SUMMIT, NJ -The Summit Free Public Library and the Visual Arts Center of New Jersey have collaborated to bring “Vantage Points,” a collection of photography by Linda Jacobs, in 'The Gallery' at the Summit Free Public Library. The exhibition runs through May 31.
Jacobs, who is a resident of Maplewood, received a Bachelor of Science in Design and Environmental Analysis from Cornell University. Her photographs have been exhibited at the Monmouth Museum, Viridian Artists in Chelsea, Aljira Center for Contemporary Art, Sumei Multidisciplinary Arts, Arts Guild New Jersey, Studio Montclair Galleries, Visual Arts Center of New Jersey, The Watchung Arts Center, and the Paper Mill Playhouse.
Of her work, Jacobs said, “Capturing the movement of light and shadow from an uncommon vantage point reveals the beautiful and unexpected within the familiar. The texture of a building facade, seen from below, is reminiscent of the wings of a bird. An unfinished building, viewed from within, frames a familiar skyline as an abstraction. The underside of a bridge reveals girders and utility cables exploding in a celebration of line and color."
She adds, "The goal of my photographs is to make these moments tangible. By seeking out unusual vantage points, I discover occasions of visual delight, expressed in color, pattern, light and shadow.”
The exhibit is open to the public during regular library hours.
The Summit Free Public Library is located at 75 Maple Street in Summit.
