Grieb’s Pharmacy, a Darien landmark in its original location since 1947, “provides a highly visible space perfect to showcase local artwork” according to Deb Hibben, who is the owner with her husband, Chuck.
— an announcement from the artist
As part of their ongoing exhibit of local art to benefit local nonprofit organizations, Darien native and artist Peter Saverine was invited back by Deb to show and sell more of his popular coastal artwork.
Saverine’s collection which he calls, “Darien, I like the Sound of it,” features eight 18 x 24-inch prints on canvas inspired by local scenes. Each work will be for sale for $300 in what Deb is calling an “Off-the-Wall Holiday Art Sale” so purchasers can take home the artwork for holiday giving.
Due to the success of the previous show that benefitted Darien Post 53, the artist and store owner will make a joint donation of $50 from each painting sold to benefit Darien Person-to-Person food pantry. The exhibit will hang until the end of January and will change as individual pieces sell.
Since opening its doors in 1947, Grieb’s Pharmacy, has proudly served seven generations of families in the community with a commitment to outstanding customer service.
The family-owned pharmacy has become a landmark in downtown Darien where customers depend on our knowledgeable team of pharmacists, technicians, and staff to offer expertise and professional advice.
Chuck and Debi Hibben are the Owners of Grieb’s Pharmacy. Together, they live and raised three children in the Darien community who, through the years, have all worked at the store making it truly a family business. www.griebspharmacy.com
