Faculty Show an Array of Artistic Delights at CCC's Marlin Gallery

 

Camden County College’s 45th annual “Visual Arts Faculty and Staff Exhibition” is like a tray of hors d’œuvres: there are an array of pieces, some savory or sweet, some peppery or mild and some bold or delicate. And each guest gets to choose exactly which offerings he or she wants to experience.

 

Photography, clay, glass, acrylics, soapstone and graphite are among the media that the 12 exhibiting full- and part-time faculty and staff used to create the works being shown. According to gallery director Therese Marlin, each teacher-artist has conveyed a unique perspective through the works he or she has chosen to execute and present for public consumption.

 

“Gallery visitors are invited to respond to the cerebral yet sensual graphite works of Greg Brellochs; the bold, self-revealing acrylics of Kay Klotzbach; or the voyeuristic, introspective glass work of Phil Rychert,” Marlin said. “Camden County College’s visual arts instructors are all artists. Many are represented by galleries in Philadelphia, all have shown in local and/or national galleries, and some have had or are scheduled to have one-person shows. Because of their dual status, these faculty and staff are able to help their students develop the skills and techniques needed to produce art along with the self-determination and persistence to show art.”

 

“Visual Arts Faculty and Staff Exhibition” will open with an artists’ reception from 5 to 7 p.m. Nov. 16 and continue through Dec. 16. Admission to the reception and the show is free.

 

The Marlin Gallery is located inside Lincoln Hall on the College’s Blackwood Campus, which is at College Drive and Peter Cheeseman Road in Gloucester Township. Regular hours are 1 to 3 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday. Additional hours may be arranged by appointment.
