CCC Professor's Works in Three-Artist Exhibition in Philadelphia

 

The large-scale graphite drawings and ink-and-varnish paintings of Camden County College Professor Gregory Brellochs are joining the drawings and paintings of Danielle Bursk and the photographs of Amie Potsic in “Lay of the Land,” a featured Philadelphia Open Studio Tours exhibition at the Bluestone Fine Art Gallery, from Oct. 3 to Nov. 5.

 

Brellochs’ pieces explore physical, sensual and visceral worlds of the imagination. His images are intended as catalysts for contemplation while evoking a poetic fascination for the inner workings of nature and the mind.

 

Previously, Brellochs’ work has been the subject of solo shows at CCC’s campus gallery, Clay College in Millville, Center City’s AxD Gallery, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and Opus One in Munich, Germany. He also has shown work at Arcadia University, Bucks County Community College, Moore College of Art and Design, Thomas Architects & Engineers, Wayne Arts Center and Philadelphia’s Center for Emerging Visual Artists, where he completed a two-year Career Development Program Fellowship. Past honors for the Philadelphia resident include selection to the 30th annual Samuel S. Fleisher Art Memorial Wind Challenge Exhibitions and addition of his two-dimensional work to the registry of contemporary drawings at New York City’s The Drawing Center.

 

Brellochs has taught sculpture and design full-time at the College since 2005, and he received tenure in 2009. He holds a bachelor’s degree from the Massachusetts College of Art and a master’s degree from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts.

 

Bluestone’s “First Friday” opening reception for the show will be held from 5 to 8 p.m. Oct. 7. The artists also will be present during the Philadelphia Open Studio Tours from noon to 6 p.m. Oct. 15 and 16, which includes a reception from 3 to 5 p.m. Oct. 15. Bluestone’s “First Friday” closing reception will be held from 5 to 8 p.m. Nov. 4. The exhibition also may be viewed 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays and by appointment.
