Featured in the Gallery at the library during September will be the art of Jessica Ifshin. She will display paintings and abstract work and will host a reception Saturday, Sept. 6, from 2 to 4 p.m.

Ifshin was born and raised in the Bronx, N.Y. After being dragged to all of New York City’s museums year after year, she soon realized that she was undeniably a part of something greater than herself – art. She attended the performing, visual, and liberal arts college, State University of New York at Purchase in Purchase, N.Y., where she began her formal study of the arts.

She was living in San Diego when she accepted a position as “Acupuncturist on Staff” at New Milford Hospital (working primarily in the Diebold Family Cancer Center with oncology patients). She is a licensed acupuncturist, certified diplomate in Oriental medicine, and practitioner of East Asian medicine. She maintains a thriving private clinical practice in New Milford. Central to her treatment approach is educating her patients about balance – body/mind/spirit – and empowering them to be responsible participants in the continual cultivation of their own overall health and wellbeing.
