As an artist, Mr. Silber began working in pastels and pen and ink in his early fifties. He has studied art at the Montclair Art Museum under master pastelist Catherine Kinkade and is an alumnus of her master class. His work has been in numerous group shows with Ms. Kinkade and her students and has been juried into the Celebration of Lawyers in the Arts shows in 2003, 2005 and 2007. His art draws on recurrent themes from his childhood in England and includes numerous landscapes from the Lake District and the Berkshires in Massachusetts. During 2006, Mr. Silber had a one-man show entitled Simple Pleasures, featuring 24 of his works.

Silber says of his work, “My art provides a window into my life and my thinking – showing the imaginative, the inquisitive and the whimsical. Examining realities is the farthest from my mind when
drawing or painting, especially when working en plein air. Thus landscapes become abstracted and
impressionistic and drawings become unconsciously reflective of attitudes.”
