    ART @ your library

    Paintings by Jeff Belpanno of Hightstown, NJ Jeff Belpanno is a self-taught artist who began painting while on vacation in Sedona, Arizona. The beauty of the landscape was his inspiration. He uses acrylic paints and oil pastels to create his works. Since being diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 1998 at age 40, painting gives him an outlet from the many symptoms he experiences daily. He is an incurable optimist and inspiration to friends and family. The exhibit can be viewed from January 4 through February 24, 2016 during regular library hours at the Hickory Corner Branch of the Mercer County Library System, 138 Hickory Corner Road, East Windsor, NJ, 08520.
