For information, call May at 802-824-6624 or Priscilla at 802-824-6867. Zuber will celebrate his centennial this September in Florida, where he began his life as artist in 1973 at the age of 60. He paints landscape and still lifes in acrylic.

Born in Germany in 1914, his family moved to US, where he received most of his education. He became an educator at the Cherry Lawn School in Darien Conn., under the tutelage of Christina Staell von Holstein and her husband, Boris Bogoslovsky. His connections to Landgrove began in the 1940s when he met his wife Tatania and befriended Landgrove residents through the Bogoslovsky family and the school. Zuber also served in the US Army as second Liuetenant during World War II.

The paintings in this exhibit are from the collection of Anthony Wood, the grandson of the Bogoslovskys. Anthony Wood and Anna Dibble hung the exhibit. The show will be open for ten weeks beginning August 31 and after opening can be seen on Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
