The Marlin Art Gallery

AG-aboutus


Camden County College established an art gallery on the Blackwood campus:

• to provide an accessible venue for student and professional artists to display original works of art
• to allow students and community members to become discriminate, critical views of original works of art.


Exhibitions, which change monthly, include an annual student and an annual faculty show.  Shows may include, but not be limited to a variety of media such as painting, drawing, sculpture, pottery, photography, video, animation, fiber art, computer graphics, construction or flame fired glass.  Gallery space is available for group or individual shows chosen by request, committee, or jurors.

Artists’ receptions allow students and community an opportunity to meet the artist(s).  Lectures or readings during these receptions and at other times in the gallery encourage viewers to respond intellectually and emotionally to the works presented.  Appreciation of the feelings and concepts expressed in the renderings by the artist help the viewer to relate to the universal messages conveyed through original works of art.

In 2009, the gallery was named the Marlin Gallery in honor of Dr. William Marlin, the first full time art faculty member who worked to establish the art gallery at Camden County College.
