The Library Gallery is hosting two exhibitors in September 2014, Fred Dammont and Lynne Graizel

Frederick Dammont is a professional physicist and award-winning amateur photographer. His photographic exhibit is named “From Sea to Sea Along the Pyrenees”. This work reflects his interests in the natural, cultural and aesthetic nature of the geographic areas of his travels.

The other exhibitor, long time Teaneck resident, Lynne Graizel, found her passion in making jewelry after losing her job in 2008.
