Ocean County Library Jackson Branch To Feature Art by Sue Kolb and Robert Jenkin

December 21, 2021

JACKSON – Renowned Jackson Township artists Sue Kolb and Robert Jenkin will return to the Ocean County Library Jackson Branch in January, to stage an exhibit that will remain on display through March.

Both artists have exhibited in the Jackson Branch, Westlake Golf and Country Club in Jackson, and other local venues. Retired from daily employment, they continue to refine and expand their talents.

Sue Kolb developed her skills with the guidance of Hungarian artist Bella Schmidt, and also of Monmouth County’s Sandy Huston, Steven Assael and Scott Nickerson. As a member of the Laurelton Art Guild of Brick, she won Best In Show in a 2014 exhibit.

“I originally took an interest in art, sketching with charcoal, pastels and finally painting with oils many years ago,” Ms. Kolb said. “I feel it’s never too late to pursue again in retirement. All you need is the desire, more than the talent.”

Mr. Jenkin, a self-taught artist and former teacher, incorporated art and musicianship into his former role as owner of Knolltop Country Day Camp in East Brunswick. “I still paint with enthusiasm,” he said, adding that they regularly share and critique their styles.

The exhibit is free and open to the public. For more information, contact the Jackson Branch, 732-928-4400, or visit
