole Boller says her painting, “Waiting,” was selected for display at the U.S. embassy in Athens, Greece.
“I chose Boller’s artwork because it perfectly fits my desire to feature work from my home state of California,” Geoffrey Pyatt, the new U.S. ambassador to Greece, said in a statement.
Boller said she was contacted by a curator for the American Institute of Physics, in Washington, D.C., whose chief executive Robert Brown is a collector.
Boller, who says her work is in a French museum and private collections in England and Italy, also has created public art in her hometown, a temporary mural for the Verizon building downtown and an addition to the city’s banner collection.
