About the Artist

Trombly has been an artist for most of his life. His first artistic successes were as a musician-composer, performer and conductor. More recently he has been working in the visual arts.  His visual art has been exhibited in museums and galleries throughout the greater New York Metropolitan and Tri-Stare areas.

“For me, the need to make art has been a driving force in my life. Whether it’s working with and organizing sounds overtime, or more recently colors, materials and shapes in space; my work is about turning initially vague, fleeting and amorphous ideas into solid, concrete and comprehensible works of art. My experiences composing and creating musical structures inform my current work in the visual arts. Found objects, pieces of metal, wood, fabric an artist’s pigments are the raw materials of my recent art. Each piece begins when a particular juxtaposition of elements intrigues me enough to start working on a piece.”

The Gallery is in FDU’s Edward Williams Hall, 150 Kotte Place, Hackensack, N.J. Gallery hours are Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m., and Saturday, 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. There is no admission charge. For directions and for more information, call 201-692-2449.
