CCC Gallery Showing Works by 13 Artists in 'A Matter of Perspective'

 

Camden County College’s Marlin Gallery is presenting works executed in a broad range of media and techniques by 13 artists from throughout the United States in “A Matter of Perspective.” The show is on display through April 3.

The exhibition was curated by Philadelphia artist Yikui Gu, an instructor at Camden County College, the University of the Arts and the College of Southern Maryland. Works are by Laura Adams, Melissa Barlett, George Bedell, David Campbell, Sam Metcalf, Skirmantas Pipas, Mia Pastore Rosenthal, Colleen Rudolf, Mike Shultis, Anna Souvarov, Olive Thomas, Andrew Wodzianski and Pete Zelby.

The exhibiting artists represent a sizable geographical range, from Philadelphia to New York and Washington, D.C., to San Jose and Seattle. Their works showcase a variety of media, from oil paintings to installations that require viewer participation.

“Regardless of the disparate approaches to art-making or the different energies of the artists’ cities, the works included all have the potential for multiple meanings and thus require the viewer to consider more than one vantage point,” says Gu. “This may mean a literal change in position, or it may refer to a multifaceted consideration on philosophical, conceptual or aesthetic grounds. No matter where the point of departure is, though, to view, interpret and understand these works truly is a matter of perspective.”

Admission to “A Matter of Perspective” is free. The exhibition is open to the public.

The Marlin Gallery is located inside Lincoln Hall on the College’s Blackwood Campus. The campus is located at College Drive and Peter Cheeseman Road in Gloucester Township.

Hours are 1 to 3 p.m. Tuesdays through Thursdays, with additional viewing hours available by contacting gallery director Therese Marlin at (856) 227-7200, ext. 4201, or artgallery@camdencc.edu.
