Grieb’s Pharmacy Presents ‘Off-the-Wall Holiday Art Sale’ of Peter Saverine’s Works

Grieb’s Pharmacy, a Darien landmark in its original location since 1947, “provides a highly visible space, perfect for displaying local artwork,” according to Deb Hibben, who is the owner with her husband, Chuck. .

As part of their ongoing exhibition of local art for the benefit of local non-profit organizations, Deb, a Darien native and artist, was invited to return by Deb to show and sell more of her popular coastal artwork. .

Saverine’s collection, which he calls “Darien, I love the sound of that,” includes eight 18 x 24 inch canvas prints inspired by local scenes. Each artwork will be on sale for $ 300 as part of what Deb calls an “off the wall holiday art sale” so buyers can take the artwork home for the holidays.

Due to the success of the previous exhibition which benefited Darien Post 53, the artist and the store owner will jointly donate $ 50 from each painting sold to benefit Darien’s pantry person-to-person. The exhibit will be on hold until the end of January and will change as individual pieces sell out.
