Sally Rhone-Kubarek was born in Bucyrus, Ohio into a military family. As a child, she moved frequently, living in many States and for 3 years in Japan. She completed High School in Pennsylvania and enrolled in the College of Fine Arts at Syracuse University. After 2 years she transferred into Liberal Arts and completed a BA in Psychology. She married and in 1969 moved to Europe. For 37 years she lived with her family in various European countries and Morocco. During these years she completed a MA in Administration from Ball State University. In addition, she returned to Art by taking many workshops and courses in Europe and the United States. She has always been fascinated with the many means of producing art and has worked in many different mediums; oil, pastel, drawing, acrylics, watercolor, egg tempera, collage, screen printing, monotype, ceramic glazes on tiles, sculpture, and combinations of all the former. Her subject matter has been just as varied, though her favorite subject has been the human figure. She exhibited her work in both group and solo shows in Germany and Italy.
In 2004 Sally and her husband returned to the United States. They now live in Fredericksburg Virginia with its vibrant art community. She joined Art First and Fredericksburg Center for the Creative Arts, where she served on the board for 3 years. She has exhibited with both and had several one person shows. She also served for a few years on the Gallery Advisory Council for the University of Mary Washington’s DuPont and Ridderhof-Martin Galleries. Sally’s first local award was in 2008, with a first in the Uniquely Fredericksburg juried show. More awards have followed through the years. However, her greatest happiness is having found a home in a community with an active art scene. She has been able to add pottery, encaustics, and linoleum block prints to her repertoire and looks forward to more.
