BLACKWOOD – Camden County College celebrates not only the art of students, but the pieces of its staff as well. Once a year, CCC showcases the artwork of its faculty at the Visual Arts Faculty Exhibit at the Marlin Art Gallery on the Blackwood campus.
This year, the exhibit will open Nov. 13 and close Dec. 13. The artists’ reception will be held Nov. 13. The Marlin Art Gallery is open 1 to 3 p.m. Tuesdays to Thursdays. Admission is free and the gallery is open to the public. The artists’ reception is also free and open to the public.
Students of all majors are welcome to view the exhibit; however, art students are encouraged to attend. Professor Kay Klotzbach, who has shown in the exhibit 13 times, says, “It’s good for the students to see what I do when I’m not teaching them.”
Klotzbach says she hopes students who attend the exhibit take away one thing from her pieces and that is, “That I practice what I preach.”
The faculty showing in this year’s exhibit includes new professors as well as veteran professors, art department staff and CCC adjuncts. All of the work, including sculptures, paintings, photography and film, will be the newest of each faculty member’s collections. Some faculty members will have pieces for sale. Klotzbach will be selling three.
The 2013 Visual Arts Faculty Exhibit will include work from:
• Kay Klotzbach, Lindenwold
• Fred Herr, Collingswood
• Gregory Brellochs, Philadelphia
• Tom Murray, Bristol, Pa.
• Meredith Amos, Vineland
