Wilda Sunberg pic
Wilda has been painting for as long as she can remember. In 1949 she received a National Scholastic Scholarship to attend the Albright Art School of the Buffalo Fine Arts Academy. In 1951 she married fellow artist Carl Sundberg and began teaching children’s classes at The Art Center of Erie/Erie Art Museum.  Every Thursday Wilda would meet her students on Presque Isle to paint, and if the weather did not cooperate they retreated to the Erie Art Museum classroom. Paintings were done and friendships were formed. The group still meets occasionally to paint except Wilda, who is retired now. Wilda and Carl were founding members of the Northwest Pennsylvania Artists Association. She has been in countless exhibits. Wilda Sundberg is a community treasure.
