Husband and Wife Exhibit Paintings at Summit Library

December 9, 2013 at 9:43 AM

SUMMIT, NJ - The Summit Free Public Library and the Visual Arts Center of New Jersey are currently featuring “People, Places and Things”, an exhibition of paintings by wife and husband,Grace and Michael Zambelli, in The Gallery at the Summit Free Public Library through January 31, 2014.   The Zambellis work in unique styles, with South Jersey serving as the inspiration for much of their subject matter.

Using acrylics on canvas, Grace Zambelli captures the mood and nuances of everyday life.  The unique perspectives in her paintings invite the viewer’s involvement with her subject matter.  Because of her compositions, the viewer may share the viewpoint of an object on the table, another person in the room, or a spectator peering over a ledge.  She is a New Jersey Licensed Psychologist, and an Art Therapist, who has keen interest in art, psychology and helping others. 

Michael Zambelli's paintings capture the emotional aspects of abandoned or overlooked objects, with a focus on old vehicles, products and structures.  “The way the sun hits it, the way the rust transforms it or the way its beauty and personality goes unnoticed are what attracts me to a particular subject matter,” he said.  His primary objective is to capture the emotional aspects of these artifacts..  Most of his images emphasize the play of light and shadow that help define the object’s form and convey the mystery, history or the sense of sadness that is often missed by the casual observer.  His high school fascination with designing automobiles led him to a career in industrial design.  Throughout his 35 plus years of designing products, everything from telephones for AT&T to plumbing fixtures for American Standard, he always maintained his interest in the fine arts.

The exhibit is open to the public during regular library hours, Monday to Thursday, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.; Friday and Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Sunday, 1 - 5 p.m.  The Library is located at 75 Maple Street, and for more information, visit

Step Right Up

Let’s make America the Greatest Show on Earth Again.


I was very sad to learn that after 146 years of big-top entertainment the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus is folding its tent and leaving town.


This comes a year after the circus, due to mounting pressures from animal rights activists, got rid of the elephants.


It is not really ...
