Myron Sahlberg


As a young boy in rural Northwestern Minnesota, Myron longed to see a great painting with his own eyes. The summer he turned 17, he saw great master paintings for the first time at the Minneapolis Institute of Art.

During 1976-1996, Myron created hundreds of illustrations for magazines, books, greeting cards, university sports programs, and advertising accounts. Myron taught drawing, painting and illustration in the Communication Art and Design department at the Alexandria Technical and Community College from 1985-2013.

Myron’s professional artist career began in 1990, beginning with commissioned portraits and other painting subjects for galleries and shows. He has done many public paintings and drawing demonstrations. He has studied painting with these excellent artists: Pat Jerde, Richard Whitney, John Howard Sanden, Bonita Roberts, and Carolyn Anderson. “I am grateful for the unique and personal influence each of these artists have had on my painting skill and understanding.”

Myron has exhibited in fine art shows across the country such as , American Miniature Show at Settlers West Gallery, Tucson, AZ, Guest Juror Show at Lake Region Arts Council Gallery, Fergus Falls, MN, A Solo Show at Kaddatz Gallery, Fergus Falls, MN, Mountain Oyster Club Contemporary Western Art Show & Sale, Tucson, AZ.
