The Summit Free Public Library and the Visual Arts Center of New Jersey announce an exhibition of works by Eric M. Bienstock & Jane S. Barrow in THE GALLERY at the Summit Free Public Library, August 1 through September 30, 2011. 

Eric M. Bienstock, Ph.D. & Jane S. Barrow, C.S.W., Millburn residents, are husband and wife watercolorists. Twenty-eight of their paintings will be on display in an exhibit they have titled “Country Views”, inspired by the scenery of upstate New York where they vacation. Eric and Jane have been painting in watercolor together for about fifteen years. As students of Nancy Korde at the Visual Arts Center of New Jersey in Summit, they have developed their own personal styles. Eric prefers landscapes with old buildings, roads and lakes; Jane leans towards a more impressionistic interpretation of skies, land and water. They have even painted a piece jointly, which Jane started and Eric finished.

Neither Eric nor Jane has any formal training in art, having started out as rank beginners in Nancy Korde's watercolor class. According to Eric, "If I can learn to paint, despite my color blindness and inability to draw a straight line without a ruler, anyone can!" Eric teaches Critical Thinking and Mathematics at the college level; Jane is a psychotherapist in private practice.

The exhibit is open to the public during regular library hours.  THE GALLERY is a public-private partnership.  The Library is located at 75 Maple Street, Summit, New Jersey and is open Monday to Wednesday, 9:00am to 9:00pm; Thursday, Friday and Saturday, 9:00am to 5:00pm; and Sunday, 1:00pm to 5:00pm.  The Library is closed on Sundays in July and August.  For more information, go to www.summitlibrary.org.

Is FAANG Long in the Tooth?

Investors love to rally around a stock story. Today it’s all about the FAANG stocks. Facebook (FB), Amazon (AMZN), Apple (AAPL), Netflix (NFLX) and Google (GOOG) are a major reason why the S&P 500 rallied so much in 2017. Mr. Market is convinced the FAANGs are impervious to a sell-off. “Its different this time” is ringing loud and clear, but will the outcome really be that ...
