It’s New to Us by Jean Stratton

CREATIVE JOURNEY: “We want to encourage people to treat themselves and get something not found elsewhere; something with a story and history. We’re interested in unusual treasures. There’s really no place like ours; it’s uplifting, imaginative, and exciting.” Artist Fay Sciarra (left) and her business partner and sister-in-law Linda Sciarra are excited about the opening of their new gallery, Umbrella.

Art of Fay Sciarra, Antiques and Home Furnishings Highlight Umbrella Gallery at Tomato Factory

A visit to Umbrella at the Tomato Factory is a visual pleasure. Filled with the colorful and intriguing art of Fay Sciarra and an eclectic selection of antiques and home furnishings from a number of dealers, this “gallery and more” is a haven for collectors, buyers, and browsers.

Located on the second floor of the 100-year-old Tomato Factory, an antiques cooperative at 2 Somerset Street in Hopewell, Umbrella is the perfect setting for her art, says Ms. Sciarra.

DEFINITIVE DESIGN: “I enjoy the diversity of working on a lot of different projects. I’ve always been fascinated by the process. You start with a blank piece of paper, and then sometime later, you can be walking through the building.” Joshua Zinder, AIA, LEED AP, founder and principal of Joshua Zinder Architect + Design, is shown on the Princeton University campus.

Joshua Zinder Architect + Design Is a Full-Service, Multidisciplinary Firm

Growing up, Joshua Zinder lived in “a world of Lego.” He loved building, putting things together, seeing all those magical pieces become a whole.

It cannot be said that Lego alone led him straight to architecture, but it did play a role. The real turning point came in the seventh grade, when he was required to take a course in mechanical drawing.
