Throughout the month of February 2024, the Somerset County Library System of New Jersey’s (SCLSNJ) Montgomery branch will be exhibiting the art of local artist Samia Hafiz Shaaban.

Following a forty-two year engineering career, Shaaban retired into her long-awaited arts passion – acrylic painting on canvas. Shaaban’s paintings range from impressionistic landscape and still life to abstract expressionism. Her work portrays a fascination of nature’s harmonious colors as well as the fluidity of forms and patterns.

This exhibit will be on display through February 29, 2024. The Montgomery branch is located at 100 Community Drive in Skillman. For questions, call (908) 458-8430 or email To discover all SCLSNJ has to offer, visit or connect with SCLSNJ on FacebookInstagramX (formerly Twitter), or YouTube.
