GRANGEVILLE — Gloria Teats is the featured artist for Border Days July 204 at the Bicentennial Historical Museum, 305 N. College Street, 1 to 5 p.m., each day.
Teats of White Bird will have her art displayed. She began her formal art training in 1977, studying at Walla Walla Community College and at the Valley Art Center. Raised in the mountains of central Idaho, she takes her painting inspiration from this region’s splendor. Ten years later she began teaching painting. She is known for her landscapes in oils, and favors using a limited palette but stressing color. She has taught oil painting for more than 30 years, and currently teaches landscape painting workshops, and fall and spring classes.
“I paint what I love which is the mountains, rivers and wilderness in Central Idaho,” Teats said.
