Diane Gallo Exhibits Pastels in The Gallery at Summit Public Library

The Summit Free Public Library and the Visual Arts Center of New Jersey announce an exhibition of pastels by Summit resident Diane Gallo in THE GALLERY at the Summit Free Public Library, October 1 through November 30, 2010.

Diane Gallo began to seriously explore the visual arts in high school, inspired by a teacher who taught her to look at things in different ways. In college, she moved her focus of study to Art History, but in post-graduate work, she returned to painting and drawing. She continued these studies at the Visual Arts Center of New Jersey over the years, beginning an exploration of the pastel medium about five years ago.

"Even as a child, I loved 'making' art," Gallo says. "I always had a sketch pad nearby to catch a flower in bloom or draw a face that caught my eye. My work in pastels is about exploring the medium and what it can do and what I can do with it. After five years, and several wonderful instructors, I am still learning new ways to use it to express my wonder and delight in the world around me."

She is also returning to acrylics, only now using this medium in a more representational way rather than a purely abstract one, as she did previously. "One must always keep learning new ways!" she comments.

The exhibit is open to the public during regular library hours. The Summit Free Public Library is located at 75 Maple Street, and is open Monday through Wednesday, 9:00 AM to 9:00 PM and Thursday through Saturday, 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM, and Sunday 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM. For more information, go to or call 908-273-0350.
