Ridgewood resident Dr. Allen Schneiderman is exhibiting several sculptures in Bergen County at the Belskie Museum of Art in Closter. The exhibit, “The Doctor as an Artist,” includes oils, watercolors, prints, photography and sculpture by 18 doctors and dentists.

The opening reception was held on Sept. 8 and featured jazz guitarist Francis Forte. The show will run through Sept. 29. Museum hours are Saturday and Sundays 1 to 5 p.m. with free admission. A similar exhibition by doctors a year ago received rave reviews as they demonstrated a high level of artistic expertise.
“People say the animals I sculpt seem to have movement,” said Schneiderman. He began sculpting shortly after retiring from a teaching career as professor of dentistry at the University of Medicine and Dentistry in Newark (now known as Rutgers School of Dental Medicine).
