Rabbi Barton Shallat
Oil on Linen, 40" x 30"
Collection Temple Beth El
Huntington, New York

"When I learned that Queens Library wanted to honor the memory of former board member Judge Robert T. Groh by commissioning an artist to paint his portrait, I immediately thought of you. Having already collaborated on the portrait of Rabbi Barton Shallat which currently hangs in the lobby of Temple Beth El in Huntington, New York, I knew of your high level of artistic talent and personable demeanor. The Library’s Board of Directors solicited proposals from numerous artists seeking to paint Judge Groh’s portrait, and after extensive review, they selected you as the artist of choice.

The portrait of Judge Groh now hangs in the newly dedicated Robert T. Groh Executive Board Room. It beautifully represents the character, dignity and personal warmth of Judge Groh, and serves as a wonderful tribute to this distinguished gentleman.

On behalf of everyone at Queens Library, I want to express our appreciation for your creative effort. You were able to artistically capture a likeness that is treasured by all who view it, and I would wholeheartedly recommend your services to anyone interested in having a portrait painted." –Peter Wayne, Associate Director, Queens Library Foundation
